People in the US always complain about Muslim clerics: they think that they (Muslim clerics) are all fans of Bin Ladin. Not true. (Now I will never stand up for clerics of any religion: and agree with Robespierre that "clerics are to virtue what charlatons are to medicine" but facts are stubborn things, as somebody once said. I listened today to the latest audio-tape by Abu Mus`ab Az-Zarqawi: and he viciously railed against Muslim clerics for not supporting his cause. Zarqawi is so disgustingly sexist and misogynist (in addition to his other violent prejudices) that he calls men "women" as an insult. He was mocking Muslim clerics as "women." This audio-tape was odd: it had background chanting in the beginning. I do not know what that means. I notice that Al-Qa`idah and Zarqawi propaganda now refer to the enemy as Zion-Crusaders.
