Arab-American Woman Blasts Islamist Cleric On al-Jazeera TV

Dr. Wafa Sultan is an Arab-American psychologist. On February 21 she confronted a radical Islamist cleric on al-Jazeera television. When I say confronted, I mean she bitch-slapped him. In the process Dr. Sultan demolished the idea of a "clash of civilizations" consigning radical Islam to the middle ages. She also mentioned that even after the Holocaust "no Jews blew themselves up in German restaurants".

Watch the video here. The clip is subtitled in English, but listen with the sound on anyway to get the full effect of how Wafa dominated the conversation.

The clash we are witnessing around the world is not a clash of religions or a clash of civilizations, It is a clash between two opposites, between two eras. It is a clash between a mentality that belongs to the Middle Ages and another mentality that belongs to the 21st century.
I have to believe that al-Jazeera regretted booking this woman.

Update: Muhammed and cartoons left a link to Dr. Sultan's discussion in a comment yesterday as well. Unfortunately, I didn't see the comment until tonight.
