White also claims that Jews, Christians, and Muslims would all agree that idolaters are filthy in God’s sight, and shows no awareness of the fact that the idea that unbelievers are unclean is a live concept among some Muslims, notably Shi’ites. The renowned Ayatollah Sistani classifies unbelievers as unclean, along with pigs, dogs, dead bodies, etc. What Jews or Christians do that?...
It’s ironic: White, in this lengthy video, scolds people for supposedly not being fair to Qadhi, falsely claims that my intention was to portray Qadhi’s words inaccurately, and self-righteously admonishes Christians that they have to be fair to Muslims even in disagreement. Then he sits by sympathetically as Qadhi lies about Pamela Geller and me, as well as about his own words. I wrote White about this several months ago; he responded contemptuously and refused to correct the record.In light of White’s manifest credulity in the face of Qadhi’s distortions and outright lies, it is no surprise that he is led around by the nose in Olive Branch, Mississippi. White praises himself, saying that Muslims have come up to him and thanked him for attempting to portray their faith accurately...
Whoever White has in mind as these nefarious forces (and I think I know, and I think you do, too), they are absolutely right: White is a Useful Idiot par excellence, in his credulity, naivete, and ignorance of Islamic theology, law and history allowing himself to be used by the deceptive jihadist Qadhi. I am all for genuine dscussion between Christians and Muslims, but that means that the Christians are informed participants, not gullible fools having their pockets picked by jihadist sharpies. James White is a living, walking object lesson in the dangers of Muslim/Christian “dialogue” when pursued by uninformed and naive Christians, and particularly when pursued by uninformed and naive Christians with a fatuous confidence in their own knowledge and righteousness.
