I just want to say that Mr. Christopher Orlet in his article “A Fatwa on the Truth” has really gone on overdrive to rant about the freedom of speech and writing.
In Mr. Orlet’s sordid and salacious view to hit at Muslims, to hurl abuse at Muslims, to demonize Muslims is fair game. I wonder where his morality is when someone writes something critical about the JEWS then the whole media turns with allegations of anti-Semitism? These writers are not only accused of anti-Semitism they are then subjected with legal suits. They are simply hounded and there are many such examples both in USA and Canada. Your freedom has gone so far that it has become illegal to question certain historical facts and can risk going to prison. Besides USA and Canada there are several countries where the JEWS have lobbied to make it a law to question anything relating to the events in the World War II. Such is the FREEDOM that he is talking. It is classic example of “pot calling the kettle” black!. Your article certainly had a tinge of black humor about it.p>In today’s world where writers’ noble duty is to build bridges Mr. Orlet has turned to fan the flames of hatred. To demonize all Muslims in such a fashion shows how narrow-minded Mr. Orlet is in his approach. Yesterday, it was the Jews who were demonized by the people in Europe. Instead of learning from history, Mr. Orlet seems to be taking a leaf out of the times of the Nazis and expressing his views such blatant racism. Sad to see, that there are writers who are still peddling their perverted art of writing in respected journals like Spectator , and seem to get away with it. br> — M. Z. Iqbal br> Surrey, England /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
