Voice of Reason : Wafa Sultan
Some may ask, who is Wafa Sultan?
So let me tell you who is Dr. Wafa Sultan? but so I dont repeat myself since I have written plenty on this lady and he courage and bravery, and so that I dont sound like an old broken record,and before some accuse me of praising her for any advantage or benefit, I tell you all no I am not on her payroll,and no she is not giving me a green card , In fact Dr. Sultan can do without my praise and she does not need anyone to tickle her ego, this lady is genuine and real, and she is very sound,convincing and I can say she is the voice of reason.
How did I discover Wafa Sultan?
If I go back in time a little over 3 yrs and thats the day I discovered YT, one of the very first videos I saw was the Wafa Sultan Interview on Aljazeera and since that moment , I was impressed by this lady who was very sharp and was able to control the debate and made her opponent look like a 2 yr old, confused, clueless and most likely embarrassed.
How did Wafa Sultan change my life?
I can not deny that Dr. Sultan influenced my life and showed me things and opened my eyes to things that may have crossed my mind but I had no clue of what to call them, I realized that I shared many of her thoughts, values and ideals, the way I felt about religions, women, islam, violence and terror ...etc. At this time I realized that I can qualify to consider myself and call myself secular. I am glad that after watching her, I was able to answer so many of the questions that I was struggling to find answers for.
Was Wafa Sultan behind the positive influence?
Wafa sultan was my inspirational and motivation for me and many others as we used to be her frequent and big fans on her YT video, until one day my good friend Jim and I decided to start the ITF "Infidels Task Force" group on YT,
and now we have this web site:with 116 members and 100's if not 1000's of topics , so we owe it to dr. Sultan that we started this site.
Then I started my own blog and Wafa Sultan was present in more than one topic, I really owe so much to this lady, she taught me a lot.
How do I assess / fair Wafa Sultan today?
Yes it all started a little over 3 years ago, but it never stopped, the more I saw and learned of Wafa Sultan,the more respect and the more fond I became of this lady. her outstanding interviews,I enjoyed her interview on Al Karma tv "Daring Question" سؤال جريء program
her amazing web site,
her informative, exciting and well written book,that I enjoy reading " A God Who Hates".
Muslims and Wafa Sultan?
I can imagine the threat that someone like Wafa Sultan can pose to muslims, this lady can not go wrong, when she speaks , she has the scientific and well documented backing and evidence, again reason and logic is her specialty, well informed, polite and very eloquent speaker, you can sense that her education plays a factor in how she carries herself. Due to all these factors, now I understand the hostile behavior and those insulting words,attacks , threats and the nonsense she has to deal with in her interviews from muslim callers, and the nonsense messages and posts some muslim visitors leave on her web site.
In conclusion, now I know for sure why muslims are intimidated by this lady, they avoid her at any cost, and no one dares to have a serious debate with Dr. Sultan, as they know what the outcome will be like.
Finally Dr. Sultan , you are a very special lady because you are the voice of reason, truth and courage.
Dr. Sultan, you make us proud and we salute you.
