Turnabout is fair

Reader comment on item: Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy – An Islamist Charter School in Minnesota?
in response to reader comment: Muslim Youths

Those Muslims declaring that their Muslim children have an inalienable right to an education in Britain or American schools in schools where the student dress, the school curriculum and teacher beliefs don't offend them need to go home to their native lands and demand such open and inalienable rights for those who are not Muslim.

Don't come back until you have yelled as loud and long for the rights of Christians and Jews to worship openly, to attend their own religious schools freely and without threat of (not expulsion or closing) death. Do not demand for yourselves rights that you will not and do not openly assure others in your own countries, cities and communities. You migrate to open and free countries like France, Britain and the US and then dare to demand shariah-based foods in the school cafeteria's, foot washing baths in restrooms, separate swimming facilites or times times for men and women, the sounding of the calls to prayer while denying the bare basics of freedom of religion and even threaten death to those who might differ to the Islamic faith.

Show me where in Saudia Arabia and most other Islamic countries open and free worship is afforded to Jews, Christians, Buddists, Anamists? Go back where you fled to demand the rights you want and then change your country so others are given EQUAL rights as Muslims in all aspects of life. You have it in America and Britain. If Islam is superior, go home and demand that it offer others what you want for yourself. If you laugh this off, you have to question the superiority of the Islamic faith that demands death for those who dare differ. Think about it honestly.
