Here is an easy problem for your reader Jeff

Reader comment on item: Islamic London: "Run, Hide, Tell"
in response to reader comment: Keep calm and carry on

Dear Dr Pipes, Responding to your blog about Islamic London, your reader Jeff said that the problem is too big for him to solve and he would rather keep his mouth shut than be called a racist. Jeff should try to solve an easier problem for which no one would call him a racist. Here is the problem to solve: We all love democracy. Muslims living in secular democracies, in particular, love democracy. So what is good for goose must also be good for the gander. How about Jeff demands that every Islamic country on this planet becomes a pluralistic democracy. You see, visitor to Egypt and KSA, for example, deserve the same rights that Muslim visitors to western democracies take for granted. If you make this demand people might call you a lunatic for demanding an impossible thing but no one will call you a racist. And, with time, no one will call you a lunatic either. Insha Allah.

So, do not keep calm and carry on. In stead demand the right thing.
