The Hate Mail Bag today brings me a message from “email@example.com.” Yes, “ignorace.” Anyway, here is Ignorace’s message:
Blame your ignorance instead of quoting names of wesrern persons and places.
Blame your ignorance of not konwing names like : Averroes, Ibn khaldun, Avicenna, Ibn Al Nafis, Ibn Alhaytham, Najib Mahfooz, Ahmad Zewail, Taj Mahal, Alhambra, Mohammad Abdalwahab, Omar Khayam and 100s of other names. Ignorance source of blind animosity.
congratulations that you have a british museum. Do you know what is inside ? and where it came from ?
“Ignorace” is, of course, ignorant of the fact that I have discussed many of those names in my book Islam Unveiled and elsewhere. And Mahfouz, of course, suffered greatly for his “heresy,” as did many of the medieval philosophers.
But much more important is the fact that he slips in “Mohammad Abdalwahab” among his Islamic luminaries. You may have heard of him — Muhammad ibn abd al-Wahhab, founder of Wahhabism? The virulent and violent Islamic sect that is responsible for so much jihad activity in the world today (although by no means all of it)? He’s a hero along with Avicenna and Averroes, eh?
Actually al-Wahhab probably would have had them stoned to death.
Finally: what is in the British Museum? Two gross of broken statues? A few thousand battered books? Where did it come from? You want to give me a hint? Maybe Suleiman the Magnificent transported it by caravan across North Africa, up through Spain, and across the Channel? Do tell.
