Richard Dawkins' Use of "Sleight of Hand"

Mustafa Akyol, writing for the Turkish Daily News accuses Richard Dawkins of sleight of hand. Toward the tail end of the article, he includes this bit of sage advice:

And I think that is the correct theistic attitude to take vis-à-vis Dawkins and other preachers of atheism. A faith's strength comes from not its fervor to silence critics, but its ability to refute them. If Muslim believers in Turkey are annoyed by Dawkins' book, then they should bring counter-arguments to his theses, instead of asking for censorship by prosecutors.

True words.
