Hussein Ibish: “We Should Disagree Respectfully”

[Ikhras Note: The following does not exhaust the many examples of Hussein Ibishdisagreeing respectfully” with Arab-Americans that do not share his political views. Readers are welcomed to submit more examples of Ibish’s past “polite, calm & reasoned conversations” or the ones he will inevitably be having in the future for continuous updating.]

Ibish on Columbia University Professor Joseph Massad

“A fool and crackpot…totally ridiculous…Our leading crackpot…he is more determined than ever to prove that he is not only a complete crackpot, but probably the leading crackpot in the entire Arab-American community (which is unquestionably a very tall order indeed)…unhinged venom…I think Joseph Massad should be a regular guest on the Glenn Beck show. Crackpot to crackpot, they would get along famously, since they have so much in common…a stranger to reason…Crazy Joseph Massad re-emerges… Yes. I wrote a piece about him about 4 years ago called “our biggest [Arab American] crackpot” & so he is: totally bonkers…He’s back: the biggest Arab-American crackpot (high bar) Joseph Massad…The man’s insane…completely out of his mind. 100% stark raving, stir frying, pot boiling insane…batshit crazy…insane…hysterical…incorrigible crackpot Massad…amazingly stupid…well-established crackpot…madman”

Ibish on California State University Professor As’ad Abukhalil

“He has the intellectual capacity of a bit of lemon peel, sophistication of a toenail clipping & social graces of a dung beetle…pointlessly obnoxious, completely counterproductive and puerile self-gratification. Clearly, this individual imagines himself to be the drum major in some sort of grand Arab march to oblivion, although the ranks behind him are entirely a figment of his own imagination…idiotic.”

Ibish on Palestinian-American author, activist, & Co-founder of The Electronic Intifada, Ali Abunimah

“Pathological…sets up an online cult of personality reminiscent of Arab dictatorships…fanatic…loony…lying through his teeth…vicious…unscrupulous…height of hypocrisy…pathetic…totally degenerated into a totalitarian enforcer of political correctness & hatred…endless stream of hatred…totalitarian in nature…A scholar of what? With a degree in what?…lies…breathtaking hypocrisy…inhabits a virtual reality…an online phenomenon, cultist and a figment of his own imagination…vicious…demagogue”

Ibish has sometimes combined his three favorite targets together

“Massad is joined by Ali Abunimah, …And for the third stooge Assad AbuKhalil.

Ibish on other Arab-Americans in general that disagree with him

“Lay off the crack. Its not good for you…Crack pipe down!…shameless liar…idiots…all seem to come from 1) the People’s Democratic Republic of Arab-Americans; Or 2) The National Socialist Greater Arab-American Reich; or 3) The Islamic Emirate of America…angry bombast…cynical manipulators and wild-eyed zealots…extremism”

So Arab-Americans that disagree with Ibish are divided into three groups. They are either radical Leftists (Although that’s a label we would proudly wear, for those unfamiliar with Washington political culture and discourse, “People’s Democratic Republic” is associated with the radical Left and carries a negative connotation), or Nazis, or Al-Qaeda terrorists.

Ibish on Arab-American variety website Kabobfest

“And where would Larry [Abukhalil] and Moe [Abunimah] be without Curly? On cue, and with their usual sophistication and maturity, the scintillating intellectuals at Kabobfest chimed in…overgrown juvenile delinquents…have exhibited signs of suffering from a cybersphere version of Tourette’s syndrome.”

Ibish on ikhras

“Anti-Arab hate speech site…It is not only an anti-Arab-American website, it’s a proudly and categorically anti-American website…astounding shamelessness…vicious…repulsive…cowards, and despicable cowards at that…cowardice…ugly, sticky secrets…either totally unfamiliar or inimically hostile to basic tenets of civilized discourse…slanderous…faceless despots…totalitarian…malignant…how do you know this isn’t in fact the voice of the Zionist Organization of America, or some offshoot of Pamela Geller’s operation?…Arab-bashing hate speech…unrelentingly nasty…perfect example of the classic political “dirty trick.”…ridiculous…atrocious…bile…should be the very first to ikhras…outrageous and cowardly…one who engages in this behavior can, once exposed, hope to be regarded as anything other than a coward, a scoundrel and an individual beneath contempt…desperate trolls…Arab “left” anonymous cowards…stupid Arab quasi-Nazis with love of fascist dictators…they are devout in lying. Not that they are religious liars, but that they are religious in lying…zealots…anonymous abusive and spamming Twitter feed…cowering behind its craven anonymity…fanatics”
