You obviously didn’t read the link, let alone the book.  Well, if you’re determined to remain ignorant, I cannot prevent it.

Actually, you don’t even have to go afield of Harris’ own books to see the point you raise illustrated.  Nawaz did a nice job of debunking just about every dumb thing Harris has to say about the “unique problem” Islam represents in Islam and the Future of Tolerance: A Dialogue.  On my read Harris came out looking so provincial, self-satisfied and uninformed in that dialogue that I am rather surprised he allowed it to be published.  Chock one up, I guess, for a lack of intellectual self-awareness (and hence one too against his professions of holding only rationally driven beliefs..).
