Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by Dan Rusen (Canada), Feb 7, 2006 at 12:08

The cartoons were unwittingly more accurate than perhaps they know. ...

By the way...there is nothing new or unexpected about all this Islamic trouble. Anyone who is at all familiar with the Bible knows that all Arabs and thus Islamics are the spiritual scions and/or descendants of Ishmael, Abraham's other son whose mother Hagar he sent away. It is said of Ishmael in Genesis that Ishmael was against everyone, and everyone was against him.

Plus ca change, plus la meme chose.
