Reciprocity and accountability

Reader comment on item: Mosque in Cordoba, Church in Damascus

Submitted by No Dhimmi (United States), Dec 29, 2006 at 10:23

It is not as if there are no mosques in Cordoba where muslims could pray. I believe this is an attempt by the growing muslims population to "test the waters" as to how far they can go with making demands. To allow muslims to pray at the Church WITHOUT Christians being afforded the same in Damascus AND Istanbul, then it should not occur. I do not believe it should be granted because there would be no accountability on the muslim side. Muslims would never allow Christians to "retake" either site because it would be viewed as Islam capitulating to a "corrupted" religion.
