View From a Height
Commentary from the Mile High City
Monday, December 23, 2002
It's a litte old, but the Florida chapter of CAIR has a press release giving us all the skinny (so to speak) on Muhammed's wives. It defends him against the charge that his wives were either attractive or young, except in one case where he's accused of preceding Humbert Humbert by a few centuries. It certainly is a relief that Muhammed was hanging out with a better class of woman, at least ones old enough to buy a drink if they hadn't been Muslim. Although, to be honest, I don't know of anyone who knew of the charge, or would have cared had they known. We Americans are pretty willing to give holy men of any religion the benefit fof the doubt. But then, this:

To avoid the kind of excesses that we saw in Nigeria, both Muslims and non-Muslims need to know the traditions of the other more thoroughly. Perhaps one place to start is with the figure of Muhammad.

No, Mr. Ahmed. To avoid the, ahem, "excesses" of Nigeria, Muslims need to realize that the proper response to blasphemy is a humorous letter to the editor, not a molotov cocktail and a fatwah. Your letter to the editor wasn't particularly humorous, but at least it wasn't wrapped around primer cord when you send it, so I guess it's a step in the right direction.
