Islamic polity must not be allowed to hide under the umbrella of a religion

Reader comment on item: Assessing Obama's Mosque Speech on Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama recognizes muslims as a political entity

Dear Dr Pipes,

Islam makes no differentiation between church and state. Thus, Islamic states get to enjoy the respect that we extend to religions for free. For example, we cannot question the political system of Saudi Arabia because it is also the political system of a religion. As a second example, I can easily question the methods and motives of various socialist/communist fighters around the world but we cannot question the methods and motives of Islamic separatists in any region of the world.

This must stop. In no forum of our world, Islamic polity must be allowed to hide under the umbrella of a religion.
