Dr, Pipes

This is an amazing book.

Many members of the left support fascist ideas the likes of Islam and communism.

It no secret that communism was very popular among the left in England in the 1930's through the 1950's inspite of the fact that Stalin was a murderer and there were no personal freedoms in the communist USSR

i really do not get why would any human being support the in-equality of men and women, the in-equality of Muslims and non Muslims, genital mutilation, childhood marriages, the killing of apostates the criminal doctrines of holy war, slavery allowed by a so called deity, the rape of women in war and holy prostitution and to believe in flying winged horses. It does not make sense

PS: I'm sure you must be aware, and this is reality and not fiction, of the Maori prophet (Te Ua Haumene) in New Zealand who re-invented Islam in the 1860's with a God who reveals his words to him via the angel Gabriel and a Hijra and a Hajj and cultic site and a claim that the Maoris and the Jews have the same father . You will find more information about him in this blog

You will find also great information about him in Patricia Crone's Meccan Trade and the rise of Islam pages 247-248
