14 Minutes and Counting

Salaam 'Alaikum

Jordy Cummings at Press Action ruminates on the intellectual contradictions and ambitions of Irshad Manji in "Hey Irshad, Your Fifteen Minutes Are Up."

Justin Podur at Z-Mag gave a thorough -- and scathing -- review of Manji's book and politics last December, "A Multi-Faceted Fraud." I'm not sure, but I think MWU.com re-ran this essay or one similar, critiquing Manji's cozying up to right-wing politicians here and in Israel.

Even though the MWU goons were against the book, its funny how they used a "traditional" Muslim to do the critique. Guess they couldnt help but consult someone who knew what they were talking about.
In reality, MWU opposes Manji's pro-zionist stance but NOT her calls to "reform" Islam. That distinction needs to be made clear. I would say Manji is far more honest than the PM squad....

Salaam alaikum Dr. Maxtor,
You are right about that. They attacked her for her skewed version of Islamic history and politics but they were certainly on board to changing Islam as they see fit. The author of that article is right. She is a sad woman rebelling against her abusive father and is being paid handsomely for it. But if secularists are seeing through her lies then her fifteen mintues must be coming to a close.
