State Dept official: Greatest threat to extremism is "girls reading books"

State capitol, Salt Lake City
The first modern Parliament of the World's Religions, an attempt at achieving understanding between the many faiths of our planet, took place in the summer of 1993. Since then radical Islam, or extremism as leftist apologists call it, has committed countless atrocities.

The Parliament, meeting now in Salt Lake City, is still trying to find that bliss of understanding. Not helping matters was Rabbi David Saperstein, the US Department of State's Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, who gave an address.

"The greatest threat to extremism isn't drones firing missiles but girls reading books," Saperstein said during his speech. He received a standing ovation. While of course universal literacy is a goal that needs to be achieved, Saperstein is quite naïve. Nearly all young women in Iran, a major terrorism sponsor, can read and write. In Saudi Arabia, which supplied 15 of the 19 September 11 hijackers, young women also are literate. But the schools in that Islamo-supremacist state are plagued by Wahhabi hate.

Reading is important. Not reading hate speech is even more important. Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf was a required text in Nazi Germany.

Do they sing "Kumbaya" around the campfire during the Parliament of the World's Religions?
