We are supposed to believe what these two say about Islam, while what they say about me is demonstrably false. It doesn’t speak well for their trustworthiness.
Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir wrote this about me: “Robert Spencer claimed that Islam is a violent religion, which orders Muslims to kill all the Jews and Christians…”
I have written to Mir asking him for a retraction. So far, I haven’t received any response. I’ll keep you posted.
Meanwhile, on The O’Reilly Factor last Monday night, Edina Lekovic of MPAC said that I thought the only good Muslim was an ex-Muslim and that I wanted to drive all Muslims into the sea. I wrote this to her:
Dear Ms. Lekovic:
On the O’Reilly Factor with Laura Ingraham Monday evening, you asserted that I believe that the only good Muslim is an ex-Muslim, and that I wish to drive all Muslims into the sea.
In fact, I have never stated either of those positions, and do not believe them.
Accordingly, I am hereby requesting that you issue a public retraction of both statements.
Thank you in advance.
I haven’t heard back from her, either — and of course in reality I don’t expect to hear from either Mir or Lekovic, unless they decide to send more slander and abuse my way. But I think it is interesting that while they feel free to retail falsehoods about me, they then claim the moral high ground. And in that, of course, they are not alone.
