Lying by omission is the biggest tool used by Islamic apologists

Dear Dr Pipes,

All of a sudden Debanjan Banerjee wants Israel to become a Islamic majority nation (which would mean 98% Muslims in Israel). In that context he said that the sacred nation of Pakistan recently elected a lower caste Hindu woman as a senator. And he used this election to disprove that 'there are no Hindus in Pakistan'. Yes, Mr Banerjee, we know that there are still 2% Hindus in Pakistan. In 1947 there were 12% Hindus in Pakistan. And in the year 647 there were 100% Hindu/Buddhists in Pakistan. You omitted these facts in your assertion. But when it comes to apologists, lying by omission is a standard tool. Thank you.

And if one senator in Pakistan, can make Hindus of Pakistan very satisfied, Mr Banerjee forgot to mention that Muslims must be immensely happy in Israel. Here is a useful link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Arab_members_of_the_Knesset.

Please stop lying by omission, Dear Mr Banerjee.
