What "language"?

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Better mind your language

I sincerely appologize if my "language" offended you.

I was responding to the comments by "Willing Foe", and I quoted him on a point which I think is a very good one - you don't see Christians and Jews going nuts over the Dome. Many absolutely horrendous cartoons depicting Jews are consistently circulated in the Muslim world. Effigies of my President and the American Flag and the Israeli Flag are burned and stomped on. Do you see Jews or Christians rioting in the streets over this? No.

You don't see Christians and Jews going nuts over the Dome - which covers the Temple Mount, the holiest sit in Judaism - but you, Mansoor, get offended by a couple of words on a website. That shows me, somehow, more than anything else I've read, how wide the wide swath of Islamic intolerance.

This very intolerance, in my opinion, is what will doom Islam.
