Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by Brooks Imperial (United States), Aug 30, 2005 at 13:50

I disagree with Stephan Berman. Whatever character or political flaws your average European or American possess, those in no way justify or excuse Islamic violence. Moreover, framing a western cultural emphasis in the face of violent terrorism as "coercive" is a double-think-redefinition of language of Orwellian proportions.
