Earlier today I wrote that Andrew McCarthy, in a piece yesterday at National Review, had for the first time in his writings about Islam advocated the end of immigration from Muslim countries. That was incorrect, or very largely incorrect. Mr. McCarthy has in the past, namely in an article he co-wrote with Herbert London in the Washington Times in 2006, explicitly called for drastic reductions in Muslim immigration. McCarthy and London wrote:

Immigration from and aid to Muslim countries should be drastically reduced. Upward adjustments should be contingent on measurable reforms that promote liberty while reducing the role of religion in politics. (Provision should be made for asylum for reformers.)

That article has also been referenced at VFR in the past. I simply forgot about it. My apologies to Andy McCarthy.

Also, I’ve taken the mistaken entry offline pending a re-write.
