Professor Mona Siddiqui
You can always rely on the BBC’s “Thought for the Day” slot to be made available for Mona Siddiqui, that most erudite and enlightened Professor of Islamic Studies and Public Understanding. Mona was on this morning informingg us that Christians have been in the Middle East for a longtime and in some cases have been in places before Muslims. She seemed to forget that Jews have been there even longer…in fact she forgot to mentionthem at all…remarkable in a ‘Thought for the Day’ about the Middle East andreligion! Still, I am sure Mona will be back again very shortly to share more of her wisdom with the BBC nation.

    Actually Christians have been in most parts of the middle east a damned sight longer than any muslim.

    Of course this bigot cannot mention her hated enemies the Jews, the thin mask of reason and understanding she hides behind would slip and we would see the racist nasty islamist bigot hiding underneath.

    No thanks Mona, we see the evidence all around us about your religion, you cannnot polish a turd and you cannot make it smell of roses no matter how hard you try. Maybe Mona would be better employed fighting for the rights of muslim women and condemning stabbings/beatings/servitude/rape/child molesting/forced marriage/stoning women to death? Yeah didnt think that Mona would be up for doing that.

    Actually, in every place Christians were there before Muslims. Almost all of what is sometimes called the Arab East was part of the Christian, Byzantine, Roman Empire. There were remnants of other religions of which Judaism was probably most significant because Christianity let it exist as ‘evidence’ of the divinity of Jesus.
