276. Ah, so pointing out that you admire a blatant Islamophobe is 'deflecting'?
Well, here's some more for you to get yr head around:

Barry Rubin is most assuredly an Islamophobe, and does indeed subscribe to Eurabia and is against Muslim immigration. This was pointed out to you in another thread a few months ago, and here's the post:

And in a later thread you appear to be grudgingly acknowledging that he is an Islamophobe, when you claim not to be interested in talk about Eurabia and other bigoted stuff about Muslims and that you don't read him for his views on Muslims, but for his views on I/P.

Y'know, I'd find it just as disturbing if someone was admiring a writer of something antisemitic and then went on to say they weren't interested in their views on antisemitism, but just read them for their views on the I/P conflict. Not interested usually translates as 'I just don't care about that form of bigotry and likely agree with the bigoted stuff or think claims of bigotry are being overblown blah blah.' That's been my experience when it comes to forms of bigotry like sexism, racism, bigotry against gays, etc.

What's clear is that you set a very low bar when it comes to labelling something bigoted when it comes to antisemitism (eg yr claim only today that boycotting Israel is antisemitic), yet raise the bar to such incredibly high levels when it comes to bigotry against Muslims that only the most extreme stuff that's akin to the crudeness of Der Strmer can ever hope to get over the bar.

Heh, I'm not into stinky anything and tend to veer away. When it comes to the group, group, movement you listed, as it so clearly upsets you that anyone dare disagree on yr vitriolic and rage-filled views on them, I'm considering going and getting myself membership cards to all of them and scanning them for you to get really worked up about! ;)
