The Fall 2010 issue of The Objective Standard features a major new article by Craig Biddle, “The Ground Zero Mosque, the Spread of Islam, and How America Should Deal with Such Efforts“.

Craig Biddle explains the crucial importance of recognizing that we are at war with a deadly enemy — and the importance of defending America based on the principles of individual rights and the rue of law.

One key quote:

If we want to protect civilized society, we must unwaveringly uphold the principles of civilized society — no matter how justifiably outraged we may become about the irrationalities and injustices perpetrated by our enemies. If, in an effort to stop Muslims from destroying America, we trample individual rights and the rule of law, we will have surrendered the very thing we were supposed to be fighting to protect.

Thank you, Craig, for a well-written and well-reasoned piece!

(The rest of the Fall 2010 lineup looks excellent as well.)
