Clash of civility in East and West [LINK]
Second one today:
Responding to Cathy Young's column on Western military timidity, Arnaz Malhi says: "My history classes tell me that the biggest crimes against humanity (in the last 300 years) were committed by the British empire and Nazi Germany." This is an astonishing statement to begin with, made worse by the fact that he is addressing Ms. Young, who was one of the lucky few permitted to emigrate from the former Soviet Union. That regime was far more lethal than Hitler's Germany, and both were topped by Mao's China.. Mr. Malhi needs to further his study of history.Malhi also fails to note that while India produced Gandhi, his countrymen utterly ignored him when it came time to partition Pakistan. In the ensuing fighting between Hindus and Muslims, about a million people died, many by matchete.
