Ilana Mercer has an excellent writeup about Wafa Sultan and how the media has reacted to her. World Net Daily - "Wafa wows the West (but not Muslims and media") or at Ilana's site.
As expected, the MediaDhimmis we love to hate and to mock came out with six guns blazing this upstart. Duck Wafa! It's not only the Islamists you have to worry about, the dhimmis are after you as well. At least their bullets come only out of their mouths unlike their Muslim 'allies.'
If this was insufficiently forthright, an earlier Al-Jazeera interview certainly was not:
In our countries, religion is the sole source of education, and is the only spring from which that terrorist drank until his thirst was quenched. He was not born a terrorist, and did not become a terrorist overnight. Islamic teachings played a role in weaving his ideological fabric, thread by thread, and did not allow other sources – I am referring to scientific sources – to play a role. It was these teachings that distorted this terrorist and killed his humanity. It was not [the terrorist] who distorted the religious teachings and misunderstood them, as some ignorant people claim. [Emphasis added].
Still, "ignorant people" will be ignorant. The New York Times modified what Sultan had said. Duly, Mahdi John M. Broder "reported" that "Dr. Sultan bitterly criticized the Muslim clerics, holy warriors and political leaders who she believes have distorted the teachings of Muhammad and the Quran for 14 centuries" [Emphasis added].
Sultan said nothing of the sort. Not a murmur did she utter about a noble religion that had been kidnapped by crazies.
The Los Angeles Times' Islamic advocate, Teresa Watanabe, got Sultan's message loud and clear: "Islam is fatally flawed." To which the correspondent responded by deriding the psychiatrist: Sultan was no longer a Muslim, had "never been connected with progressive Islamic groups and does not know the writings of Islam's most respected voices of reform," she carped.
The little woman was out of line – Sultan had failed to defer to authority, and had offered up her own independent analysis instead. And she was unaffiliated with any Muslim organization. In short, an individualist who swims against the current. Where is a burka when you need one!
It's a great article looking at how the dhimmis and TaqiyyaMasters are handling Ms. Sultan.
