0 Salman Rushdie and Irshad Manji at 92nd Street YIrshad Manji, the Muslim reformer whom The New York Times calls “Osama bin Ladens worst nightmare,” as she launches a series of public conversations about moral courage in journalism, politics, religion and beyond, engaging with leaders who will illuminate and influence the future of free expression in a fragile world.

    What a stupid …
    What a stupid response by Salman and Irshad at the 1:17:00 mark with regards to George Bush and radical Islam. Majority of the left (including radicals and communists) in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria are more sympathetic to President Bush than President Obama. After the pre-arranged elections in Iran, how is the process of laissez-faires that President Obama advocated helping the left there? I am not advocating a full invasion of Iran but some logistic help to the left would have been nice.

    Under gunpoint, I would profess any faith to save my life. In his position, I would have preferred to remain in hiding more an additional year or two. You may defend his behavior if you like; just don’t call it courageous.

    When Salman Rushdie was in hiding, he suddenly announced that he had embraced Islam. Shortly afterward, he renounced his sudden profession of faith. Was that moral courage?

    Multiculturalism …
    Multiculturalism has not failed, islam is failing and refusing to be multicultural. The Welsh, the Scottish, the Irish, the English, the Scandinavians, the Indians, other Europeans, the Russians, and any other cultural can and are living peacefully in the UK, except islamists who want to bring us all down on our knees.
