Ten years back, even the United Nations Human Development Program was happy to sound off like an incendiary Dawkins Tweet: Its famous 2002 report blandly noted that more books are translated by Spain in a single year than have been translated into Arabic in the last thousand years.

They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.

Name one.

Good afternoon to you both.

Didn't Mr. Steyn say that we could post his articles in the entirety? Did it change for some reason?

Then again, it was a long time ago, and I could have CRS syndrome.

Indeed, they are, to one degree or another, members of the same secular liberal media elite as Professor Dawkins. Yet all felt that, unlike Dawkins’s routine jeers at Christians, his Tweet had gone too far.

Some bizarre pathology in evidence here. The closest psychological phenomenon which I can compare it with would be the Stockholm Syndrome effect. The ROP is so far in the head of Leftys they hold them virtually captive. In response the poor saps have cultivated a demented, quasi affinity for their imagined masters. Weird stuff, and they're probably beyond redemption. We've all heard that leftists suffer from mental illness and here it is in the wild for all to view.

Dawkins must be in awe at their irrationality.

Want to make the muzzies even madder? Tell them that the Jews, a tiny people almost wiped out 70 years ago, have amassed at least 170 nobel prizes to their 10!

The western liberal's stubborn deference to a barbaric religion - really a strict social structure - is puzzling but the always-insightful Mark Steyn seems to have figured it out in his the article in The National Post. Basically, atheist leftists seem to believe that, as Winston Churchill once defined an appeaser 'One who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last'. In a Muslim-dominated society, atheists, gays, feminists and other stalwarts of the left would be the very first to find themselves headless. So much for their alleged intellectual prowess.

author Caitlin Moran sneered, “It’s time someone turned Richard Dawkins off and then on again. Something’s gone weird.”

"He's criticizing someone other than Christians. We can't have that."

Shows that liberals worship a violent death cult, and hate a peaceful religion.

Funny and spot-on writing by Steyn again. But for those

who haven’t the time to read the article, I offer a summary:

Moslems, they’re stupid.

I’m not a fan of Dawkins’ writing, nor the late Christopher Hitchens for that matter, but they both should be defended for their writing as much as Mark Steyn, and Mark seems to agree. (Besides, Hitchens had a big plus going for him: He couldn’t stand the Royals.)

Steyn is a truly great man.

As always, Steyn is BRILLIANT.

But may I be the first (female) FReeper to add to the thread...

TTIWWP.

I’ll await the photographic onslaught.
