It does one good to look into the mirror upon occasion. The truth is not always so pretty as that which is imagined.

Reader comment on item: Why Shariah Must Be Opposed
in response to reader comment: Aania Ahmed. How does it feel like it to be at the receiving end?

I do not live in some religiously inspired La La land. I live in the world of hard realities that require of me that I observe the consequences of my acts and choose to act according to what I percieve as right and proper. I have my own concept of justice and I treat all who I meet accordingly. Nor do I demand any special dispensation for myself that I would not be willing to grant to others. Such is the way of G-Ds law for me. If some man has any other idea in his head in his dealings with me then I will treat him according to the way that he treats me. If he comes to kill me I will kill him first. If he lies to me and seeks to decieve me then it becomes my right to do the same to him. I make no distinctions among men for their supposed religious beliefs. I will return as I am given like for like, a blessing for a blessing and a curse for a curse.

So If I curse you it will be only the just and rightful reward for your own infamy
