Letter: Military action in Sarajevo: false parallels, other cities and deadly claims

The Independent Online
Sir: Ahmed Versi, editor of the Muslim News, writes, concerning the slaughter in Sarajevo (Letters, 8 February), that 'the West has no stomach for killing its white Christian brethren' and proposes either of two solutions: conversion en masse to Christianity or united action by Muslim countries to break the arms embargo on Bosnia.

Do the same solutions apply to Afghanistan, where a war of similar intensity is taking place? Or in Sudan where Muslims slaughter Christians and other non-Muslims on a similar scale to that of Bosnia?

Yours faithfully,
