…you might have trouble keeping your story straight.
Here’s an email I received from “james mitchell” on March 12, 2007:
i am a jew. please try to justify those verses from the bible.
There followed the usual litany of verses from the Hebrew Scriptures, trying to portray the Bible as just as violent as the Qur’an, and conveniently ignoring the fact that Jews and Christians are nowhere committing acts of violence that they are justifying them by reference to these verses, while Muslims are committing violence and justifying it by reference to the Qur’an all over the world.
Anyway, “james mitchell” kept writing to me now and again. And October 28, 2007, he wrote this:
yes the “truth” is hard to take. you constantly bash and demonize our religion. you say the reason terrorist do this is 100% because of islam. when in reality it has other factors. there are may people NON-MUSLIMS who know this. Ron paul, sagemen, pape, dennis kusinich and millions of others. every action has a reaction.
Our religion? But wait — I thought “james” was Jewish, and here he was criticizing me for allegedly “bashing” his religion — Islam!
And this afternoon I heard from him again:
listen i am a proud jewish man. i know that sounds absurd to you that a jewish man can stand up for muslims but i love everyone. what you say has been refuted. i can EASILY REFUTE everything you say. and zioism is not judaism. it is idiots like you who are ignorant, blind of world affairs and in a state of denial and not open to debate. people like you give jews like me a bad name. and i wrote the subject like that cause i know you would try to belittle a ignorant “subject”. so i have got the measure of you. and post this up with the rest of your “hate”-mail
yours truly james mitchel ( a proud jew who is against zionism)
The subject he is referring to was “idiot you.” But “james,” “james,” how can I get all worked up about how you’ve refuted me when you can’t even remember if you’re a Jew or a Muslim? Or is it that you keep converting from one to the other? If so, be careful none of your Muslim friends of the more fanatical variety get it into their heads that you’re an apostate, or you might lose your own!
