Dear Miss Kelly, I'm not entitled to defend the person of Dr. Sultan for he can do it himself. Yet, I think you should be impartial in discussing his views on the Paelstinian issue. You misunderstood the legitimate right for dfending a right cause for fanaticism. Why don't you give a word on the unjust Israeli occupation of the Palestinian land and the organized, brutal killing of men, women, and children? It seems proper to remind you with Barry Goldwater's famous quote, "I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!" This is the case with the oppressed Palestinians.


Not buying it, Talaat. Any society which straps bombs on its children, which encourages its children to blow themelves up, is doomed. I don't think I misunderstand this, I reject the notion that suicide bombing is legitimate and defensible. My criticism of Dr. Soltan is for more than his views on Palestinians, and I hope that his attempt to become an American citizen is denied.

Mrs. Kelly, Do you even speak Arabic to understand him and make such allogations? This is what we call ignorance in the US. I know Dr. Salah Soltan and I heard many of his lectures. That makes me more credible when it comes to judging and criticizing a persons thoughs. Please take the time to understand what you are accusing people. Thank you for your insight.

Muhammad, the quotes I used in my postings on Dr. Soltan were mostly taken from Soltan's own English language website. Soltan publishes his essays and advice in English and at a variety of forums, including Islam Online.

I'm not sure why you would characterize my quoting of Soltan's own words as being "ignorant."
