What we've got here is a failure to communicate

Genieve Abdo says Muslim-American activists promote a mythical idea that Muslims from Egypt to Pakistan favour the United States arguing that such "happier narratives" based on bogus "interfaith dialogue" only serve to mask real differences between cultures. True, so far as it goes and only if by Muslim-American activists Abdo means the New York Times, CNN and the Bush administration; many actual Muslim activists have a more robust notion of public debate.

Abdo's prescription for the problem is dialogue both with disaffected youth in Europe - presumably those youths we read so much about, those belonging to no particular identifiable affinity group - and with a gamut of the creepy idols of said youth from Hamas to Hezbollah to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Commenting at Rantburg, McZoid offers an alternative communication strategy.

I communicate with members of the terror cult, all the time. I tell them to disregard that vulgar murder manual, the Koran. And I say that their so-called 'prophet' was a pedophile and a fraud.

Reminder: the phony 'prophet' was a sex-toy to an heiress to a wealthy trade family. When she turned 55 - Muhammad was 40 - he was so depressed at his lack of young booty that he went on a cave retreat. When he returned home he claimed that an angel began passing 'revelations' to him. He had no success in recruiting people until he organized a robber gang. Happy with the 'division of the spoils' (Anfal; a chapter of the Koran), the con-man promised his pigeons heavenly rewards if they fought to the death. Of course, the 'angel' assigned him 20% (khums tax) of the booty, and allowed him unlimited wives (he took 13; one at 6 years of age). His lies have resulted in the mass murder of at least one half billion people, and the extinction of ancient cultures.

That should clear the air nicely.

I was born a free citizen of the Old Canada and before her God I declare, that I will go to jail rather than acknowledge the legitimacy of any "human rights" commission. I invite other journalists and indeed, every other Canadian, to declare likewise.

Careful, you'll rouse the ire of the CHRC.
