Al-Qaeda likes Steve Bannon so much, they put him on the cover of their official newspaper – The Washington Post – The piece focused on Bannon’s views of Islam, saying he believes that “the forces of Islam cannot be stopped by peaceful means.” The paper cited a conversation Bannon had with a Danish journalist in May 2016. It also claimed that Bannon believes that the struggle is really between Christianity and Islam, not just Islam and the West. And it suggested that Bannon has “lost confidence in secular Europe, and sees Muslim immigrants as partially responsible for the retreat of traditional Christian values.”

Like other Trump advisers (and former advisers), Bannon has spoken publicly about these beliefs. In 2014, he gave a speech to the Vatican via Skype in which he said, “We’re now, I believe, at the beginning stages of global war against Islamic fascism.” On other occasions, he’s suggested that the “Judeo-Christian West” is at war with “expansionist Islamic ideology.”

On his radio show in 2015, he called for a complete halt to allowing Muslim immigrants into the United States. (“Why even let ’em in,” he asked Ryan Zinke, then a Republican congressman representing Montana). And as my colleagues have reported:
