Got yr message. I am finding it
difficult to get the interest of our newsdesk on this story at this stage. But
will try. You must tell me which part of
you are from, and how you ended up in the States. I am interested in your life
Also, your age and family
background would be good. What do you do for a living?
Are you an atheist at the moment, or have you converted to another faith?
These are personal information and I see no relevance for
them. I am entitled to life. There are a lot of people who love to cut my throat
so they can have unlimited sex in paradise. Here are a couple of those stupid paradise
I can tell you however, that I am a secular humanist and do
not believe in any religion. I believe in the Golden Rule and I think that
suffices as the inner compass for enlightened humans. Nonetheless I am not
against religion. Religion is described as a crutch. I say, let those who need
the crutch, have it. Why should I take it away from them? Of course some
religions are more detrimental than others, but as long as they do not teach
their followers to kill people so they can go to paradise, I donít give a damn
As for God, I do not believe in a seeing, thinking deity
that interferes in human affairs, answers prayers and sends messengers. I find
the whole notion silly and absurd. Nonetheless I believe in a Single Principle
underlying the world of being. This principle is not a being; it is a non being
which is the mother of all beings. You can say I believe in the same God that
Spinoza, Einstein and Confucius believed. There is a law that governs this
universe but there is no such thing as a lawmaker. Philosophically my thinking
is akin to Daoism and even Buddhism. However, I am a prophet unto my own and
follow no one but my own inner compass.
In yr writing, I sense a hatred of
Islam that some would say is deeply racist, and has its basis in some paranoia
that Islam is going to take over. It's like the classic fear of foreigners
taking over - why?
You are absolutely right. I despise Islam for the same
reason I despise Nazism, fascism, racism, bigotry, misogyny, dictatorship,
discrimination, tyranny and other social ills. It is not wrong or racist to hate
something abhorrent. In fact it is wrong to tolerate it. I consider Islam the
most dangerous threat to peace. I foresee that if Muslims do not come to their
senses and leave this insanity the apocalypses will unfold and billions of
people will perish. How can you not hate such insanity? Of course my hatred of
Islam is justifiable and very rational. You canít call it Islamophobia or
paranoia because I know Islam and I invite any Muslim to refute what I say.
Phobia and paranoia are based on ignorance and unreasonable fear. What part of
what I say is unreasonable? When Nazism was on the rise, many wiser people
sensed the danger and warned others while the foolhardy remained confident that
nothing bad is going to happen and argued that Nazis are also humans. They accused these people of being paranoid.
They were wrong. Nazis were not humans. They were monsters. 50 to 60 million
people perished because these gullible "do-gooders" did not want to
face the ugly truth. We are facing a worse enemy today. You
can of course argue that I am wrong. If so prove it!
I have a challenge for you. Organize a written debate
between me and any Muslim scholar that you wish to invite or even a panel of
them and publish the result. I will adhere to any format you suggest, short of
undermining my safety. I bet this would be of much interest to your readers and
perhaps will answer many of your own questions. If I am defeated, that would be
the end of me and my site. Youíll get all the credit for clearing the air and
shutting down a site that has created so much controversy worldwide.
If I win, then perhaps it is time that the world starts listening and does
something to prevent the impending disaster.
If a story was to go ahead, I
would need to contact you by phone and chat to you. We would also need a picture
of you, which we would get a photographer to take of you.
You canít be serious!
In the meantime, through yr
extensive contacts in the Islamic world, are there any story-ideas you have that
have a British angle? Let me know. Do you have anything new on the
Please be as succinct as possible
in yr response.

No dear Mr. Taher, I can't
tell you anything about the London bombers. All I can tell you is why they did
it, what motivates young Muslims to commit these dastardly acts and how to
prevent these from happening.
