Some good news from Rome

Reader comment on item: Trump's Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's Capital – What Does It Mean?

Submitted by Prashant, Feb 27, 2018 at 23:35

Dear Dr Pipes, Last Saturday (Feb 24, 2018) some good news came from Rome. Finally someone stood up to make a small dent in Islamism. That day the Rome Coliseum was painted red with bright red lights to protest against the blasphemy laws of Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Pakistan has some fancy laws to protect the honor of Muhammad and under those laws a Christian woman has been given some arbitrary punishment. The Coliseum was colored red in support of the innocent woman.

Islamic hypocrisy and disrespect toward equality and the golden rule is not going unnoticed. Everyday, millions of people are speaking against islamic hypocrisy on social media. This all adds up. Those who colored the Coliseum red, deserve a lot of praise but I am sure that they drew their strength from millions of people who speak against Islamism all over the world. This battle will not end until the whole world accepts that on our increasingly more democratic planet there is no room for current or future Islamic theocracies.
