Do you realize you repeated the same phrase without addressing the inverse?

Reader comment on item: Islamism 2.0
in response to reader comment: Muslim Intellectuals and Non-Muslim Intellectuals saythe same thing - word for word.

"Non-Muslims should be tolerant of Muslims" AND "Muslims should be tolerant of Non-Muslims" are spoken in the same breath in Non-Muslim countries. Without recipreocal respect and tolerance, there can be no peace. I have not heard Muslims FREQUENTLY say that "Muslims should be tolerant of Non-Muslims" but it is beginning to be said.

Unfortunately, the Muslims have lost one of the key tenets of the basic One-God religion thay started the Muslim beliefs: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". The lack of this basic godly concept is why Muslims cannot live in peace with their neighbors. Unfortunately for them, and us, we are all neighbors in this world made smaller by faster easier cheaper travel and communication. Muslims would have us all be intolerant of non-muslims, and better yet, kill them all. Such a cancer cannot be allowed to grow. Muslims who are tolerant of Non-Muslims will do very well in this MODERN world. Muslims who are not tolerant of Non-Muslims will increasingly find themselves driven away, isolated, and shunned by the rest of humanity that IS tolerant of other ideas and ways of life.
