Talk in terms of today

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism
in response to reader comment: Muslim Hate

Islam, nobody ever said that muslems burnt down every church they had ever come across in all the years since Muhammad invented this religion. No one excuses the excess of the crusades many many many years ago. Unfortunately, you are falling into the same old trap of justifing actions today by citing examples of antiquity.

Talk in terms of today, now, the present.

The reality is that there are Islamic countries in this world. It is also a reality that with the exception of Turkey other religions are not tolerated. So dont talk to me about burning down our churches, talk to me about alowing me to live my life as I please when ever and where ever I want, as long as I dont break the law.
