more hypocrisy

Reader comment on item: Understanding Post-Mubarak Egypt
in response to reader comment: Game that "Westerners" play

Submitted by Prashant (United States), May 4, 2011 at 01:47

Dear Dr Pipes:

Your reader Amin Riaz did not even realize that he exemplified what can be termed the height of Islamist hypocrisy -- some of these guys are so deeply convinced of their righteousness that have completely forgotten the virtue of the golden rule. They fully believe that Islam and Muslims should be judged with a different yardstick.

Amin says "Christianity WAS never the original religion of Europe anyways." Amin does not realize and does not care to mention that Islam also WAS never the original religion of any part of this planet.

Amin also said Britain is a secular country. He does not realize that Britains secularism is due to the good principles of freedom and democracy that Britain adopted (and, in some cases, invented). I wish that some day we can also say that Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are secular countries but that is hardly any of Amin's obligations.
