Got a real stinker for ya:
Hussein Ibish (another Yusuf rubs it)
* When an real ugly bigot & hypocrite points the finger at others and turns reality upside down then know: you are dealing with …………. (fill in yourself)
American culture’s view of American Muslims and Islam is steadily deteriorating under an onslaught of “bigotry” on cable news shows, newspaper op-ed pages and in the blogosphere, an Arab-American activist told an audience at Tulane University here Tuesday.
That’s a significant shift, said Hussein Ibish, founder of the Foundation for Arab-American Leadership in Washington, D.C.
Decades before 9/11, Hollywood handed Americans the perceived wisdom on Arabs as passionate, hyper-sexed, irrational and cruel. Movies such as Rudolph Valentino’s 1921 silent classic The Sheik and turn-of-the-century thrillers such as The Rules of Engagement portrayed Arabs only as terrorists, Ibish said.
* Hmm, I wonder why that is, any ideas?
Since the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, however, Hollywood has backed off. In the meantime, Ibish said, commentators and politicians on the right â€” and a few on the left â€” have replaced film stereotypes with hours of air time devoted to misrepresenting Islam and fueling suspicion about American Muslims.
Since 9/11, he said, commentators such as Malkin, Ann Coulter, Charles Krauthammer, Daniel Pipes and David Horowitz have transferred old anti-Arab stereotypes to Islam, in a stream of “incredibly bigoted commentary” that would not have been tolerated before then.
“This is what explains the collapse of the good name of Islam,” he said.
* Any comments…?
In this context, Ibish said, the West sees Islam as bent on its destruction and American Muslims as suspected allies who cannot credibly deny otherwise. Thus, ethnic profiling becomes reasonable and forced internment or mandatory identification of Muslims becomes a potential remedy, he said.
* Ya think? Well, if it becomes too hard you can always move to the Islamo-paradise of your choice, bro. Sooner is better. Make it easy on yourself and leave before it happens!
*Â He plays with facts – at will doubling U.S. governmental aid to Israel or tripling the number of Iraqis killed by the sanctions regime. One exasperated columnist characterizes his writings as “systematic deceit.”
*Â Anyone he dislikes is liable to be compared to Nazis. Officers of the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission are “stormtroopers.” A mild newspaper article about Islam is “genocidal” and “reminiscent of the most bizarre passages of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.” U.S. sanctions on Iraq are “genocidal.”
*Â He bandies about accusations of espionage for Israel. American journalists he disagrees with are “transparently operating in concert and at the direction of the Israeli government.” The Anti-Defamation League is an arm of Israeli intelligence.
* Ibish is a Muslim and an Arab agent provocateur. What else do you expect?Â
Westerners opposed to the application of the Islamic law (the Shari’a) watch with dismay as it goes from strength to strength in their countries â€” harems increasingly accepted, a church leader endorsing Islamic law, a judge referring to the Koran, clandestine Muslim courts meting out justice. What can be done to stop the progress of this medieval legal system so deeply at odds with modern life, one that oppresses women and turns non-Muslims into second-class citizens?
A first step is for Westerners to mount a united front against the Shari’a. Facing near-unanimous hostility, Islamists back down. For one example, note the retreat last week by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in a dispute concerning guide dogs used by the blind. [emphasis added].

Qaradawi Fan Club Demands Hemorroides Treatment In UK
Supporters of Muslim cleric protest UK visa refusal
Hundreds of supporters of Egyptian-born Muslim cleric Youssef al-Qaradawi protested Wednesday in Qatar Britain’s decision to deny the influential preacher entry for medical treatment on grounds he supports terrorism.
* He does. Its his ‘religion…’
Around 200 hundred people shouted slogans and recited prayers in front of the British embassy in Qatar’s capital Doha, declaring that the 81-year old cleric, who is a trustee of the Oxford University Center for Islamic Studies and chairman of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, is not a terrorist.
“Qaradawi is someone who has always worked to promote dialogue and understanding among different faiths,” said Muhammad Sawalha, president of the British Muslim Initiative and one of the protesters in Doha on Wednesday. “He has never supported terrorism, on the contrary, he has condemned it publicly many times.”
* ‘Dialogue’ with Muslims
Britain announced February 6 that it had refused to issue a visa to Qaradawi, saying it would not tolerate visitors seeking to justify terorrism.
