Religious Violence Spreads to India

    The fact that Islamists are still killing co-religionists over a 1400 year-old dispute regarding the succession to Muhammed suggest that, as usual, de Tocqueville had it right:
    “I studied the Koran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad.”
    (Letter to Arthur de Gobineau, 22 October 1843)

      Thanks for the de Tocqueville quote. It’s right on the money.

      How terribly disappointing to discover that de Tocqueville was vile Islamophobist all those years ago!
