If you want to see a very smart person knock one out of the park,
This woman, Wafa Sultan, is one of the most impressive speakers I've ever seen. The interview linked above has turned her into an international sensation. Al Jazeera brought her on as the Con viewpoint, and boy did they get one. Just to give you some context, she is a Syrian, raised Muslim, now living in California as a naturalized US citizen.
Although she does say that only Muslims burn down churches, which is patently false, she's right on the money for a lot of it. If you can't watch the video for some reason, there is a transcript, but it is a poor substitute.
