#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.

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