Hamid Dabashi, the tireless apologist for Islam and slavish admirer of the late Edward Said, about whom he wrote an unforgettable “Ode to Edward Said,” has recently delivered himself of some remarks about the vast and sinister campaign being waged throughout the world against innocent Muslims. In Dabashi’s vivid and hysterical imagination, it’s a truly frightening story.
Here it is:
What is happening to Muslims around the globe? In China they are put into concentration camps, in Myanmar they are slaughtered en masse, in India they have been the targets of systematic pogroms, in Israel along with Christian Palestinians they are mowed down on a daily basis, in Europe and the United States they are subject to increasing demonisation and persecution.
