Law student Saba Ahmed, who wears a head scarf, prefaced her question during a Heritage Foundation panel on Benghazi yesterday by saying, “We portray Islam and all Muslims as bad, but there’s 1.8 billion followers of Islam. We have 8 million plus Muslim-Americans in this country and I don’t see them represented here.” Then she asked, “How is it possible to fight and win an ideological war against jihadists?” Reaction took an instructive turn, beginning at 4:15 with panelist Brigitte Gabriel of ACT! for America whose central theme–“The peaceful majority is irrelevant”–earned earnest rounds of applause.
Watch above for Ahmed’s reply.
The clip ends with a question from panel moderator and conservative talk radio host Chris Plante to Ahmed: “Can you tell me who the head of the Muslim peace movement is?”
