Reader comment on item: A Christian Caught in Mecca; What Fate Awaits Him?
in response to reader comment: Visa to enter Makkah and Madinah

Are you saying then if the USA says that no Muslims are allowed to enter the USA you would say that is acceptable?

Or that people who are not Christians in Australia have to pay a heavier tax, you would be fine with that?

Or that the UK arrests and puts into jail any female caught wearing a burka?

I dont think so, you attitude smacks of double standards. The is a huge different when a country says no to drug dealers and restricting access under certain conditions, to a blanket no based on Religious grounds.

I think that double standards happen in all countries and religions, but Islam and the Saudis should be criticised as much as any Western Government get criticised. No more, no less.
