A War Against Whatever

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Respons to comment: "As for the wave of attacks on Christians in Pakistan,you've heard it said "For every action there's an equal and opposite reaction" The attacks on Muslims in the US and elsewhere since 9/11 is the result of that reaction. I'm not implying that I favor this but there's only so much abuse one can endure before they lash out"

Dear Kiambu Abdul-Malik Akhdarr,

I very it very upsetting that you compare the two situations as if they are the same. I regret that Muslims were attacked after the 9/11 incident and this is very disgusting behaviour even if someone agreed with the acts of terror.

But surely sir, you cannot compare verbal abuse and vandalism to the acts of Christians being murdered purportedly in retaliation for the acts of the West?
