Are We Winning The War of Ideas?

Ariel Cohen of The Heritage Foundation poses this question in NR Online. The following is among the suggestions he is making there:

"Reform and reexamine funding for Middle Eastern studies programs at Western universities, some of which are hijacked by the Left, as Michael Kramer's recent book, Ivory Towers on Sand: The Failure of Middle Eastern Studies in America, amply demonstrates. Some Middle Eastern academics busy themselves with "explaining," if not outright justifying, the "root causes" of terrorism. Politically mobilized sympathizers and fellow travelers often claim expertise in the area, and oppose a robust effort against international terrorism."

A very important evaluation of a most critical dimension of the war we are in.
