Reader comment on item: The Clash to End All Clashes?

Submitted by Gabriel Grosso (Italy), Feb 13, 2006 at 05:58

European embassies were destroyed in the Middle East and an Italian Catholic priest got killed in Turkey. Threats have been uttered against Europeans. I will try to be objective on this one.

I have seen the Danish cartoons and one or two could be seen as offensive. However, Jews, Christians, Hindus and Buddhists are often targeted. I don't have a problem with people from the Middle East and I don't hate anybody in this world. I am not Islamophobic. But I don't want to talk to violent people, whatever their race, color and creed. Europeans have been subjected to violence in the Middle East and I don't want to talk to those who commit violence.
