Dr. Pipes

The arabs have great love for dogs despite of Islam. They have dogs as pets and for protection and as guide for the blind.

Now enter the Pakistanis the likes of Ifran Yusuf and the story changes, and you are facing a different type of Islam which is more dogmatic and irrational (even the silly thing about the not charging of interest is not from the Arab world but from Muslim India/Pakistan and those wannabe Arabs are more catholic than the pope himself). And like I say: Our enemy is Pakistan and their form of Islam

In NYC taxi drivers are supposed to take classes about what is New York City all about. They are told that guide dogs are allowed in cabs period

As for Nihad Awad's claim that Muslims are afraid of dogs: it is nothing but his own way of justifying the absurd

Maybe you need to invite Ifran Yusuf to this blog and we can have a chat with him
