Reader comment on item: Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: Our dear KH and a goat that ate a certain palm leaf

I don't believe I got around to giving you a response on this particular diatribe. When I responded to Mr. Pipes regarding Obama's childhood I was not defending the acts of Islam. I was pointing out that he was factually wrong in his statement. I'm not going to chase down every stupid thing that Muslim's do that is outside of the original faith anymore than I will chase down every stupid thing that Christians or any other faith does. I do not like religion. I in fact despise religion as an institution. However, I dislike the misstatement of facts for political purposes just as much especially when they are made by someone who classifies themselves as an academic.

Your list of sharia abominations interest me no more than a list of old testament trash or new testament trash. Your use of arabic implies nothing except a good translating program or a good knowledge of arabic, which if you have that you could put it to better use elsewhere.

You despise Islam and Arabs for whatever reason that is your concern and your loss. But you would be better served by attempting to have some objectivity in this area you find so absorbing, otherwise you will at some point from my perspective lose all credibility on this issue as I feel the original author of this article has done.
