One Good Deed Deserves Another

Mark Steyn sums up his article concerning the Western/Sharia culture clash with a quote from General Sir Charles Napier. Napier addressed the Hindu practice of "suttee" -- the tradition of burning widows on the funeral pyres of their husbands.

"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: When men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours."

(H.T. The Discerning Texan.)
