Islamists' hypocrisy knows no bounds

Dear Dr Pipes: Once again a reader (Mohammad, CPA) living in an Islamic republic has requested the "decent people of America" to respect their "democratic values" and support the ground zero mosque. When will these people understand that reciprocity is a very useful concept: 1) you should treat others the way you want to be treated and 2) you should not ask that from others what you do not want to give back.

So those who live in Islamic republics and emirates or love these Islamic republics and emirates should not ask others to follow democratic values.

How many times this statement has to be repeated in this forum before every islamist who wants Americans to follow American values stops doing so? Why is this simple message so difficult to understand?
