The toady’s blindness

Piers Akerman in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph:

“…though the Koran does contain some verses of great poetry on tolerance and respect, it also contains a plethora of extremely virulent exhortatory suras condemning nonbelievers, apostates, Christians and Jews, to violent deaths and unending misery in the hereafter.”

All those sections in the Bible about death, stonings, murder and incest clearly read like a children’s fairy tale. No wonder Akerman is Howard’s favourite commentator/toady. ABC TV’s Insiders calls him a “highly experienced journalist and a columnist.” Notice the omission of respect. Why the hell is he on that show again? Yet another tortuous bow to “balance.”
