criticism = hatred

Reader comment on item: Why Newt Gingrich Was Right about Palestinian History
in response to reader comment: Where is the lie? Accusing without evidence...

Mr Amin Riaz, attempting to take the high moral ground writes:

"This is overwhelming trouble with people of hate..... Look at your fellow anti-Muslims Dhimmi_No_More and Peter Hall. Try not going down that road."

If someone is open-minded they can and do change their beliefs when presented with new evidence. Sane people make this accommodation all the time. Close minded people argue black and blue trying to maintain their beliefs (and make them prevail) - however absurd they may be.

For example if Mr Riaz firmly believed he was a pineapple (or believed in flying supersonic donkeys) - is it 'hatred' to point out the absurdity of his belief?

It's bizarre how muslims invariably equate any criticism of Islam and its absurd beliefs and ingrained attitudes with hatred. Not one muslim on this blog has yet been able to logically and rationally answer Dhimmi's well-presented Arabic language demonstrations of the clear inconsistencies in the 'perfect' koran. When they can't win the standard 'tactic' is to resort to name calling - or suggesting there is something wrong with the critic.

Being anti-muslim only makes one a 'person of hate' - if you are a muslim. For everyone else - it is just pointing out the clear and obvious deficiencies in the belief system of that one particular cult. No hatred involved at all.

People see the outcome of the foreign belief system of Islam - make the obvious evaluation that it is a retrograde belief system with no place in the West - and say so.

To see real hatred - I suggest Mr Amin opens his eyes to the activities of muslims themselves - to the number of reports of maiming and killings coming in daily from all over the Islamic world. Indoctrinating young minds to hate one particular segment of humanity is beyond reprehensible. Doing the same for adults is par for the course for many of Islam's more erudite promoters.
