Did you say Islam is like (similar to)Christianity and Judaism ?

Reader comment on item: The Dobbs List: "Militant Islam Reaches America"

<faith of a billion people>>

Daniel, I have a list of 38 Muslim states, only one, Turkey, is a democracy. I have a list of 22 Arab states none is a democracy. I learned from you years ago why that is. (there is no work for a legislature to do in Muslim countries since all the laws governing Mankind have already been promulgated and are there for all to see in the Q'oran.)

So it seems Islam is a political system as well as a religion. Very unlike Christianity and Judaism.

On another issue I want to congratulate you for your persistance and hard work in getting many in America's elites to realize the peril of Islamism. Islamist and Islamism were words that were shunned by all "right-thinking" people as being too close to "Islam" for comfort and smacked of religious discrimination.

Now I see that those two words are used regularly in the media wihtout a blush. I do think that your many, many articles and many interviews are resposible for this realization.

Congratulation again and many good wishes,

Saul Pfeffer
