Hitchens On The Mealy-Mouthed Enablers

Via Hot Air’s story on all this 9/11 hullaballo being due to “a misunderstanding”, his latest piece in Slate

I had come here to defend atheism and secularism in general but also to have a debate with Tariq Ramadan, an Islamist academic domiciled in Geneva, who has emerged as the most sinuous and dexterous of the “interpreters” of Muslim fundamentalism to the West. He eventually declined our original debate, but there was nothing to stop me from attending his event and trying to re-stage our canceled confrontation from the floor.

After a few pointed questions we get to hear this slithery snake speak in the platitudes that the press loves. As Hitchens says, “Only six years on, and already the soft mainstreaming of Islamic imperialism is under way.”
Sadly, it started on September 12th, 2001.

    As dangerous as overt terrorists such as al-qaeda and hamas are, snake-oil hucksters like Tariq Ramadan are the truly insidious threat.
