Mincor correction in my message above

Reader comment on item: Why Egypt Will Not Soon Become Democratic
in response to reader comment: Islamic countries should stop calling themselves Islamic

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Jan 21, 2017 at 01:07

Dear Dr Pipes, In my message above I said, "So a small Islamic nation in Mecca, a small Sikh nation in Amritsar, and a small Christian nation in Vatican will indeed be welcome. On the contrary, an Israel will be objectionable if it gets 100 times bigger than what it is."

The corrected passage should read:

So a small Islamic nation in Mecca, a small Sikh nation in Amritsar, and a small Christian nation in Vatican will indeed be welcome. On the contrary, a Jewish Israel will be objectionable if it gets 10000 times bigger than what it is.

What I am saying that small religious entities are welcome to acknowledge the debt of our common heritage to different religions but religious entities with worldwide ambitions are unacceptable.
