Well the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan,

you are not as informed about Islam as you think. Look beyond the feed from media and find out the Sufi way of Islam which considers every human life sacred.

Second thing, you can not tell people to live according to your values even if they live in past. Who authorizes you to tell a free human, how to live? the battle is in minds. if you think that they should live modern live which you might call rational, you sound as Taliban to me as the people who are there on ground. by the way rationality is subjective.

I wonder what is bad about accepting things from other civilizations? you want to block exchange between civilzation or you promote package exchange of thing. Do not forget that it was under Muslim rule that the West progressed. Today the west is not sharing its technology fearing competition. Is it good for humanity?
