On the one hand ...

... and on the other: Vetting Tariq Ramadan.

As far as Ramadan's being "ambiguous" regarding the stoning of adulteresses, in the debate with Sarkozy, he refused to condemn the practice, but did call for a "moratorium" so that Muslims could debate the matter. Would have been nice -- and far less ambiguous -- if he had let on what his position in such a debate would be. According to Bruce Bawer's Surrender, Caroline Fourest's Frere Tariq, uses Ramadan's own words to demonstrate that he is "a habitual practitioner of the Islamic art of taqiyya - whoch essentially means saying one thing in Arabic and another thing in English or French."
