Ignorance is bliss; war is deceit...

Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam
in response to reader comment: not really

Submitted by van der Ley (Canada), Jul 7, 2006 at 03:27

My poor Qu├ębecoise...

(1) "the vatican must stay away from politics. "

The Vatican is a State; as such, it can't stay away from politics.

(2) "now again religion is mixed with politics..also vatican has no mandate to become catholic's protectorate."

So, religion and politics don't mix in the Islamic Republic of Islam? Is Sharia law a religious practice or a political instrument? And the Holy See is the ultimate directing body for all Catholics.

(3) "civilized nation should speak for human rights in general not catholic rights"

Experience civilized, Islam-style Human Rights at its best here: http://www.mensnewsdaily.com/archive/newswire/news2004/0904/092104-armstrong-beheading.htm

(4) "all of us know who is real friend of saudi arabia..is america true or not?"

Yeah, America is behind all that is evil in the world...

(5) "maybe if we admit de paoli comment, muslim countries then should have the right to interfere in israel muslims and in russian muslims and even american and chinese muslim affairs."

They already do:

(1) Surfacing of videos related to 7/7 bombing (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060706/ap_on_re_eu/britain_bombings_video)

(2) Inciting violence: "Choudary warned Britain faced CIVIL WAR with its 1.6million-strong Muslim community. Choudary warned Britain faced CIVIL WAR with its 1.6million-strong Muslim community."

(3) Iran: Israel exploiting World Cup
(http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3270970,00.html)

Tell you what: next time you go on your outings on all those exotic lands, try to live there.
