I apologize for being slow on comments and on emails. For those who don’t know, I am an Islamicist (not and Islamist). So when things like the London bombings happen, I spend a lot of time going around and giving talks, writing briefing papers, and responding to the media. Most of what you get here are my first thoughts, and your feedback remains invaluable. I hope to catch up with most of the comments today and tomorrow.
Woo-hoo! It’s official, islamicate is a banned site. We are not reachable in Qatar. We’re officially censored. Mark of honor. Need a badge to put on the site.
Robert Reich has an interesting column in the American Prospect about four more years of a Bush presidency. I think he’s being a bit alarmist, but at the same time I don’t think he’s exaggerating. I wonder if this is one of those articles that will be read by Bush supporters as a promise of what Bush will deliver, so they go out and vote for him.
