I'm afraid that I'm not so sanguine that Leftists would allow her to speak, as the case of Ayaan Hirsi Ali shows.

And the reason that the Christian Fundamentalists of "Fly Over" country are seen as the enemy (even when as you say they are much more mild) is that politically they are a much bigger threat.

And nevermind the cognitive dissonance of recognizing that Fundamentalist Islam isn't a counter-Imperialist movement. Personal constructs would be at risk.

You could be right. Take a look at what I say in Part 2 of my comments, posted today.

Everything is very open with a clear clarification of the issues. It was definitely informative. Your website is useful. Many thanks for sharing!

I almost never comment, however i did a few searching and wound up here Nightmare in Green: Comments on Karima Bennoune’s “Your Fatwa Doesn’t Apply Here” - I Want a New Left. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of these responses look like left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

ppi claims: There were many stupid comments to this post, most of which were obviously spam, so I deleted them. The comment by "increase ranking" at first looked like spam, but I left it in because it did seem to be an actual comment, even if it was rather lame.

I'm not writing at any other sites, plus I don't have either a Facebook account or a twitter feed. I'm on linkedin, but I don't do much of anything with it, since I signed up for it by accident. But if you look up my name (John Pepple), I suppose you could find my profile.
