"Muslim Weekly" Apologizes to Daniel Pipes

* Watch out, Yusuf: the smears don’t stick. Neither do the lies…

Thanks to Gramfan


Daniel Pipes

PHILADELPHIA – The Muslim Weekly, a London-based publication, issued an apology today to Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, concerning a defamatory article it published in February 2007.

That article repeated a false allegation made by Tariq Ramadan that Daniel Pipes had lied to a conference hosted by London mayor Ken Livingstone in January 2007. (For details of what did occur, see the article by Mr. Pipes, “Is Tariq Ramadan Lying [about Magdi Allam]?”)


Upon receipt of a libel complaint from Mr. Pipes, the Muslim Weekly accepted that Mr. Pipes spoke accurately at the conference and that he did not lie. The Muslim Weekly apologized to Mr. Pipes for the distress caused by the article. The Muslim Weekly’s retraction, published both in print and online in the Feb. 29, 2008 issue, reads in full as follows:

On February 9, 2007, the Muslim Weekly published an article, “World civilisation conference: Professor Tariq Ramadan on Islamic Threat,” under the byline of Dr. Mozammel Haque, concerning a speech given by Professor Ramadan on 20 January 2007. We reported that he accused Professor Daniel Pipes, an American specialist on the Middle East, of lying in his speech to the same conference about the religion of an Egyptian Muslim. We now understand that Professor Pipes spoke accurately and that he did not lie. We retract what we wrote about him and apologise to Professor Pipes for any distress caused by our article.

Reacting to this apology, Mr. Pipes said: “I am delighted that Muslim Weekly recognizes there is no truth whatsoever in Tariq Ramadan’s allegations concerning my statement at the World Civilization Conference, and that it has forthrightly set the record straight.”


* Tariq Ramadan is the slime…

  1. To see the humiliation of knuckledraggers who consider it their religious duty to humiliate non-Moslems is sweet indeed!

  2. “I have a dream!”

    I want to see articles of this ilk every single day. My other favourite dream is that people like Sheik and all the other brave ‘bloggers have to close their ‘blogs and can start enjoying their lives again. Yes, I know it is a dream.

  3. Gramfan, I’ve thought this. If most people had a brain, or a clue, we could all save ourselves a sh#tload of time and the jihad would be relegated to the history books.

  4. I agree, Savitch.

    There are just too many useful idiots around, especially downunder.
    Just had a quick peak at Bolt’s thread on Israel today. Some of these guys make Goebbels look like a rank amateur.
    History is being re-written as we speak. Morons in charge of every western country.

    The brave ‘bloggers have their work cut out for them for quite some time I fear.

  5. And with labor completely in the tank for the jihad to boot. I feel like doing a comic strip starring KRudd, I’ll have plenty of material over the next three years.
