Obied Khan - you wrote "the visa to visit Mecca is to become a Muslim."

I respect that and honor it in the sense that I don't believe religions should necessarily accomodate every modern fad. I also honor your right to hold your xenophobic opinion as a fundamental freedom.

Hopefully you honor my right to hold the opinion that the cost of a visa to visit or immigrate to the U.S. should be public renunciation of the Koran.
