    Nope, you have it wrong, Joe. The truth is that you scrape the bottom of the barrel for the bottom feeders like "Ibn Warraq" and Daniel Pipes, and you try and foist them on us as if they were legitimate observers and analysts, instead of taking responsibility for yourself for uttering their bigotries. When challenged on "Ibn Warraq" you state he would be in danger if his
    'true' identity were known, thereby showing that you have fallen for "Ibn Warraq" hook, line and sinker. Think about it: if you don't know who he is, how can you assert what would happen to him if his identity were known? It is only your blind anti-Semitic bigotry that keeps you from acknowledging this. In the days of the US civil rights movement, bigots were called 'red necks' and 'crackers' -- your venom is now simply directed against Muslims and Arabs.

    No, I don't know who he is, because if I did, so would the Radical Muslim faithful, and he would be fatwa'ed and in danger of assassination just like Salman Rushdie.
