From our massive Emperors-New-Clothes File comes this letter from Jihad Watch reader Dr. Robert A. Koslover to UCLA Professor Michael Ross, architect of the trail-blazing new study that has discovered that oil, not Islam, accounts for the oppression of Muslim women:
Dear Prof. Ross:
I just wanted to express my admiration and offer my congratulations upon the publication of your deliciously-brilliant satire, Oil, Islam, and Women, at http://www.sscnet.ucla.edu/polisci/faculty/ross/Oil%20Islam%20and%20Women%20v5.pdf.
Believe it or not, quite a few web-pundits are taking the arguments presented in it seriously
. For example, take a look at http://www.jihadwatch.org/. Mr. Spencer took the bait, hook, line, and sinker!
Personally, I haven’t laughed this hard since I read Mark Twain’s suggestion that society could be improved if poor people were made into sausages (see http://www.twainquotes.com/Cannibals.html) to feed hungry cannibals. Heh!
Anyway, keep up the good work, and please convey my regards to your colleagues and graduate students at UCLA.
Dr. Robert A. Koslover
