Reader comment on item: Don't Ignore Electoral Fraud in Egypt
in response to reader comment: Islamic duty is to be dishonest

Submitted by Ted (United States), Jan 28, 2012 at 18:13

Dear Dr Pipes:

Responding to Jacques Hadida, you correctly pointed out not all muslims are inherently dishonest. No one in his sane mind will say that all Muslim businessmen are dishonest with each other any more than non-muslim businessmen. But is it possible that when it comes to the matters of Islam, muslims are more likely to be dishonest than followers of other religions in the matters related to their religions. For example, a Muslim living in a democracy is more likely to vote for a muslim candidate only because of his religion. Similarly, a Muslim is probably more likely to come up with an excuse for 9/11 than, say, a Hindu for the caste system or a Christian for Hitler's inhumanity. These are also examples of dishonesty and it is rampant in the Islamic societies.
