…as long as she’s Wafa Sultan.


Sultan, an Arab-American Psychologist living in L.A., has a unique ability to stand up for the ideals of democracy and free speech while completly decimating Islamist arguments.

This ability is completly lacking in American politics today. We don’t have it and we need it, badly.

Watch as she verbally drop-kicks her opponents in this Memri TV clip.*

Here’s a clip from the transcript:

Arab-American Psychologist Wafa Sultan: There Is No Clash of Civilizations but a Clash between the Mentality of the Middle Ages and That of the 21st Century

Wafa Sultan: The Muslims are the ones who began using this expression. The Muslims are the ones who began the clash of civilizations. The Prophet of Islam said: “I was ordered to fight the people until they believe in Allah and His Messenger.” When the Muslims divided the people into Muslims and non-Muslims, and called to fight the others until they believe in what they themselves believe, they started this clash, and began this war. In order to start this war, they must reexamine their Islamic books and curricula, which are full of calls for takfir and fighting the infidels.

My colleague has said that he never offends other people’s beliefs. What civilization on the face of this earth allows him to call other people by names that they did not choose for themselves? Once, he calls them Ahl Al-Dhimma, another time he calls them the “People of the Book,” and yet another time he compares them to apes and pigs, or he calls the Christians “those who incur Allah’s wrath.” Who told you that they are “People of the Book”? They are not the People of the Book, they are people of many books. All the useful scientific books that you have today are theirs, the fruit of their free and creative thinking. What gives you the right to call them “those who incur Allah’s wrath,” or “those who have gone astray,” and then come here and say that your religion commands you to refrain from offending the beliefs of others?

I am not a Christian, a Muslim, or a Jew. I am a secular human being. I do not believe in the supernatural, but I respect others’ right to believe in it.

Dr. Ibrahim Al-Khouli: Are you a heretic?

Wafa Sultan: You can say whatever you like. I am a secular human being who does not believe in the supernatural…

Dr. Ibrahim Al-Khouli: If you are a heretic, there is no point in rebuking you, since you have blasphemed against Islam, the Prophet, and the Koran…

Wafa Sultan: These are personal matters that do not concern you.

[...]

Wafa Sultan: Brother, you can believe in stones, as long as you don’t throw them at me

Here’s another example of her unique style of anti-Islamist butt-kicking..

The world needs to hear more from Wafa Sultan.

Via the Jersey Journal:

About 200 teamsters and longshoremen joined three U.S. senators at Port Newark to protest the sale of some American port operations to a state-owned company from the United Arab Emirates.

Most of these protesters live a few miles from the World Trade Center. Most probably watched as thousands of innocent people were crushed and burned by an Islamist-funded act of war, an act of war that was enabled and carried out by Islamists from the UAE. I guess they still remember that.

Maybe some know that the government of Dubai is still spreading a message of fascism and hate.

[U.S. senator Frank] Lautenberg said he would introduce legislation this week that would require the Department of Homeland Security to review changes of ownership of a terminal operator within a port of the United States for security problems.

“Don’t let them tell you that it’s just a transfer of title. Baloney,” Lautenberg said. “We wouldn’t transfer the title to the devil, and we’re not going to transfer it to Dubai.”

Yes, they still remember.

According to a recent poll, most Americans are “strongly opposed” to the Bush administration’s agreement with the Dubai Ports World.

Americans are strongly opposed to the Bush administration’s agreement to allow a Dubai company to operate terminals at six American ports and are increasingly negative about the situation in Iraq, according to the latest CBS News poll.

Seventy percent, including 58 percent of Republicans, said DP World, controlled by the emir of Dubai, should not be allowed to operate the ports, while 21 percent supported the deal.

Meanwhile, Dubai Ports World participates in the Arab boycott against Israel,

Yes, of course the boycott is still in place and is still enforced,” Muhammad Rashid a-Din, a staff member of the Dubai Customs Department’s Office for the Boycott of Israel, told the Post in a telephone interview.

“If a product contained even some components that were made in Israel, and you wanted to import it to Dubai, it would be a problem,” he said.

A-Din noted that while the head office for the anti-Israel boycott sits in Damascus, he and his fellow staff members are paid employees of the Dubai Customs Department, which is a division of the PCZC, the same Dubai government-owned entity that runs Dubai Ports World.

Moreover, the Post found that the website for Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone Area, which is also part of the PCZC, advises importers that they will need to comply with the terms of the boycott…

…In one instance, according to a Commerce Department press release, a New York-based exporter agreed to pay a fine for having “failed to report in a timely manner its receipts of requests from Dubai” to provide certification that its products had not been made in Israel.

Israel is a major source for innovative products, including medical technologies that have improved the lives of people worldwide. In the Middle East, they’re the only local source of innovation. The UAE, like other members of the Arab League, won’t allow these products into their country. I guess the UAE isn’t as modern as they pretend to be.

..and, of course, there’s also the fact that president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan funds the Abu Dhabi-based Zayed Center for Coordination and Follow-Up, a prominent think tank of the Arab League. According to Rachel Fish:

The Zayed Center, described on its Web site “as the fulfillment of the vision of Sheikh Zayed,” promotes Holocaust denial, anti-American conspiracy theories and hate speech in its lectures, symposiums and publications.

In related news, our allies in the Arab League are continuing their campaign to restrict free speech in non-Islamic nations.

AMMAN – Arab League Secretary General Amr Mussa on Monday considered the Prophet Mohammed’s cartoons as part of a “battle against Islam” rather than a symptom of conflict among civilizations, and urged Arab parliamentarians to put pressure on the United Nations to come up with a “strict” solution to this problem.

Just part of an organized campaign to spread apartheid Sharia worldwide…

Darren McGavin, the raspy-voiced lead of the television series Kolchak: The Night Stalker and Mike Hammer, has died.

The 83-year-old actor passed away Saturday of natural causes in a Los Angeles hospital, said his son, Bogart McGavin.
McGavin had a busy career in television and film, winning one Emmy in 1990 for an appearance as Candice Bergen’s opinionated father in a Murphy Brown episode…

…Some may recall him as the cantankerous dad in the 1983 comedy A Christmas Story.

I thought that was his best role (although Kolchak was a close second)

The Night Stalker was sort of a prototype for the X-files – except it was, like, a hundred times better.
