Old prejudices coming to fore.

Reader comment on item: Obama to Palestinians: Accept the Jewish State
in response to reader comment: Sanctity of Life

Your prejudice is clear and obvious:

"What an odd thing to say.. but on second thought maybe not, considering the source."

Then you say:

" You are arguing that "Sanctity of Life " is not important in Islam. The fact is not surprising but the admission is. Any discussion after this admission is pointless."

I am not arguing ANY such thing. Neither have I done so. You simply chose to derive the meaning that fits your prejudice.

This is difficult to prove:

"I will start with title tatter --Sanctity of Life --is my driving force--it's just Respecting and Accepting the most Precious in this Universe---Life"

I stand by what I said. For this person to prove this WOULD be difficult. I very much doubt he has sufficeint knowledge of logic, lignuistics and philosophy to do so.

As his posts are religious babble - which doesn't carry much weight and more often than not - not in response to a anyone argument - but just nonsensical ranting.

You quoted this:

"According to you! Ha ha - this would be an interesting point to prove. But I doubt you will ever be able to."

Which in no way says - that I disagree with "Sanctity of Life" - like I have said above - you simply chose to derive nonexistent meanings to suit your prejudice [and hatred] as I am a Muslim.

- - -

I and this person were NOT discussing "Sanctity of Life" - such people tend to post this kind of babble at you.
