Dear Dr Pipes: The argument that people should read about Islam before criticizing Islamist policies is hollow for one more reason that is not mentioned often. Muslims in general and Islamic literature in particular goes about bragging that their way of worship and life is the only correct way of worship and life. There is little evidence that the people who compiled the Islamic code did a scholarly reading of the codes of other religions. I doubt that the most of the modern day muslims have read about other religions (or even their own religion) but they do not stop bragging how great Islam is. Muslims should return the favor that theyperpetually ask from others.
