Hypocrisy stinks

Reader comment on item: Mosque in Cordoba, Church in Damascus

Submitted by Prashant (United States), May 7, 2015 at 00:53

Dear Dr Pipes:

So Islamic board of Spain wants to "create" an ecumenical space in the Cordoba church and hopes that it will bring peace to humanity. I am heart-broken by the hypocrisy of the Islamic board of Spain. When I look around the planet, I see so many mosques on top of or adjacent to the centers of pilgrimage of other religions. Be it the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya India, or the Hagia Sophia in Turkey, or Al-aqsa in Jerusalem, or tens of other mosques next to himdu temples in India, Islamic mosques are always present next to religious icons of other religions.

All these Mosques must be to bring peace to humanity. Wow. That is amazing. When can we build a few temples and churches and synagogues in Saudi Arabia and Mecca to bring even more peace to humanity? For heavens sake, can we just save our Bamiyan Buddhas (forget about building something)?
