Common courtesy is still in order

Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

I am in concurrence with the fundamentals of your article. However, the cancelling of the luncheon by the Belgians was not very courteous, nor politically correct. If the meeting had been with a group of Orthodox Jews from Israel, I'm sure there would have been no question that a Kosher meal would have been served. If the Belgian politician had so much problem with the fact that alcohol might not be served, he should have alerted the Iranian delegation that there would be alcohol present, and let them make the decission whether to attend or not.
