Daniel, you need to follow up with your own post on this.

Reader comment on item: Once considered anti-Islam, senior scholar says he's now in the middle

Submitted by John (United States), Aug 18, 2010 at 18:13

Daniel, I've met you at UCLA when you spoke there with Wafa Sultan and Yaron Brook a few years back. I reported on it here at InfidelsAreCool.com

I like you a lot. I think you're one of the great thinkers of our time on these issues.

But I would caution you to be careful with an article like this from the Washington Post. It's obviously meant to create a wedge between you, your work, and all the hard work done by the blogging community on anti-terror, anti-Islamist activities here in America and across the globe.

I would highly recommend you follow this up with a clarifying post of your own. We are all on the same side, and more and more people, even yourself, are contributing to the debate through blogging. Sure, some aren't intellectual thinkers such as yourself, but many are, and many of us have the technological prowess and networking capability to get our message out quickly and effectively. It's all a part of the same game plan to expose poltiical and militaristic Islam as a whole both here in America and around the globe.

I would like to hear how you truly "differ" from the rest of your allies in the anti-jihad blogging community. I was upset by this report at first, but I want to get a clarification before I post on this. btw, I also now post at Gateway Pundit which is one of the highest traffic political blogs online today and would be happy to do a follow up there as well once i hear your response.
