Understanding Joseph Massad on homophobia and gay rights
In a column published on his blog on February 4, 2010, Hussein Ibish provides a lucid explanation of Joseph Massad's take on homophobia and gay rights. What he writes makes far more sense that what I have read by Massad himself. I don't agree with Massad, but Ibish has explained where he's coming from and equally important, what is wrong and problematic in his stance towards gay and lesbian people living in the Arab world.
