Reader comment on item: Cairene Book Covers
in response to reader comment: Books and Propaganda

Submitted by G.Vishvas (Germany), Aug 1, 2008 at 07:31

There should be a world-wide law (passed in the UNO) that demands books (especially textbooks used in schools, colleges etc.) to be always printed along with commentaries by those who are criticised or vilified in these same books. In a book of 150 pages 100-120 pages should be reserved for the author and 50-30 pages for those who are criticsed by the author in this book.

Muslims write book with the sole intention of glorifying islam and muslims and justifying all their claims and vilifying or ridiculing non-islam and dismissing the claims made by non-muslims.

Consequently such a law would be very likely vehemently opposed or boycotted or subverted by the muslims (the agents and quislings of islam).
