Everything he needed to know he learned from Nietzsche

Reader comment on item: Is Tariq Ramadan Lying [about Magdi Allam]?

Submitted by Archimedes2 (Canada), Mar 6, 2007 at 19:27

An interesting quote from an interview with TR about his education: ------ He even wrote his doctoral thesis on Nietzsche. Had he ever experienced any doubts himself? "Doubts about God, no," he replied. "But questions, yes. Nietzsche raised strong and accurate questions about religion, on how religious identities are built, and how believers use victim status to become killers themselves. ------ Seems, like a good islamist, he's learned that last lesson well. Use the victim status to become a killer (or a liar in support of killers ... good enough). Good to see you got something out of your education, Tariq.
