Book Cover
Published by Rupert Murdoch



Check out this revealing nugget at the end of Todd Gitlin's take on Cordoba Initiative leader Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's book Whats Right with Islam is Whats Right with America
http://www.tnr.com/blog/foreign-policy/77176/ground-zer... (my emphasis):

The book closes with an appendix containing a fatwa issued by five Muslim clerics on September 27, 2001, at the request of the most senior Muslim chaplain in the American armed forces. Ending his book with a fatwa! Yes! Cunningly, its a Fatwa Permitting U. S. Muslim Military Personnel to Participate in Afghanistan War Effort.

Whats Right with Islam, by the way, was published by HarperSanFrancisco, which last I looked is owned by Rupert Murdoch.


In 1989, Collins was bought by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, and the publisher was combined with Harper & Row which NewsCorp had acquired two years earlier.

5. I always thought they CREATED their own outrages
just like when they were harping on teen sex on TV, when it was Fox's entertainment channels that had the most teen sex on their shows...I even suspect that Glee was developed with outrage in mind...too bad for them it turned out to be mighty popular...
