Americans' awareness very impressive

Reader comment on item: The Snipers: Crazy or Jihadis?

Submitted by Karsten Brasch (United States), Oct 31, 2002 at 11:36

I must say, after reading most comments posted here, that Americans are not as dumb as I thought them to be with respect to understanding the dangers of militant Islam. Almost each one of these comments posted here will silence any critic of American policies or other haters of Israel.

The cases of Islamic intolerance around the world are too many to be listed but one notable omission that I observed is that of Kashmir. Kashmir is another example of Islamic intolerance, where nearly half a million Kashmiri Hindus (called Pundits) who form a minority were ethnically cleansed by the Muslim population with help from murderous Jihadis from across the border in Pakistan.

Predictably enough, Hindus constituted the educated middle-class - doctors, engineers and the like, whereas Muslims know only the Quran. The result is almost a backward Taliban like society with poverty and misery which is all blamed on the "atrocities of the Indian government".

Not one word is ever heard about the fact that non-Muslims have been systematically cleansed from Kashmir and that Hindus have been made refugees in their own country.

Nothing will change until our dear politicians shed their PC talk.
