It is time to re-think "human rights"

Reader comment on item: [The Boim Trial:] Exploiting the Koran to Terrorize

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Dec 18, 2004 at 09:33

Dear Mr. Pipes,

I am writing from Europe where extremist Middle-Eastern organizations are very strong.

Let me give some advice to our American friends.

Don't follow Europe's foot-steps -- avoid our errors. Our main error was to be obsessed with "human rights," but we forgot to consider ALL people's rights.

North-Americans shall deal with Middle-Eastern assassins in a different way from our own.

Don't be afraid to arrest them, take their money and close down their organizations.

Don't allow Middle-East extremism to flourish in your back-yard.

Don't engage in pointless discussion about "terrorists vs freedom-fighters".

If an organization supports Middle-East extremism, then it shall be shut down.

If Middle-Eastern immigrants are found to be anti-Semitic, then they should be sent back.
