Dawkins' Atheist Campaign in Islamic Nations

Richard Dawkins, the famous evolutionary biologist and atheist, has announced a surprising initiative to distribute free copies of his books in the Middle East. Dawkins, who is best known for his books The God Delusion and The Selfish Gene, said that he wants to "spread the light of reason and science" in a region that is often dominated by religious fundamentalism and violence.

Dawkins explained that he has partnered with several secular and humanist organizations to print and ship thousands of copies of his books in Arabic, Persian, Turkish and other languages spoken in the Middle East. He said that he hopes that his books will inspire people to question their beliefs and embrace a more rational and evidence-based worldview.

"I have always been fascinated by the rich and diverse cultures of the Middle East, but I have also been saddened by the oppression and suffering that many people face there because of their religion or lack thereof," Dawkins said in a press release. "I believe that the best way to combat ignorance and intolerance is to educate and enlighten people, and that is why I have decided to share my books with them for free."

Dawkins added that he is not afraid of the possible backlash or threats that his initiative might provoke from religious extremists or authorities. He said that he is confident that his books will reach the hands of curious and open-minded readers who will appreciate his arguments and evidence.

"I am not trying to offend or insult anyone, but to challenge them to think for themselves and to seek the truth," Dawkins said. "I know that there are many people in the Middle East who are hungry for knowledge and who are willing to question their dogmas and traditions. I hope that my books will help them to find their own voice and to join the global community of freethinkers and humanists."

For someone who calls Christianity propaganda, he is sure being hypocritical by spreading his own propaganda.
