GUEST,Wolfgang Obit: More Muslim intolerance? (589* d) RE: Obit: More Muslim intolerence? 22 Nov 04


(Carol, you have not understood any of my points, I even can't tell from reading your post whether you have tried)

I'd still prefer to focus on Muslim fanatics in Europe. To hold all religions to the same esteem and not be prejudiced does not mean that you have to add something bad about people fromother religions when you want to complain about fanatics from one religion. It only means that you use the same standard to apply to all. If more people from one religion violate one particular human right than others from other religions it is no bigotry to point that out.

the victim of this especially brutal murder was herself a Muslim, and that this was a reason not to use her murder as an occasion for denouncing the religion she chose to belong to. (McGrath)

Sorry, but I consider this argument confusing at best. Her being a Muslim was a reason for not denouncing the religion? So if she would not have been Muslim it would have been alright denouncing the religion? If you do not think so (what I presume) then why mention she was Muslim at all since it does not matter in your eyes.

If I denounce people from the fundamentalist fringe of a religion for a brutality I do not care whether the victim was Muslim or not.

Germany's lost daughters

This is a two part English translation in a German (moderately left) magazine about the role of women in Muslim families in Germany and about their victimisation. It happens as well in other parts of the world, it has happened at other times in Germany as well. But here and now it is much more likely to happen in Muslim families. You may discuss other possible reasons but exclude that religion may be one contributing factor would not be helpful.
