There have been some uninformed and slightly hysterical attacks on Gov. Mitch Daniels because he accepted an award from the Arab American Institute last week. Have a look at this speech Daniels delivered two years ago when he was honored by B’nai Brith.
UPDATE: Consider his very frank comments about Muslim anti-Semitism: “And then, most dangerously, a very large sector of one of the great religions of this world openly and unapologetically commit to the threatening and hoping for extinction of the state of Israel. Not a fringe movement of that religion but a mainstream portion. . .”
Listen to the entire speech. It includes references to Maj. Hassan and Fort Hood.
The attacks on Daniels could not be more ignorant or misguided.
