|Response To Mr. El-Fakhri's Article|
I tried to read the recent article by Mr. Elfakhri and I found a compulsion to respond again.
To be honest I could not go through the whole article because it was very difficult to follow its logic. However, I will focus my response on three points that were very clear to me.
The first point is the accusation of Mr. Hakim being a part of a conspiracy against Islam organized by (Ghaddafi, Zionists, America,.....). In my opinion, that does not change the validity of the points that Mr. Hakim raised a bet. A hole in a building is a hole, no matter, what are the intentions or who is the person that notified us about this defect in the building.
The second point was the conclusion that Mr. Hakim is kafer (duh). Does that make him a bad person or does that invalidate anything he says?. The answer is neither. To the contrary, I praise Mr. Hakim for being honest with him self and for his courage in questioning his faith when it did not feel right to him. Whether he is right or wrong is another point.
The third point is the conclusion that writing under a fake name is a sign of weakness. I think that writing under the real name will be a sign of stupidity. Knowing that there are dangerous irrational people out there makes it unwise to right under one’s real name. I know that I wouldn't.
