In the Sandbox...
A Question for Muslim Nations
Why doesn’t the West (U.S., European Union, etc.) ask the Muslim countries one simple question before responding to their alleged insult of Mohammed by a Danish newspaper’s cartoons and its constitutional right to freedom of the press: When will Christians and other religious groups be granted the same religious freedoms in certain Mideast countries that Muslims currently enjoy in the “evil empires” of the West?
That’s it, just that one simple question. Shouldn’t be that hard. I mean they seem pretty interested in the fact that people should respect Islam and its teaching, whether they are Muslim or not. Shouldn’t they lead by example and show the “evil West” what they mean through their own actions toward non-Muslims?
