Spencer asked Obeidallah to answer several questions as a prelude to an interview. Obeidallah did not answer them. The best of these is item number 1, in which Spencer asks:
True or false: No comedy show, no matter how clever or winning, is going to eradicate the suspicion that many Americans have of Muslims. This is because Americans are concerned about Islam not because of the work of greasy Islamophobes, but because of Naser Abdo, the would-be second Fort Hood jihad mass murderer; and Khalid Aldawsari, the would-be jihad mass murderer in Lubbock, Texas; and Muhammad Hussain, the would-be jihad bomber in Baltimore; and Mohamed Mohamud, the would-be jihad bomber in Portland; and Faisal Shahzad, the would-be Times Square jihad mass-murderer; and Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, the Arkansas military recruiting station jihad murderer; and Naveed Haq, the jihad mass murderer at the Jewish Community Center in Seattle; and Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar, the would-be jihad mass murderer in Chapel Hill, North Carolina; Ahmed Ferhani and Mohamed Mamdouh, who hatched a jihad plot to blow up a Manhattan synagogue; and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the would-be Christmas airplane jihad bomber; and many others like them who have plotted and/or committed mass murder in the name of Islam and motivated by its texts and teachings -- all in the U.S. in the last couple of years.And this doesn't even mention Major Nidal Hassan, who killed 13 people at Fort Hood in Texas a couple of years ago, acting on behalf of his religion -- Islam.
Read the whole thing here. By the way, I am currently reading Spencer's book "The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran." It is an informative book on how the Koran was created and what it contains. You can read the Koran itself, but this is a difficult task, since the Koran is arranged in a chaotic, non-sequential manner, repeats itself many times, and often provides little or no context for its subject matter. (You must refer to the Hadith to obtain the context and supporting facts, and Spencer quotes from the Hadith when necessary to remove ambiguity.)
