Good point, Plato, reg. Bamiyan buddahs

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Mansoor: Muslims really think Allah is powerless as they take up arms in His defence

The obliteration of the Bamiyan buddhahs by the Taliban was seen around the world. How very sad for millions of Buddhists - but there was no retaliation. No "fatwas" by them against Islam. No rioting in the streets.

Do you think Mansoor will reply to you on this issue? I doubt it. He seems unable to give black-and-white answers to black-and white questions (or issues). Your point about Allah being so powerless as to need his followers to protest with violence, murders in his defense - another interesting point, and another, I bet, that will go unanswered.

I think Mansoor is quite possiby "off his rocker" - read his comment, Closing eyes (509 words) , Mar 13, post further down. This guy's not playing with a full deck.
