Either with us or against us

How much longer can a left that claims to stand for multiculturalism, diversity, pluralism and tolerance and against racism, prejudice and bigotry let hatred like this go unanswered?

Allaah (swt) orders the believers to hate all other religions, way of lives, creeds, doctrines and beliefs that contradict with Islaam, and one cannot be Muslim without to declare animosity and hatred towards kufr, bid'ah, shirk and nifaaq (Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Democracy, Freedom etc.).
via Melanie Phillips, whom I usually disagree with, but this is something no decent person can ignore.

The left can use colonialism and Israel as excuses to ignore anti-Christian, anti-Jewish and anti-liberal-democratic sentiment; it can even use Kashmir and the Gujarat massacre as reasons to dismiss hatred of Hindus. But what possible justification can the left have to ignore Muslim hatred of Sikhs and Buddhists?

Good western liberals, why does your loudly proclaimed sympathy for the poor brown masses of the world go silent when Islamic terrorists kill Hindus, Filipinos or, hell, Buddhist monks in southern Thailand? How come your anger finds its voice only when the suffering of the poor brown masses can be traced, however circuitously, to the West and especially to the United States? Is your sympathy sincere or are these people nothing more than a useful source of charges against the West?

Which is it? Are you with the poor, brown-skinned people of the developing world or against them?
