Reader comment on item: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders
in response to reader comment: A RESPECTFUL DISAGREEMENT

Submitted by Sid (United States), Jan 21, 2010 at 08:59

I do not know why reasonable people like Dr. Pipes go ahead and say that "I do not hate Islam, but hate Islamists.." - blah blah!!! The problem is if you accept that political imperialism as a religion and respect it, you have to respect that manual of imperialism some call Qur'an. If you respect it, then you have no choice but respect Islamism. For an independent who wants to make an informed decision about this, I would advise to read Qur'an fully with an open mind (not with respect or disrespect) and then determine if it is at all possible to respect that political ideology. And I am not even going to what Hadith says about a 54-year old ... marrying his own daughter-in-law because it appeared that that is what his God built her for.
