in response to reader comment: So many petty criminals, so little time

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Aug 18, 2013 at 10:29

"We can put them in the same category as Dariush and Parvaneh Forouhar, or Fr. Paolo Dall'Oglio, or Jessi Paulis Issa, or Mohammad-Hadi Bordbar, or Ishaq Masih."

My Answer : What is the cause that these petty people fought for other than being agents of CIA and Mossad ?

No body cares about these petty Western brainwashed people in the World.

It is a travesty to compare these petty criminals with someone like Rachel Corie and Furqan Dogan , let aside Bradley Manning , Assange or Edward Snowden.

The difference is Rachel Corie and Furqan Dogan both died for a noble cause which is to support a oppressed people. That is why their legacies are immortal.

Manning , Assange and Snowden I feel should be compared with the likes of Martin Luther , John Calvin , Abraham Lincoln , Winston CHurchill and George Washington since all of these great men of yesteryears alike today;s Manning , Snowden and Assange fought for liberty and freedom.

You cannot put your petty criminals whom you name with these greats of Western civilization. Period.

Take care

Debanjan
