Since I have never, ever, in my life said anything even implying that  
islam is in any way more objectionable, or more to be feared, than  
christianity or judaism, the accusation of "Islamophobia" is just  
another insult, nothing more.

and Andrew Pollak, who cheers when his Syrian cohorts yell allahu  
akbar (and who of course was capable of no response to my criticism of  
his one-liner endorsing Seymour's slander of the victims) instructed  

"Moderator, do your thing, call an end to it."

No it ain't. A dialogue has gone on long enough only when every point  
raised has been actually argued. Who has raised an argument that  
muslims are a race? or that "racism" is a term with any applicability  
to people who neither are a race nor are looked on by anybody as such?
Who has actually defended the proposition that there is ever anything  
wrong about ridiculing the fetish figures of a religion? Who has  
offered any justification for the use of slanderous language against  
the victims of a monstrous crime? Only those unable to defend their  
words cry, like an Anytus, for "an end to it."
