Militant Muslim Hatred

Reader comment on item: Harvard Loves Jihad

Submitted by Paul M. Neville (United States), Jun 12, 2002 at 21:23

For a long time I wondered why the Marxists/leftists had made a common cause with the Muslim fundamentalists. There was no apparent common ground. Muslim fundamentalists were religious conservatives while Marxists were anti-religion. Marxists claimed to support women's rights while Muslims oppress women. Marxists allegedly oppose discrimination while militant Muslims shun all who are not Muslims. Militant Muslims still practice slavery. They violently oppose abortions and kill homosexuals. The list of fundamental differences is long.

Then I realized that there existed no larger body of consistent haters of America and western civilization than militant Muslims. I had my answer.
