Egyptians talking about dogs and pigs!

Reader comment on item: Debate in London: Radical Islam vs. Civilization

Submitted by Harrak (Canada), Feb 2, 2007 at 00:05

I just want to record my support for Dr Pipes point of view. I only find the quote about Ayatollah Khomeini unnecessary. What the dog and pig quote does though is putting an Egyptian stamp on an American letter. It also gives -probably unintended- credit to Egyptian dictatorship. The Morocco and Algeria examples were very very good and fit 100% the context. For example king Hassan II criticized Khnomeini, but in an educated way rather than the Egyptian low comment that shows Azhar education. I bet , Western educated politicians do not talk like that.
