Western (or otherwise) freedom is a two way street

Reader comment on item: Europeans Fleeing Eurabia

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Nov 30, 2012 at 02:27

Dear Dr Pipes,

The freedom that Islamists use to propagate their religion and politics, makes a two way street. It is the duty of every freedom loving person to criticize the state of affairs in Islamic nations. Keeping quiet is not an option. Neutrality is not an option. And, pushing the truth under the rug is also not an option. We need to relentlessly question why in every Islamic country 98% of the population is Muslim. We need to question why preaching of other religions is so difficult in Islamic countries. We need to ask why women cannot drive in Saudi Arabia. We need to ask why so many bomb blasts occur in the countries where 98% of the population is uniformly Islamic.

We need to ask why Shias and Sunnis fight on an immaterial issue that happened centuries ago. We need to ask why men can dress comfortably on the street but women have to bundle up to defend themselves from the same men. We need to ask why men can marry four women but women cannot marry four men. We need to ask why monogamy is not the only legal way. We need to ask why in every country of the world where Muslims constitute a minority, they are also involved in endless fights with everyone else. We need to ask that if Jesus and Moses are prophets, how come their followers are Kaffars. The list of such questions is endless but we need to ask these questions relentlessly.
