REJECTED by Globe & Mail, April 7/07

Subject: re: Don't mess with me, I'm a comedian -- and a lawyer, April 7/07

Sarfraz Manzoor’s article about the Muslim comedian, Azhar Usman, asserts, “As an embattled minority under attack worldwide, Muslims have been..." Really!? A minority? How can a people who number far in excess of a billion people be regarded as a minority? On a worldwide scale it is the Jews, numbering mere millions, who are a minority, and they have been attacked for centuries. The Muslim world contains numerous minorities (eg. Coptic Christians, Kurds) that are under attack – none of which is funny to the victims.
