Reader feedback: Treat Muslims as equals

Re: Poll: Slovaks do not want mosques and Muslims in the country, Flash News, October 3, 2005

So, the majority of Slovaks do not want mosques and many dislike Islam as a religion. Has it ever occurred to Slovaks that most Iraqis don't want Slovak troops in their country?

You can't have it both ways. Either you engage with Muslims or you don't. If you do and you assist in the occupation of a Muslim country, then treat them and their religion with respect.

Muslims are equal with those of other faiths and should not be kicked around.
