The others....

Reader comment on item: Why the Japanese Internment Still Matters
in response to reader comment: They're not the "other"

Submitted by Angel B. (United States), Nov 7, 2006 at 19:30

Dear Tasha,

Although the premise of your anology referring to the KKK & Christians is correct, you fail to connect the basic tenets of Christianity to the behaviour itself.

For ALL Christians, the KKK's behaviour is a "mortal sin" and totally unacceptable based on the most basic tenets of Christianity.

This is not the case with Muslims. The basic tenet of their religion is to convert us at all cost or kill and enslave us. The Muslim that does not adhere to THESE tenets is being a SINFUL MUSLIM.

Once you factor this reality into the equation, ones perception tends to change.

Kind regards,

Angel B.
