Mr Bannerjee, a noted Islamic apologist, writes:

"Look at how the West is treating someone like Julian Assange"

So , you tell us - how is 'the west' treating Assange?


And who is 'the West'?

"Already influential scholars like Jonah Goldberg(of nationalreview) and Sara Palin are calling for assasinating Assange. .......'"

It would be wonderful if you did a little research before making such fanciful pronouncements. Perhaps then you might be able to explain when did Sarah Palin became such an 'influential scholar'. And why is the author and journalist Goldberg, who strongly supports the war in Iraq, now suddenly an 'influential scholar' as well? Do you always use the statements of this 'scholar' - or only those which coincide with your views?

Or are you using the term 'scholar' in an Islamic sense? The majority of Muslims in the world have an abyssmal education - so I guess anybody who matriculated from high school would seem to be a 'scholar'.

Aside from the populist bayings of the 2 'scholars' you have quoted - which other leaders have said to throw aside the rule of law and have Mr. Assange assasinated? Can you name any?

"When it comes to killing the heretics the West is not dissimilar compared to the socities like Iran or China whom you hate so much.."

Heretics? You must certainly not be referring to religious 'heretics' - like we see these days being executed in Pakistan and Iran and other Muslim countries. No 'apostates' either.

Which heretics has the West executed recently? Name names please - both the victims and perpetrators.

Societies such as Iran and China are despised because of their totalitarian nature. Once you've tasted freedom you'll accept no counterfeits. Dhimmi would say - 'I urge you to abandon Islam and be free again ' but I urge you to abandon islam and be free for the first time
