(She gone die...)
No, this is not an Islam blog, but they got so much drama going on that I can't help it.
Islam has been busy in March. The NY Times had a three piece series about an imam in Brooklyn and his juggling act between Islamic tradition and American 'liberalism.'
Not to mention the two year anniversary of the Madrid bombings.
But what really got me excited was Dr. Wafi Sultan's display of hatred on Al-Jazeera (video here) that impressed even an old school hater such as myself.
She seems to have the type of self-hate for her old Muslim buddies that can only come from a nightmare experience in youth. The type of intra-race hatred that fuels Ward Connerly, Clarence Thomas and the legendary race traitors of yore.
See if her bad Muslim experiences earn her a turncoat card.
When she was in medical school the Gunmen of the Muslim Brotherhood burst into a classroom at the university and killed her professor as she watched.
"They shot hundreds of bullets into him, shouting, 'God is great!' " she said. "At that point, I lost my trust in their god and began to question all our teachings. It was the turning point of my life, and it has led me to this present point. I had to leave. I had to look for another god."
In my book, that's good enough to turn against your own ethnic group.
After that she bounced to America and became a good old secular Californian academic elitist where she emerged as an outspoken critic of Islam. When her essays caught the eye of Al-Jazeera she was brought on for a live debate that got the Muslim world fuming.
During the interview she dropped such old-school truths as,
"The Jews have come from the tragedy and forced the world to respect them, with their knowledge, not with their terror; with their work, not with their crying and yelling."
She went on, "We have not seen a single Jew blow himself up in a German restaurant. We have not seen a single Jew destroy a church. We have not seen a single Jew protest by killing people."Blacks often compare the Jewish recovery from the Holocaust with the black recovery from the slave trade.
While you could easily write a thesis paper on the details and reality of that statement, I believe it to be a worthy comparison.
She has already received such charming notes as, "If someone were to kill you, it would be me."
She is the gulliest and most suicidal Muslim woman since Ayaan Hirsi Ali. And that chick is hood.
Dr. Wafi Sultan, for your real-in-the-field brand of suicidal venting, courage to speak out and (metaphorical) bomb dropping, you are the Snitch of the Week.
