Intolerance And Religion

Reader comment on item: "At War with Islamic Fascists"

Submitted by John R. Peacher (United States), Aug 17, 2006 at 09:15

How many synagogues or churches are attended every Sabbath in Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Afghanistan or Pakistan on a weekly basis. Where do followers of different beliefs do in countries and areas under the influence of Islam worship? Why does the West tolerate the lambasting we take from Islamic Organizations in our countries regarding freedom of religion and speech when countries that are mostly Muslim do not allow freedom of worship or speech?

The mainliine media MUST hold Muslim countries into account regarding lack of freedom. We must bring to the forefront the persecution of Jews and Christians and Buddists and other religious faiths in Islamic countries. Not holding the spokespersons to account of the religion they are trying to advance the world over is doing a great disservice to each and everyone of us who are residents of this troubled planet. Ask questions regarding freedom in Islamic countries. How many churchs or synagogues are in operation? Can women go to college, get a degree, practice business, and become active in politics? Who controls the press in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Pakistan, etc? And CAIR and other organizations promoting Islamic beliefs want the West to change?
