The Naked Truth About John Kerry
Check out this great quote from Yousuf al-Qaradhawi, the well-known Sunni Muslim scholar who hosts his own program on al-Jazeera TV. I love his notion that Kerry lost the presidential election because he was supported by "homosexuals and nudists." Where on earth did al-Qaradhawi get the idea that nudists are a voting bloc in the United States?!
Of course, it's fun to chuckle about the goofiness of those wacky furriners when they try to opine about America. But it's also a reminder that many of the ideas we have about Islamic culture and politics are probably equally ridiculous. And unfortunately our government is trying to enforce their ill-informed ideas using tanks and bombs.
