Reader comment on item: Palestinians Taste a Dose of Their Own Medicine
in response to reader comment: hypocrisy, pure and simple

Submitted by Daisy (United States), Nov 21, 2005 at 02:25

Yamin, you claim that "The London bombings, attributed to Al-Qaeda, exposed the hypocrisy of the Britsh and their allies, who condemn terrorism against themselves but not against others, especially not Muslims."

You are wrong. What the London bombings have exposed is simply one more example of Islamist terrorism. Hypocrisy is one thing Yamin; delusional thinking is another. Blood feuds, a mechanism for 'justice' in the world of Islam, require neverending violence. Those outside of Islam's dominion do not engage in blood feuds (of course, there are exceptions and the Mafia is a notable one). For some time now, Islamist terrorizers have operated under the delusion that infidels are engaged in blood feuds with them. We are not engaged in blood feuds and to continue to ignore that fact is both hypocritical and delusional.

Reality demands that you accept the fact that Westerners are not engaging in kind with medieval terms or methods. We have certainly suffered the effects of blood-feuding enacted upon us .. but do not at any time expect to be engaged with on your terms. That has nothing to do with hypocrisy, Yamin, that has to do with reality. Begin to get used to it.
