Dr. Sultan is an amazing woman and I hope these threats do not materialize.



I started sending my friends the MEMRI link of Wafa Sultan in February. I entitled the emails, "The World's Bravest Woman."

Ain't that the truth.

I recall responding to something SMG wrote around the same time, essentially writing that it was seeming impossible to stop the information war against Bush (and by extension, Western Freedom).

Well, maybe a miracle will happen. And maybe that miracle is Wafa Sultan.

Here's hoping.


Yeah, but do you think she'll win a PULITIZER?
I missed this yesterday - speaks for itself - lot of laughs!

"[Dr. Ibrahim al-Khouli] said there was no point in rebuking or debating her, because she had blasphemed against Islam, the Prophet Muhammad and the Koran.

That's the beauty of heresy, isn't it? Dr. al-K succinctly demystifies its enduring appeal.


wow...you go girl

Wafa for Pulitzer!!

JM Hanes


Once again, we note the Pulitzer's glaring omission of Claudia Rossett for investigative kudos, or beat reporting, or public service, international, explanatory. It would require acknowledging the U.N. brontosaurus in the middle of the room, of course.


How about mounting a bloggers' Pulitzer Challenge?

There's Claudia, and Wafa per windandsea, Byron York on Plamegate?, Stephan Hayes on Saddamgate, Mark Steyn for commentary. I suspect we could even come up with some non-denominational nominations for the odd lefty here and there.

And how about merit-based nominations for official MSM paper of record? The underrated Chicago Trib might make an excellent, democratically established, replacement for the self-appointed NYTimes.


You named all my top picks JM--


Excellent picks JMH>
All deserving of awards.
What a magnificent woman is Wafa Sultan.
On Fox News Report: teacher who compared Bush Administration to Nazi Germany is discussed along with young man who taped him. Of course Neal is in favor of the teacher; who by the way has been reinstated. The young man will be transferring to a new school.


As JMH says, heresy is soooo easy. One doesn't have to think! Ask Sandy O'Conner about Delay and Cornyn. ;)

Thank goodness, we've identified another Arab Congress can't trust.


Pulitzer Prize
NATIONAL nominee:

The New York Times (NSA wiretapping revelations)

Two Questions:
1)In addition to the reporters, will the editor and publisher also get a copy of the prize to keep them company in Levanworth?

2) (Wishful thinking) Can the Pulizer Committee be brought up on charges for aiding and abeting after the fact of the crime? Or can we just go back to Duranty?

the Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon Her

Lovers of Islam Unite! - Pancakes for Mohammed, peace be upon Her

Keep your calendars open for Sunday, March 18th, at 11 AM for the first annual Pancakes for Mohammed, peace be upon Her, Sunday Pancake Fundraiser at Dennys. This is a great way to raise money for our Islam saving cause while eating great pancakes. And remember, “Hold the sausage please!”

For those of us who are trying to convince our Muslim brothers and sisters about the true gender of the Prophet, peace be upon Her, come out and speak up and bring a few shekels to donate. Also, be sure and bring your best drawing of the Prophet, peace be upon Her. I propose that each group vote on the best depiction of the Prophet, peace be upon Her and pay for the winning artist to eat for free.

Now remember, drawing the Prophet with a bomb on Her head has already been done, so please, choose something else.


Curious George

It's really sad what deception the Muslim leaders are living under. I wish that the could hear how logical what she has to say really is!


In 10 years, Hollywood will make a movie about this woman (starring Sandra Bullock) and call itself brave for bringing her to the world's attention.
When he receives his award for best supporting actor for the role of Dr. Ibrahim al-Khouli, Tim Robbins will first thank the makeup department, and then will castigate the west for making muslims men feel so impotent they have no choice but to lash out against all that criticize Islam.

In 15 years, his speech will be memorialized in the Oscar telecast's montage saluting how Hollywood changed the World.


Beautiful! MayBee, beautiful!


Jeez, now NOW can blame all those nasty rapes, honor killings and daily physical abuse of muslim women on George Bush.

If we would just leave Afghanistan and Iraq to them, all those Islamists wouldn't be forced, forced, forced to take out their rage on the womenfolk.


IHP pancakes for Muhammed....hold the sausage....guffaw...I thought FNL was last night.

Jim K.

From the Times:
Dr. Sultan bitterly criticized the Muslim clerics, holy warriors and political leaders who she believes have distorted the teachings of Muhammad and the Koran for 14 centuries.

As far as I could tell (from watching the entire video on MEMRI), she believes no such thing. She is no longer a Muslim, and nowhere in the interview does she suggest that there are some benign teachings that have been distorted. This seems to be a fabrication by the reporter to fit her views into the NY Times's way of thinking--that the fanatics have a distorted view of Islam, as opposed to actually representing Islam. Dr. Sultan makes no distinction between the Islam of the fanatics and some other more benign version.


Oh, Jim K., this may get interesting. I lent my copy of 'Satanic Verses' out several years ago and haven't seen it since, to my regret, and astonishment, for I usually don't regret the losses.

"In 10 years, Hollywood will make a movie about this woman (starring Sandra Bullock) and call itself brave for bringing her to the world's attention."

Except that the character will be a humanities professor at NYU or Berkeley and the Muslims will be Baptist neoNazi's out of Texas.

JM Hanes

No doubt!


First, it was Oriana Fallaci.

Then Irshad Manji.

Now, it's Wafa Sultan.

Three brave women. Three real heroines.
