Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn
in response to reader comment: china is a great civilization, no matter what

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), May 11, 2007 at 23:58

"As for China being a great civilization, how come for centuries it was sleeping."

you are a fool to think that china wasn't a great civilization, most of the things the muslims claim to "invent" such as compass, camera etc, they were invented centuries before by chinese. There you go, living in the past. Well what has China to boast about in the present? A one child per family policy that has resulted in millions of female children put to death or aborted. What about this - Beijing pointing thousands of missiles at Taiwan.

Or what about this - closing of churches because they refer to an authority which is not the Beijing Politburo. You resort to name calling because you do not have the manners to see that you misinterpreted me. "I would like that beloved turkey was on the border with USA rather than europe, then i would like to see how many of you would still consider it "modern", "secular", "advanced"." There you go again, putting words in my mouth. Honestly, do you see that the Muslim world has been imprisoned by brigands who justify their actions in the name of Islam?

I honestly get the impression that you like to argue, and frankly unless everything is done the way you would do them - out come the knives to shiv those who want a different way so that the likes of OBL and Zawahiri are put into the ashbin of history like Hitler, Goebbels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and so forth.
