A Think Tank with an Identity Crisis

I've decided to temporarily remove this posting. Anyone who has by some freak chance read it and disagrees with it is welcome to provide critical, neutral, supportive or even abusive comments!

But remember that Sheik/Rabbi Musa/Moses bin-Maymoun/Maimonides (the venerable dude in the photo) is watching!!

How is Mark Steyn an "anti-Semite"? Point me to comments he has made that suggest Jew hatred.

As for providing Pauline Hanson with a "platform" - you are massively deceiving your readers. She attended an open public function and asked a question during question time.

You also asked a question Irfan.

Does that mean you provided with a "platform" as well? Or were you merely the same as Hanson and [i]every other person[/i] that raised their hand and was offered the microphone.

At least Hanson was polite enough to listen to the speaker's response and not heckle halfway through it as you did.

You, like your bumchum Loewenstein are looking for evidence of something that simply isn't there.

Why don't you quote your question and Steyn's answer? It amounted to pointing out that if you represent Islam, you have the opportunity to speak out against Islamic fascists, yet you choose instead to attack Steyn. Therein lies a big problem, one which you completely ignore, and by not writing about it, are intellectually dishonest.

I don't recall heckling. I do recall having ... er ... shall we call it a "Dean Jones moment"?

I'm not quite sure the appropriateness of any reference between yourself and a professional sportsman Irfan, however by "Dean Jones Moment" are you suggesting you said something you perhaps shouldn't have?

This would be a noble mea culpa. Do explain.

I did read your comment.

Why have you removed it?

Anonymous @ 1201, I refer you to my piece to be published in today's NewMatilda.com.

Anonymous @ 157, suffice it to say that principles are important, but relationships are even more important.

Irfan, you are ill-equipped to take on fights like this. Steyn is in a league far above your own and it is symptomatic of your own hubris that you fail to realise it. Please do continue though, it makes for good sport for the onlookers.

NewMatilda.com is a pay site. Tell me if I am missing something...

As for principles versus relationships, you haven't actually said anything. Are you being deliberately vague? Or just vague. Simple question, why did you retract your article? Additionally, you haven't answered the earlier question asking on what basis you called Mark Steyn an anti-Semite.
