Imagine how this must drive the Leftists and Islamic supremacists crazy: my new book Did Muhammad Exist? is the #1 bestselling book on Islam. That means it is outselling anything and everything by John Esposito, Karen Armstrong, Tariq Ramadan, Reza Aslan — you name it.
Islamic supremacists and their non-Muslim Useful Idiots have consistently refused my invitations to debate, claiming that I am some sort of fringe character whom they do not wish to dignify. But this gives the lie to their claim: the reality is that many, many people are listening to what I am saying and what other Islamorealists are saying, and they refuse to debate me for one reason only: because they know they’ll be soundly defeated.
In fact, we have sent out invitations to Esposito, Armstrong, Aslan, Juan Cole, the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and others to debate me on this question. But I won’t be waiting by the phone for an acceptance from any of them.
