in response to reader comment: Washington's Religious Outlook Towards The Islamic Faiths A Model For Others

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Nov 10, 2006 at 03:46

Of course, George Washington was an enlightened man. But, let me tell you that, with Muslims, only one approach can possibly work. Muslims can live in Muslim countries and I can live in my own country. I respect them and they respect me. I am not anti-Islam. I respect Islam. But I do believe that Europeans, Americans, Muslims and any other people or nation, are entitled to exist. The idea of having a European Islam or an American Islam is insane.
