A Rant?

A website called Islamophobia Watch accuses AT of a "rant" (and implicitly of Islamophobia) for this article on Muhammad's use of torture, as carefully documented with reference to Islamic holy scripture.

There is no analysis, of course, merely a label flung out. James Arlandson, author of the article in question, welcomes informed debate. But it is far easier to fling baseless charges than to argue against the plain meaning of Islam's own foundational documents.
