India vs. Pakistan

Reader comment on item: A Good Country

When the British where in Palestine and leaving, they were also in India. At those times there was no Pakistan yet and Mahatma Gandhi, a Hindu, was leading India towards independence. It was in this struggle that Pakistan split from India because the Muslims of India demanded to live in their own country with it "superior" religion.

Regarding skin color or "race" the people are generally not different, although in fact India was an Empire when Queen Victoria became Empress of India under the (conservative) converted from Jewish Prime Minister Disraeli (Gladstone was the liberal progressive).

Although we in the USA treat everyone as a individual, we are also free to identify each individual's "Ideology," when it is relevant, regarding the "culture zone" that it came from/

The author you describe is apparently an "arrogant" Islamist who maybe unconsciously confuses the United States of America with India, a Democracy that flourishing, unlike the country she abandoned - Pakistan.

Pride and Arrogance are character traits common to Islamist even if they are not (yet) "terrorists." This is very different from Christian Humility that's manifest when learning about the life of Jesus Christ.

I am reminded of the fairy tail regarding falsely crying "wolf." It was a betrayal of our tradition to tell newcomers: "Go back where you came from." And we abused the expression "un-American." So now we are stuck with citizens who want to make-over our country while the country they came from is (as Trump put it) "a shit hole."
