‘Top 10 reasons Islam might not be a religion of peace’

“A passenger revolt occurred on a Malaga-Manchester flight. Vacationing Brits refused to fly with two Arabic-speaking men. This came in the wake of arrests of 21 British-born Muslims who were plotting to blow up as many as 11 trans-Atlantic flights. A spokesman for Britain’s opposition Tory party said the passengers panicked into ‘behaving irrationally’. Fancy that, not wanting to fly with members of a faith whose adherents keep trying to blow things up. Oh, how irrational!”

Don Feder at ChronWatch, 31 August 2006

Though, to be fair, Feder isn’t hostile to all Muslims: “Occasionally, we’ll hear from a Muslim not mired in the Dark Ages. Usually, they’re wondering where all of the other moderate Muslims are. One is Irshad Manji, a fellow at Yale University and the author of ‘The Trouble With Islam Today: A Muslim’s Call for Reform in Her Faith’. Ms Manji can author such a book while safely ensconced in New Haven. If she wrote a book suggesting – or even hinting – that Islam is less than perfection, while residing anywhere in the Muslim world, she’d be dead.”
