Hinduism mistaken for Islam?

Reader comment on item: A Muhammad Cartoon a Day

Agreed with your article except that you should know that Hindus hold the cow sacred, muslims eat beef. Hindus are very very very different from muslims and that';s the reason why innocent people were slain at the Sikh temple in Wisconsin recently. ...

Daniel Pipes replies:

No offense against Hindus intended. Rather, "Sacred cows make the best hamburger" is an existing expression.

See http://msgboard.snopes.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=101;t=000381;p=0 for a discussion of the phrase.
