Dr Pipes

I read recently an exchange between a Jewish woman, who is a lawyer, lesbian and to add insult to injury she lives in Brooklyn, and a brave and articulate ex-Muslim woman. And the Jewish woman loves to defend al-Shari'a al-Islamiyya and she pretends to know what is in the books of Islam in general and al-Shari'a al-Islamiyya in particular

She was reminded that if she lives in an Islamic country she would have several strikes against her; Being a woman, Jewish and lesbian and that the punishment of lesbians in the Qur'an is to isolate them in a room until they die. Her answer was; You are an islamophobe!

No I'm not kidding!

Notice that when communists, who are infesting most of academia these days, are reminded about the fact that under communism in the 20th century more that 100M human beings were murdered in China, the Soviet Union Cambodia etc.. and the likes of Solzhenitsyn's "The Gulag Archipelago" is a vivid testimony to the atrocities of communism against Russians Their answer is: But there has never been perfect application of communism! Not unlike when Muslims and islamists are reminded about the fact millions of human beings were murdered because they were not Muslim and the answer is: But there has never been a perfect Muslim state since the days of al-Khulafa' al-Rashiduun

And when Islamists are reminded that the times of al-Khulafa' al-Rashiduun were times of war and atrocities and three of the four Khulaf'a were murdered by other Muslims, as the Egyptian secularist Farag Foda told Islamists, they go on the attack and in the case of Farag Foda he was killed

The Left/Communism and Islam have very much in common
