The new atheists were slammed in an Aljazera article on April 2. Link:
Sample paragraph:
“However, what is being pursued today by individuals such as Harris and others under the guise of disinterested observation is something far more insidious. By resurrecting the worst excesses of scientific racism and its violent corollaries, Harris is heir to one of the most disreputable intellectual lineages in modern history.”
 
Glenn Greenwald tweeted the piece so that it was read by 150,000 people. Sam Harris did not take kindly to this. There were a series of contentious emails between the two of them which Harris has posted on his blog here:
Personally I like Sam Harris, a lot. That does not mean that I would want to defend everything that he says. As with most of us with our skeptical tool boxes, we can a thing or three to disagree with when we sift through what Sam Harris has to say.
