“Stealth jihad, soft jihad, or what I prefer to call lawful Islamism is the effort to promote the goals of radical Islam via lawful means….It won’t lead to the blowing up of large cities, but it’s more of a risk in the sense that it has more likelihood of achieving its goal, that is the transformation of our countries into countries dominated by Islamic law.”
—Daniel Pipes, BBC Interview
“There is no escaping the unfortunate fact that Muslim government employees in law enforcement, the military and the diplomatic corps need to be watched for connections to terrorism, as do Muslim chaplains in prisons and the armed forces. Muslim visitors and immigrants must undergo additional background checks. Mosques require a scrutiny beyond that applied to churches and temples.
