Now, when I peruse, new and somewhat unfamiliar territory, I use what I call my "bull-shit-meter", it helps me to discern, to the best of my abilities, wether something is questionable or not. My bull-shit-meter was sounding the alarm on that site!!! The loud blaring, red flashing alarm. Something wasn't quite right.
For a site that was decrying the alleged violence of Islam, it seemed to be promoting violence against Muslims as an okay kind of thing? Strange.
Then I saw this name listed , Ayaan Hirsi Ali, whose real name is Ayaan Hirsi Magan. She the former controversial Dutch MP who lied about almost everything regarding herself. Her name, her birthdate, her citizenship, in order to get asylum. For all that lying, she gets an appointment as a fellow, to the American Enterprise Institute, a neo-con think tank.
Which really says something about the people involved.
I noticed the lack of some other prominent Islamic people, most notably Tariq Ali.
I was intent on doing some more digging. Muslims against sharia comes from mx.tennisschoolofomaha.com. So I checked that out!
Apparently Muslims Against Sharia had made some hits on another blog entitled, Dunner's and it seems some very distasteful messages were left. I like the fact the blogger chose such a great title, as it was so succinct, "Sinking to a New Low" You can read it for yourself.
A litte more homework brings this up, "The Free Thinker"
"So it was surprising to see, buried away in their Blogger profile, that one of their main “Team Members” was Atlas Shrugs (aka Pamela Geller) - the right-wing, Bushier-than-Bush blogger who only last month was calling for Islam to be banned. Had Pamela “reverted” to the one true religion?
And, sure enough she is there, I had never heard of this gal until now, but a Jewish Neo-Con Bush supporter as a blogger on a Muslim blog?? That just doesn't make sense.
Continuing from the Free thinker:
" The latest member of the team is Ted Belman of Israpundit."
Whatever their true motivations, MASh are laying themselves wide open to accusations of being a “Zionist conspiracy" -
Gee, do you think so?
There is also an interview here with the Khalim Massoud from "Muslims Against Sharia"
That said, this place leaves me with a bad impression.
