If the Egyptian in question is a Muslim how is that a lie

Reader comment on item: A Second Islamist Organization Apologizes to Me

Submitted by Rachel Garber (United States), Mar 4, 2008 at 12:16

What a bunch of yo-yos. If the religion of the person in question is Muslim, how is that a lie? Is the Muslim community that sensitive about their religion that referring to someone as a Muslim a lie. He didn't call the person a Christian, or (worse, I suppose in their eyes) a Jew.

Is referring to someone by their own religion a lie? ... Of course, unsavory epithets can be added to that, but that's another issue altogether.

Let them pay up, and pay up big!!
