The slick and self-proclaimed moderate Muslim Tarek Fatah recently attacked the great and courageous ex-Muslim Wafa Sultan, thereby exposing himself as an enemy of those who are truly interested in defending human rights against the global jihad and Islamic supremacism. And now in an exchange with my friend Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi, an Iraqi who writes under his real name, he demonstrates an inability to answer tough questions, and manifests a racist presumption that anyone with an Arabic name cannot have the opinions Aymenn expresses here.
Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi: Tarek, I know you describe yourself as a secular liberal, but why do you sympathise with Benazir Bhutto? Would you now like to take the opportunity to condemn her for orchestrating the ethnic cleansing of Hindu Pandits from Kashmir in 1990? Please watch this video and pay particular attention to 2:15-4:00, where she is really calling for Jihad. Also, along with the Pakistani army and intelligence (which have always pursued an expansionist agenda inherent in Pakistan’s identity as an Islamic state), she helped bring the Taliban to power as Pakistan’s long arm in Afghanistan. Her rhetoric about democracy and liberalism was all a farce.
Tarek Fatah: That is hogwash that does not deserve a response. If you do not know about Bhutto, do not pretend you do. You are trying to play the bait game that I have no intention of being lured into.Do I need to present my credentials every time a Pakistan hater asks me to? Perhaps I should, but I will not. Is this a membership application to test my credentials for some politburo? I can see when a question is put in good faith and differentiate between rhetorical questions lobbed in bad faith. Sorry mate, nothing I say will convince you one way or the other. Please go ahead and deny my credentials to the society of pavitar souls. And please write under your real name.
At this point Fatah removed Aymenn as a friend from Facebook and blocked him from posting comments on his fan page.
