not to paraphrase but to quote Montaigne and Erasmus:

Reader comment on item: "At War with Islamic Fascists"
in response to reader comment: To paraphrase William Shakespeare: "Excrement" by any other name would smell as bad

In his essay 'On the Art of Conversation', Michel de Montaigne cites Erasmus.
'As it was ingeniously and aptly put by the man who first said it: 'Stercus cuique suum bene olet.' (Everyone's shit smells good to himself.)'

All the vices of the islamo fascists are equally the lusts of the Christians and the Hebrews.
