Dinesh D'Souza and Srdja Trifkovic were debating yesterday on an american radio show. D'Souza has recently written a book that has caused a great deal of controversy. While I haven't read the book itself from the excerpts I can conclude that, although he makes valid points on the destructive influence of the cultural left, D'Souza is amazingly ignorant about islam and his central proposition, that western conservatives join forces with traditional ordinary muslims is quite absurd.
Just how ignorant is D'Souza? Have a look at the transcript of the part of the debate over at Jihadwatch. Scroll down to the part where Trifkovic asks D'Souza in what order are the Suras in the Koran arranged.
D'Souza claims he spent 4 years studying islam. Seems to me he wasted them and would have been better off traveling around the world.
