Hannity guests – As a moderate, I am delighted to be in the company of radical right wingers and still get a few points across. I am listed among 20 of Hannity guests including President George Bush (goodman in the wrong company), Carl Rove, New Gingrich (hate peddler), Ann Coulter, Bobby Jindal, Pat Buchanan (reasonable), Dick Morris (not a radical) and others. http://www.hannity.com/guests
I will be on the air with Sean Hannity and Wafa Sultan on Friday, November 26 at 5:30 PM EST. A range of topics will be discussed including Ground Zero Mosque and the upcoming Quraan Conferences on December 5 in Dallas.
Wafa Sultan is a bellyacher, instead of blaming the societal wrong doers; Wafa Sultan has chosen to blame their religion. My biggest surprise was "hate speeches were allowed to spew out from the religious places".
THE RADIO SHOW ( FRIDAY EVE 5:30 PM)
Mark Simone conducted the interview - he sort of alluded to Dr. Sultan and I to go at each other and we did.
She claimed to be native linguist of Arabic and assumed that by the virtue of it, it will give her an upper hand.
She quoted a verse from Chapter 4 about killing the infidels and she made the same dishonest representation about not sharing a few sentences before and after the subject verse. I explained to her - that we if we view the scene where I shoot the intruder, I look bad and criminal - but if you rewind 2 frames, you can see that the intruder threatened me and was about to shoot and then if you see that I treat the person kindly after wards.
She jumped on Qur’aan 4:34 where it is alleged that a man is allowed to beat the wife after warning and admonishing and if she still does not get it, beat her with a feather like object. I reminded her that it was the "men's interpretation" and men all over the world mistreat women even today but look at the usage of the word - 35 times in Qur’aan the word "Daraba" was meant for "separation" and five times " to beat". Some men chose to the 5 timer verse the thirty five times.
Prophet through Qur’aan for the first time in the history of mankind gave rights to women - to initiate marriage and divorce, to own her own business and property - and Qur’aan tells in every sentence that men and women have the same rights and that they are a catalyst to each other’s happiness, respect, dignity and life. Why would it tell to beat...? Some Men, no matter where on the earth they live, they are insecure and always find ways to power over women, we Americans are no exception either. Several among us do not want to see a woman president, how many men you personally know who would not want a woman to speak from the pulpit. Why pick on Muslim men? Indeed, there are several Muslim societies where men force women to obey - hell, that is not Islamic to begin with and what’s the point blaming the religion? Blame the men culture.
Qur’aan (Bible, Torah, Bhagvad Gita or any holy text) is like nuclear power - which is dangerous in the hands of a few, but beneficial in the hands of many in terms of electricity and everything that runs by electricity.
She was putting a childish question to determine where I stand, she asks, do you want Americans to read the Arabic version of Prophet's biography? Of course, I would prefer people to find the truth on their own and not on hearsay. Is she assuming that Americans are dumb people and do not know Arabic? Hell, she is wrong about that, we Americans have the resources to translate every darn code on the earth; we have more people who can translate anything than any other part of the world.
I ended up with the same challenge - find me the faults in Qur’aan directly and not hearsay....the full interview will be on audio available at Hannity show... the link is given in the write up.
Qur’aan conference is on 5th of December, it’s time to demystify those myths.
