I read your article on Mythology Wars and found it for the most part well written and informative.
I would, however, suggest considering to change the passage we cannot deny that Oriental Studies was the handmaiden of colonialism and imperialism into a less general statement. As it stands, it is (at least) a gross oversimplification of the complex motives and methods of early oriental studies. I dont know if you read Halbfass India and Europe. If not, I strongly recommend it to you. I am sure you will enjoy the reading...
All the best,
