Logic defies Mr Debanjan Banerjee again

Reader comment on item: Why Palestinians Need an Israel Victory
in response to reader comment: You endanger the liberal Muslim women

Submitted by Prashant, Apr 4, 2018 at 23:20

Dear Dr Pipes, Many times your reader Debanjan Banerjee has presented arguments that completely defy logic. Here is one more from his April 3, 2018 correspondence with you. Mr Banerjee says, "To the overwhelming Muslim public in general , it seems a crude and vile hypocrisy when the West supports education for Muslim girls at one hand and on the other hand restricts the immigration of Muslim refugees to the West when it was the Western-led wars that led to this Muslim refugee problem in the first place (Israel is also contributing to this problem by closing her doors to African and Palestinian refugees)".

Mr Banerjee's statement makes no logical sense. What Mr Banerjee is saying is that if the West starts a war in Islamic nations then unless the West accepts refugees from Islamic nations it loses its rights to suggest that Islamic nations educate there women.

If this is not complete gibberish then what is?

No, it is not the West's obligation to accept Islamic refugees. The wounds of the Islamic world are 100% self-inflicted. To put it very bluntly, In the last 1400 years, Islamic world has persistently and stubbornly made a habit of suppressing people's ability to think an act freely. Now the Islamic chickens are coming back to roost. The sooner the Islamic world accepts that it has chosen wrong methods of day to day governance of society, the sooner peace will come to the Islamic world.
