I’ve sort of suspected that Joe Gandelman might have lingering Islamophobia, but he makes it abundantly clear that he does in this post:
In “La Forza della Ragione,” Fallaci wrote that terrorists had killed 6,000 people over the past 20 years in the name of the Koran and said the Islamic faith “sows hatred in the place of love and slavery in the place of freedom.”
That’s news?? (Uh, oh — any minute I expect someone handing me court papers at my door). Actually, Fallaci shouldn’t have written that as a blanket statement. She should have said that in “many” case or “some” cases rarther than imply that in all cases does Islam sow hatred, etc. etc.
If that’s not Islamophobia, I don’t know what is. Associating an entire religion, and one billion people, with tyranny and hatred is LGF/KKK level insanity, the sort that even President Bush rightfully repudiates. Gandelman, consider your bigoted self off the blogroll.
