re: "how sad!" _ by Shere Khan

Reader comment on item: The FBI Fumbles [on Gamal Abdel-Hafiz]

Yes, I guess Mr. Abdel-Hafiz blew his opportunity to make Muslims look good. What a shame. How sad.

Is that all that bothers you, "sheerahkahn?"

Does anyone remember Mr. Kipling's "Jungle Book?" Do you remember who "Sheera Khan" was? He was a Bengal Tiger, and the one character in the book who was a law unto himself. He was subject to neither man's law, nor the law of the jungle. He was treacherous, with no fellow feeling, and as such, totally evil.

Interesting that a Muslim should select such a name, and only be worried that a fellow muslim is making him look bad.

You can tell a lot about someone by whom they admire.
