As we blogged here yesterday, Ezra’s radio “debate” with Syed devolved into a shouting match.
(An admiring SeraphicSingle nevertheless reminds fellow Christians that Jesus specifically forbade us calling another person “fool”; being Jewish, Ezra is under no such restrictions…)
Ezra reviews the debate, and the facts about the man he was on the air with, in a new post:
But I thought I’d mention a few things on air about Soharwardy, since we were chatting anyways. Like the fact that on one of his websites, he links, with approval, to an essay written by a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group, Yusuf al-Qaradawi. I’ve saved the page here, because Soharwardy has a tendency to delete pages that embarrass him. Qaradawi is banned from many western countries, including the U.K., because of his exhortations to murder Jews. He’s Soharwardy’s hero.
The debate degenerated pretty quickly. That’s the second time Soharwardy and I have spoken; the first was the day the cartoons rolled off the press back in 2006. He didn’t like how that debate went, either, and promptly asked the Calgary police to arrest me. They didn’t, so he filed his human rights complaint. I have no idea what he’s going to do now, after yesterday’s brutal debate.
But he did give me a warning: I’ll “soon pay”, he shouted, with half of Toronto as his witness, his voice rising to a girlish trill.
Normally, I’d laugh at that old fart. But, given that two of Soharwardy’s critics at his mosque have been violently attacked, maybe I should take Soharwardy’s threat seriously. What did he mean by I’ll “soon pay”?
Don’t miss the update at the very bottom of his post.
Here’s an idea: after we scrap Section 13.1, can we go after Section 27 of the Charter?
