Can you admit that's a separate allegation from the 'get-rich-quick-scheme' thing? And that if you're going to critique Harris, you have to take him at his word about his beliefs?

Then, theoretically, we could have a reasoned discussion about the appropriate response to radical, militant Islam / Islamism.
