I wouldn't do that, Abdullah.

Reader comment on item: Why Shariah Must Be Opposed
in response to reader comment: OK, If Not Sharia - Then What?

I would never tell Jews their religion is wrong, or to remove their clothing. That's unthinkable. I don't know anyone who has or would do such a thing. Let's keep a few basic facts in mind, here OK?

Jews never tell me my religion is wrong.

Jews never try to impose their religious laws on me. They simply choose to live by their own religion, and seem happy to let me live by mine.

Nothing in the Jewish faith obligates Jews to fight to force others to convert to Judaism.

Nothing in Jewish scripture talks about trees and rocks that will cry out to Jews to come and murder members of other faiths that are hiding behind them.

Jews are not led in prayers for the destruction of people of other faiths at their temples.

Jews don't murder other Jews who convert to other religions.

Jews don't go looking for reasons to be offended and reasons to riot.

Jews never kidnap people of other faiths, tie them up and saw their heads off in front of video cameras.

Jews never hide bombs underneath that black clothing.

No Jewish rabbi has his own militia.

Jews didn't dance in the streets on September 11.
