‘Islam’s double standard’ poses ‘threat to United States’

“Islamic countries apply a double standard when it comes to the treatment of ‘holy books’ and people who differ in faith and practice from Islamic dogma. While Islamic groups in the United States are engaged in ‘sensitivity training’ sessions for non-Muslims that have included federal workers, the Ohio National Guard and U.S. Air Force Academy, there are no such training sessions directed at Muslims to teach them tolerance for non-Islamic faiths. Quite the contrary.

“While the slightest verbal or physical slight of any Muslim in America is immediately condemned by activist groups and sometimes the U.S. government, the denigration of Jews and Christians throughout much of the Islamic world is theological and political business as usual. Jews are regularly referred to as ‘apes and pigs’, mostly because that is what the Koran calls them…. To accept this Islamic double standard creates a significant threat to the United States.”
