Ray Hanania's Halloween blues

Halloween's over now, but I did come across a rather shoddy article written by Ray Hanania about Muslims and Halloween. SunniSister and Izzy Mo corrected him and his responce was far less then polite. You can check out the fine details in the links provided, but one thing I have noticed in Hanania's writings over the years is lack of respect and knowledge when it comes to Muslims.

He also seems to suffer from some sort of complex about being a Palestinian Christian, and hates being mistaken for a Muslim. Reality check Ray, the majority of Palestinians are Muslim, as are the majority of Indians Hindu, so your anxiety about this is a tad bit disengenious. You would think that being a Palestinian he would atleast know a thing or two about the religion and customs of the majority of his people. I dont do Halloween, Hannukah, or Christmas just like you dont do Eid, Quanza, or Diwali, catch my drift? To proclaim that one is being "anti-american" for not dressing up and asking for candy is just plain stupid. Last time(or probably the only time) his name was in the news when racist Jackie Mason tossed him out of his standup routine. I would have done the same thing, only my reasoning would be that Hanania isnt remotely funny, but an ignorant, bitter middle aged man with a severe identity crisis disorder.
Pardon me while I "dress up" for Tarawih

Nicely done. I've been watching this unfold on the ladies' blogs, too. You're right about him.
