Gary,

Looks to me like Harrak has been reading "Taqiyya for Dummies" again (http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/).

Minimum dignity indeed. Ask Wafa Sultan who has more dignity – she, an American citizen, or some poor Muslim woman who is forced to walk around in a tent, denied education, and made the victim of an ‘honor murder' anytime any Islamist feels like it.

As far as respecting world leaders, I am well-acquainted with Mr. Chretien's stature in the world. Here is just one small example of his statesmanship (regarding Israel's desire to maintain control of the Sea of Gallillee):

"I am not the expert of where was the international border. Apparently there was a border that was occupied a long time ago and there was war and so on," he told reporters. "For a Canadian we have 30 million lakes so we don't see it in the same perspective but I can understand the need for Israel to keep the only lake they got."
National Post, April 12, 2000

Brilliant. Jimmy Carter pales in comparison.

I leave with words from the Koran, properly interpreted so even kuf's like us can understand the "true meaning of Islam" (thanks to Dr. Pipes, http://www.danielpipes.orfg/article/2765):

"O you who believe in democracy! Take not Muslims as your advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, Since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed, we have made clear to you the constitution, if you understand. Lo! You are the ones who love them but they love you not, and you believe in all the Laws i.e., you believe in the Democracy and the Freedom, while they disbelieve in Reason. And when they meet you, they say, ‘We believe.' But when they are alone, they bite the tips of their fingers at you in rage….."
Surah 3: 118-120

Your friend,
Mark
