"The Problem with Criticizing Islam"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_Ef46hcsDo&feature=g-user
-Anti Muslim bigots
: Racists, Christian bigots, Anti-theist anti Muslim bigots, Zionist anti Muslim bigots (Robert Spencer, Pat Condell, Michael Savage etc)
: Response to anti-Muslim bigots, feel guilty about colonialism/imperialism (Karen Armstrong, Deepak Chopra, George Galloway etc.)
: Lay Muslims (ignorant of Islamic doctrine), Muslim Clerics, Muslim apologists (propaganda and misinformation, professional liars), Islamo-fascists (radical, military Islam).
So where do we turn for less biased, more factual information?-Orientalists
And there is a long list of suggested names at 10:52.
That is a nice summary of that CHOR's
tube Jila. But I operate on basic principle "Nothing and no concept and no book and no post is unquestionable" There is always something that we could improve upon "However good that may be". Many of Chor's points are right in the sense that there are different types of critics of Islam and , some of them may have political agenda. That is his main point on so-called "Right wing Critics of Islam"
. Question is, do these right wing characters have rights to criticize Islam or not? If you give them that fundamental right, then there is no escape from them except listen to them. The only thing you can do is call them as Haters and expose their political agenda if they have one and , expose their hatred against Muslims. But that may not help. "It is like you hate I hate so let us fill Youtube program"
Next question is, Is criticizing Islam same as hatred against Muslims? Where are the boundaries for that? So my comment I have on that tube is, I don't think Klingschor read the works of those that you see at 10.52., For e.g. He puts out the name "William Muir "
,, the 2nd name in that list. Depending upon whom you ask, he could be made as "Islamophobe",..... Islam Hater ..... he took advantage of criticizing Islam to get that Governor Position in that undivided Indian subcontinent. That book from him "Life of Mahomet"
that is a terrific critic of Islam ., If he would have been born in Islam His head would have been hung on a pole for writing that book .
And I can easily say that if William Muir was alive and is on Tube., Klingschor would have considered him as Islamophobe ..Muslim hater and put him in to that category of Patcondells..
Even that nicest Muslim guy one could ever meet in life and did wonderful contribution to Indian subcontinent "Sir Syed Ahmad Khan "
considered William Muir as "Islamophobe" with ulterior motives So my criticism of . that Klingchor's tube is, He is a Chor.
And He didn't read the works of those guys whom he listed at 10.56 mts but made up a list of names whom he thought are good critics of Islam and you can learn Islam from them. I don't think so, You can neither take their works(the guys you see in that list)on their face value nor you can learn Islam, Islamic history, Islamic theology from them.
So Jila, can you question me and write something against what I said on that tube?
