Dear Dr Pipes:

Your reader, Nick, who claimed to be a 'recent British revert to Islam' showed typical islamist in-your-face attitude when he said, "Muslims in Britain are as much British and have the same rights as non-Muslim Britons and should not be expected to bear the blame for what happens in a country overseas.".

Technically speaking, Nick is right. But humans are expected to be fair to each other. Did Nick realize when he 'reverted' to Islam that he was joining a worldwide brotherhood of hyporites who want favors that they do not want to return. Sure, Nick, can demand his rights in Britain but does it matter to him that if he decides to immigrate to Saudi Arabia and then wants to convert back to his original non-Islamic religion his plight as an apostate in Saudi Arabia may not be as good as his plight as a Muslim revert in Britain.
