The answer is blowing in the wind

in response to reader comment: what values?

Mariam's { Mary of Islam } bellicose post belies the spirit of that sacred name. Her mind-trap is sadly ' classic fundamental Muslim prejudice ', rife with an extravagant righteousness, oozing intolerance.

One needs to ask, is Islam so weak of resolve, so shallow of conviction, so devoid of free spirit, so hallow of faith that shining any light into the dark recesses of the Mohammedan screed will ultimately be met with a vicious backlash ? Any criticism of the ' carved-in-stone ' dogma will incite the wrath of righteous indignation, and consequently must be exempted from the discourse of a free society.

The sacrosanctity of Islam, swaddled in a veil of see, speak, hear no evil as long as the correct book is being read, is foreign to modernity and is not universally accepted. You see we have no ' compulsion ' of religion, and your laws of blasphemy are certainly not ours... Cope with it !!!!
