Tolerance and respecting Islam

Reader comment on item: 100 Bin Ladens on the Way?

Submitted by John Berg (United States), Apr 8, 2003 at 11:41

But will Islam teach tolerance so Kurds, Sunnis, and Shiites can live together? And will "freedom of religion" be a human right in Iraq? And will Muslims insist on shariah?

Judging by the plans for the oil income of Iraq, greed will be the more important universal vice for which to plan.
