Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo

The Administration has adopted the position that it can work with Islamists—those who advocate a prominent political and legal role for Islam.  This decision is having far-reaching consequences at home and abroad.  Islamists have been brought into the innermost circles of America’s national security institutions; counter-terrorism training has been drastically curtailed in order to remove all mention of religion; and abroad the United States is supporting fundamentalist parties and ignoring those who are persecuted or who suffer as a result. This half-day conference will examine in detail the United States’ increasing cooperation with Islamists at home and abroad and will make the case why America’s freedom is threatened by this dangerous embrace.

The Westminster Institute promotes individual dignity and freedom for people throughout the world by sponsoring high-quality research with a particular focus on the threats from extremism and radical ideologies.
