Good stuff!I notice they had some paper and a marker in front of you. Did they get you to draw something?
I definitely drew something and I hope to do a show and tell about it one day. And thanks, I had a great time on the show, there are some great people involved in it.
You made a couple of completely egregious statements on the show:1. Michael Loftus brings up the extremism in the Old Testament and you dismiss it, even though for every extreme verse you get in the Qur'an one could probably give you four that are worse in the Old testament.2. You also say that there is nothing in the religion to stay the hand of someone who wants to go off on Jihad. That's just wrong. The Qur'an has plenty of verses that tell the warrior not to exceed limits. Also, the interpretation of Jihad through the centuries has varied with time and place. Initially it was violent, and it resumed its violent bent as an anti-colonial sentiment. For many of the intervening years Muslims coexisted with other religions in The Middle East and a more pacifist and spiritual interpretation of Jihad was developed.
I won't bother unpacking your bs, Sajid, but I'm glad you suffered through my interview.
I do not want to sound paternalistic with this, but as a fellow American you make me proud. Thank you.
You make me proud as a fellow American. Thanks for being brave right when our society needs artists to be brave.
Thank you, Darrell, I particularly appreciate the way you put it.
