Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Wanted: Dead or Alive

Submitted by pastor paul carley (Ireland), Feb 7, 2006 at 05:19

I have just listened on a local radio station here in Ireland to the guy who organised the demonstrations in London. He was trying to explain why it was a valid protest to have a man dressed up as a sucide bomber in a city where people where savagely and randomly killed, despite the fact that they are innocent.

Surely the images of a bus torn to pieces in the early morning are a much greater insult to a people who have sheltered many moslems, who allow them to practise their faith, who have modified laws to incorporate their traditions. It is an affront to Allah for anyone to hurt injure and offend anyone who has given refuge or shelter.

Unlike the West many Moslem countries do not afford people of other faiths to live freely, Christians are persecuted on a dialy basis in place like Nigeria and anyone trying to leave the moslem faith risks their life.

It is appalling that those we have sheltered should now bite the hand that feeds them, perhaps it is time that a clear line was drawn in the sand and we state that we are not Moslem countries we do not except their ways we do not want their traditions imposed on us. If we leave it too late we could find that like many Germans, we wake up in a state under a dictator we did not vote for.
