Hey Ahmed

I have news for you, since you seem to think you know all about me.

FYI: I've assisted in website administration and I've been blogging for years, and you'll have to do better than insinuating that I am a Nazi if you want to keep up with me. I'm sure you're feeling a lot of pride right now about about what you said, but really here in America that name has been used so much it's lost it's meaning. Just like a clueless guy on a date who over-compliments a woman.

You may be a whiny Western liberal, but don't think that insulting me is going to get me to shut-up. Been around too long for that one.

First of all, I don't care what you believe, my assessments were on your posts, not on your religion.

Secondly, you sure don't sound like any conservative I know. The last thing they would do is defend Islam.

Third: As far as me staying away from intellectual conversations, I guess I did stray by talking to you. After all, intellectuals don't call people names (a sign of insecurity on your part). I would say that responses were closer to the mark of what you really think than you would like, Ahmed.

PS---I'm not 100% white and I'm a Catholic, not exactly the right ingredients for a Nazi.

Submitting....
