Thanks to TB for this Monday morning gem.
I like Condell’s acerbic wit and his frankness, though as our readers know, I don’t always agree with his views…

Here is one occasion in which we see the same problem in the same light. I mean the current form of Islam – creeping, creepy Wahhabism flowing out of the coffers of Saudi Arabia’s petroleum reserves.
Money not only talks, but in this case it whinges and whines and weeps all the way to court. It’s past due time to grow up, but then how would all the bombers and beheaders and lawyers who defend them manage to make a living?
Mr. Condell asserts that Islam is not a victim. He dares to offend the skinless ones, who look for insults and slurs under every rock. An example of this whiny phenomenon is Cat Stevens, who makes a good living suing those who dare to offend his delicate sensibilities.
Mr. Stevens could take a leaf from Cassius Clay’s book. Cassius-turned-Muhammad never sued anyone, and Lord knows he got lots of hits for his conversion. But then again, Mr. Stevens is not a mere pugilist. No indeed. Jusuf is a sensitive artist and one must tread carefully lest he be offended.
Life is difficult indeed without a skin.
