#3 ¬'I was calling Islamic BARBARIANS barbarians¬', adding: ¬'By ¬"Islamic barbarians¬" I mean those Muslims who are also barbarians. I do not of course mean all Muslims.¬'
What about Muslims who are barbarians, say, only on Fridays? Are old folk, who are burning books in London to keep warm, barbarians? Are people who destroy particular pages of a religious manuscript for socio-political reasons (like Ian McKellan) barbarians? Can the good Oxford Professor explain that in a tweet?
Gee, this is fun.

#4 Apparently the locals had taken the manuscripts and hidden them a year ago, so the destruction wasn't snything like what was originally claimed.
It doesn't make the attempt any less barbarous, though.

#5 Gee, this is fun.
Making fun of a self identified "serious person" like dawkins is harder on him than a steel toed kick in the nuts.
Do they still call themselves "brights?"

#10 I'd like to see a coarser grade of sandpaper applied to them, gorb.
