"Let's Talk"

A letter to the “Let’s Talk” column at Aljazeera.com (which is nothing to do with Al-Jazeera TV, incidentally) asks “Religious tolerance in the West - Does it exist?”

Here’s the answer from one Sheikha Sajida:
“Religious tolerance is indeed needed in the West as it has a variety of people and cultures from all over the world, those who went to study, work, or immigrants.”

If, for some reason, you are not struck by the irony of this, try this snippet from Wikipedia for starters:
According to the CIA World Fact Book, 100% of Saudi Arabia’s citizens are Muslims.

The exit and entry visa cards ask applicants for their religious affiliation and officially bans entry to atheists, Jews or anyone with an official stamp from the State of Israel
