Reader comment on item: [Fixing] Islam's Image Problem

Submitted by Eileen Wahl (United States), Aug 2, 2003 at 15:57

Dear Daniel,

As one gentleman said in a reply about your article, "Don't falter"! I just finished reading an article in Arabnews.com by James Zogby regarding you and your views on Muslims in America. Talk about distortions and taking quotes out of context! To someone not familiar with your written work, the article made it appear that you are Islamaphobic, narrow minded and advocate violance, yet clearly, he could not have read your work!

I e-mailed him back and said that to able to write such a misleading article, he had either of 2 agendas:

The first being that he had not read your work and erroneously came to conclusions not based on reality, perhaps parroting comments that others (who were bent on defaming you) had stated. OR

He is trying to manipulate and/or be an apologist for fanaticsm in the form of Islam.

Keep Strong!

Eileen
