Time to take punitive action against political party called Islam.

Reader comment on item: Islam vs. History

Submitted by Prashant (India), Dec 30, 2017 at 04:21

Dear Dr Pipes,

It is one thing if Muslim ravagers conquer and capture the religious places of other religions. It is a completely different ball-game if these ravagers destroy the historical artifacts belonging to our common world heritage.

If it is proven that Palestinians destroyed Joseph's tomb or dumped ancient material from Temple mount without care, then the action should be punitive against these marauders. For example, the UN body that declares various places as world-heritage sites, should also declare that these sites should not be under Islamic politico-religious control. If the UN had somehow declared that an attack on the Bamiyan Buddhas would be considered an act of war against the UN forces, these famous statues would still have been there for future generations of humans to view and be proud of. Now, thanks to Talibans, they are just dust!

As a Hindu, I see a lot of commonality between various faiths. I have a deep feeling for respect and love for Jerusalem. I would not ever like to trust Jerusalem in the hands of Muslims. So not only Jerusalem should be under Israeli control, it is the a joint responsibility of all humans to protect Jerusalem from politico-religious Muslims.

You make an important distinction. Perhaps the only way to stop Islamist marauding of monuments of other faiths is to threaten their monuments.
