Reporting on Tunisian Muslims resenting the more "hardline" "Salafists" trying to horn in on Tunisia's freshly minted revolutionary state, Marisol (editor of Jihad Watch) quotes what would seem to be, from her perspective, an emblematic exchange between one of the supposedly milder, more modern Muslims ostensibly existing in sufficient numbers in Tunisia to amount to a hill of beans, and the reaction of this supposedly modern Muslim to a supposedly more retrograde Muslim:
"The grocer told me the other day, 'I don't like your jeans,'" said Leila Katech, a retired anaesthesiologist. "I told him I didn't like his beard."
And, after adding that bold emphasis, Marisol, sporting her hopefully Wildersianist spectacles, editorializes smartly:
What Marisol fails to note, however, in her warmly enthusiastic embrace of this strangely schizophrenic (retired) anaesthesiologist, is the far more important agreement behind the ostensible, distracting disagreement reported in this exchange between the Moderate Muslim and the Extremist Muslim:
They both like Muhammad.
Kind of tempers the "outstanding" part, doesn't it? Kind of puts the blue jeans in their proper perspective, doesn't it?
