on Christianity. The answer is - no. (I’m referring to Chivers’ ‘Please be quiet, Richard Dawkins, I'm begging, as a fan’ in The Telegraph.)
I’ve heard that argument countless times before. In fact the point that critics of Islam or Muslims ‘generalise’ about these things can be found in almost every article in the Islamophiliac literature. More relevantly, it is itself a generalisation about all the critics of Islam and/or Muslims! Consequently, yes, that’s right, most of these Muslim/Islam-friendly articles contain many (positive of course!) generalisations about Islam and Muslims. And they also contain many generalisations about the critics of Islam (they are all ‘fascists’ and/or ‘racists’)! Tom Chivers article on Dawkins displays that hypocrisy about generalisations perfectly.
