Intolerance defines Lorraine Ali

Reader comment on item: Lorraine Ali, the Worst Political Reporter in America?

Submitted by SALTY (United States), Oct 15, 2007 at 01:17

After reading this article and these comments I feel I must add my own.

The courage it takes women and men to leave the religion of Islam is nothing short of amazing. Religious freedom and religious tolerance is something we Americans have grown up with and cherish.

Lorraine Ali whines about how down trodden she feels as a Muslim woman, how uncomfortable she feels in the United States. I wonder what would make Lorraine Ali feel more at home here? Perhaps if women were stoned in public parks for adultry she might perk right up. Especially if we mutiliated, hanged, shot or beheaded people in our soccer stadiums like the Talaban did in Afganistan did under Sheria law.

Or maybe Lorraine Ali would feel fine living here as a Islamist woman, if in America the religious Islamic establishment called for all of Islam to kill cartoonists, documentary film makers, artists and writers, who lampooned their religion. Assassination by religious decree might make Lorraine Ali feel soooo much better. Being made to to convert or die might be also be seen as Lorraine Ali's perscription for the United States in her bid to live here, as an anxiety free Islamist.

And lastly, watching hysterical, blood thristy, religious Muslim mobs gather to decry the west's tolerance or religion, not on TV but here in America from coast to coast, might bring tears of joy to Lorraine Ali's eyes. Personally, I wonder why Lorraine Ali doesn't have the conviction of her 7th century Islamic ideas. Personally, I wonder how she can cover western music without first covering herself up from head to toe in a black najab. Poor Lorraine Ali, could still complain about living in America, but we at least, wouldn't have to see her.
