  3. I hope you’ll consider the opinions expressed in the following pieces about Manji:
    False Prophets – Brain Whitaker: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2006/jun/05/nativemisinformants?CMP=twt_gu
    Self-Hating Muslim Irshad Manji’s WTF Tweet of the Day – Loonwatch: http://www.loonwatch.com/2011/08/self-hating-muslim-irshad-manjis-wtf-tweet-of-the-day/
    Irshad Manji’s Trip to Israel – Linda Belanger: http://www.canpalnet-ottawa.org/belanger3.html

    I’m a long-standing vocal friend of LGBTQ Muslims, but not a fan of Manji at all. She’s great with the media, but her books are badly researched and warped towards an assimilationist liberal world view that makes me wonder why she just doesn’t go and have her skin bleached, change her name to Beryl, and have done with it. Few Muslims of any wit take much notice of her as far as I can tell. Rand Report reformist. Yuk!
