Taqiyya sunrise

In today's Ithaca Journal:

This originally appeared over a week ago in the Detroit Free Press, another Gannett newspaper, atop a brief column written by the cartoonist himself, Mike Thompson, in which he cites a report by the notably fair and balanced Muslim Public Affairs Council—no bias there, of course.

There's been a lot of analysis of King's hearings, both before they actually happened, as here and here, and afterwards, much of which concluded that the hearings turned out to be pretty weak beer but were at least a start on discussing the taboo topics of Muslims and Islam in the US—see here and here.

Related—in the realm of "things that make you go 'hmmmm'." Sort of on foreign policy but sort of not:

Civil war, he says?

Anyway, do read Mike Thompson's short column, and also the comments. One commenter remarked

Thompson, as usual, is full of hummus and hubris.

Another one of those things I wish I'd thought of.
