The Passion of Paul Potts

Wafa Sultan on Muslim Terrorism

Wow, this has got to be on of the most amazing speeches/interviews I have seen in a long time. Wafa Sultan is an Arab-American Psychologist from LA. This video clip aired on Al-Jazeera TV (Qatar) on Feburary 21st, 2006. She really lays it on the line for the Muslims and the belief that Islamic faith […]
