Robert Spencer interviewed Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist who has become a Christian and has recently been speaking out against jihad ideology. He confirmed something Spencer discussed in Onward Muslim Soldiers that this talk of tolerance and non-violence is often cultivated by radical Muslims as part of a larger tactical strategy.
In the Palestinian Authority, this strategy involved the co-opting of the embattled Palestinian Christian minority into the larger jihadist agenda. With Christians, Shoebat explains “we saw a need for unity.” Palestinian Christians were happy to oblige. Most Palestinian Christians, says Shoebat, were “educated on Replacement Theology, in which God was done with Israel and Jews. They were in turn supportive of the Palestinian cause to liberate all Palestine.”
