Reader comment on item: How the Cartoon Protests Harm Muslims [by Leading to a Separation of Civilizations]

Submitted by jaimito (Israel), Feb 20, 2006 at 01:06

Who cares? Let the Muslims go back to Middle Ages, since they insist on doing so. Let them spend their time memorizing the Quran and walking in circles round the Qaaba and throwing stones to the devil on Mount Arafat. Make sure they cannot do harm to us and if possible, to themselves, and them enjoy their insanity.

We should apply anthropologist's ethics of not disturbing primitive societies nor challenge their extraordinary beliefs. The habit of bringing some exemplars to the West, like Columbus bringing Indians to show in Spain, should be reverted, since living in the West harms these fragile individuals. It is wrong to transplant Muslim Somalis to London or Coppenhagen. Morally wrong. Muslims should be allowed to work out their spiritual evolution in their pristine environment.
