Thank you Dr. Pipes great response

Well this an Islamists thing and if you check Wagdi Ghoneim's web site and his youtube channel he blocks "responses" and as for his twitter feed only selected pals of his are allowed to post responses

Now check Mohamed el-Ibiary and in his twitter feed if I pose a question the likes of "Where is your evidence that Muhammad existed" he will block me

As for Khaled Abu al-Fadl can you imagine let us say the likes of John Wansbrough being one of his students and then he dare writes "Quranic Studies" I suspect that Wansbrough will flunk big time and he will write a book about it

This is why the US is no longer the leader in Middle Eastern Studies and the study of the history of early Islam or even the Arabic language. . Oh the best? No doubt Germany followed by the UK and France

Oh the Arab world? they are still stuck in their medieval texts and going in circles and complaining that we kuffar do not really get it
