Sadly, "Islam and Japan" failed "the sniff test."
Even the anti-Islamic website, "Bare Naked Islam" gives "Islam and Japan" Four Pinocchios.
But before you read Bare Naked Islam's account, check out Wikipedia's review of the same topic.
The anti-epistemology of "The Right" is breathtakingly brazen.
Consider these peculiar beliefs: that deliberate falsehood is a virtue; and that relentless mendacity is essential for the health of democracy.
