Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam
in response to reader comment: With Words Like Those of the Iranian Minister, Should There Really be Any Wonder the Swiss are Defensive?

Turkey has been already prostitionalized by secularism. now, it is taking few steps towards Islamdom. bernard lewis says of Turkey to be an admantly Muslim country. There is a solution I suggest to you: Leave afghanistan and Iraq, and come as tourists to our lands. You will be most come. You invade us and disintegrate our unity and want us to bless you, you poke fun at the prophet (P.B.H.) and demolish our symbols and ask us to respect yours! You steal us and ask us to be generous with you! Ask yourself and be honest when you answer: How started it all? The Danish and the Swiss. Non of the Moslems have demolished churches. it was the wahabis which the USA had supported that demolished churches in Iraq. but churches are proptected. Saddam has increased the number of churches, renewed the old and there had been Christian ministers, the USA brought fanatacism and installed Al-Qaida in Iraq.

You are not straightforward, and you judge people with double-standard. You put an end to secular Iraq which can just spread tolerance all over the Middle East and counterbalance Iran. Now you are antagonizing some third of humanity who are muslim. Isn't that stupid. Just hold your horses and think quietly and be just. Who started colonization? Who waged the Crusades? Who made the prophetic cartoons. of course you will confound Ottoman with Arabs and say its freedom of expression. I believe in discipline and a code of manners of respect of the others. but the other should deal on equal footing with me also. I respect your point of view and denounce violence but you should also denounce violence. The epleted uranium used against Iraqis, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima? Aggression against lebanon and the palestinian with Western support and weapons. Why you claim that there is one truth and this truth is the one you see and believe in?
