hypocrisy of the Holy Books

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict

Submitted by michael cohen (United States), Sep 26, 2006 at 10:33

If the USA adopted the same policy regarding the Quran as the Saudi policy re: the Bible, Torah, etc., the Muslim world would again erupt violently, especially US Muslims, and rightfully so.

The Wahabi intolerance of other faiths needs to be brought to the public's attention, and Mr. Pipes I'm glad you're doing that. G-d forbid someone somewhere abuses the Muslim holy book, but I think in most strict Muslim countries, you'll find the burning of the "others" holy books routinely.

So easily inflamed by others, yet they continue to inflame and defame. It's time for a day of reckoning for the Muslim mainstream, is it not?
