This is a great read & I highly recommend it. While it covers ground very familiar to most lizards, it also offers up examples of how supposed secular humanists sometimes fall into the trap of using “counter jihad” arguments.

E.G. I would point at Thunderfoot and Pat Condell, both atheists and rational humanists by declaration and theory, but who have both have furthered Newt Gingrich’s stupid “then put a church in Mecca” tit for tat argument regarding the ground zero mosque.

Everything I need to know about Islam I learned while working in Dearborn and seeing Muslims go about their daily lives just like everybody else.

re: #2 Randall Gross

I’ve noticed that Sam Harris, while not on a par with Condell, uses a lot of “counter jihad” arguments also. I’m not familiar with Thunderfoot, which is probably a good thing based on your comment, heh.

Thanks for pointing that out. It gives the lie to comments like this one about how Muslims “cause problems” when their population reaches large numbers.

BTW, same here regarding Jews in NY/NJ. Back in South Texas it was rare to see someone who was (identifiably) Jewish—i.e. I probably met a lot more Jews than I was aware of. Being overtly “different” there is not an easy thing, at least it wasn’t when I was growing up there (or even up until the late ’90s, when I left).

I’m also in a position to point out the idiotic bullshit that is spewed by Pam & pals about “Dearbornistan” being “under Sharia” and “banning the Israeli flag” and other outrageous outrages.

re: #6 Vicious Babushka

I was just looking at this PDF based on the 2000 census regarding the Arab population in the U.S. There’s a table on page 7 that provides a breakdown of the 10 cities with the largest Arab populations as well as 10 cities with populations of 100K+ that have significant Arab populations.

Granted, not all Arabs are Muslims (though the vast majority probably are), and it doesn’t take into account the large numbers of Muslims who aren’t ethnically Arab, however it does go to show how hollow some people’s assertions are.
