Respect of Islam

Reader comment on item: Tariq Ramadan Gives Up – Then Tries Again

Submitted by Janusz Kowalik (United States), Jan 20, 2010 at 18:12

President Obama is wrong offering respect to Islam. We should not respect Islam because Islam does not respect us, the Western world. Every ideology needs to earn respect.The fact that Islam pretends to be a religion is not enough.We never respected Nazism .We had to fight Nazism and its consequences. The same applies to Islam. Saying that Islam is peaceful and Islamists are just extremists is like saying that Nazism was peaceful but it was hijacked by Hiter soldiers.
