Focus of Evil.

Reader comment on item: Bernard Lewis and Me
in response to reader comment: Lewis never recognized islam's true nature

Submitted by Reynald de Chatillon (United States), May 24, 2018 at 04:19

While I concur with most of Uncle Vladdi's comments regarding Islam, he did omit a number of other issues relating to Muslim communities such as: child brides, polygamy, FGM (female genital mutilation), honour killings, intolerance of other religions. Need I say more? All these things were largely unknown in my country until the large influx of Muslim immigrants. Ronald Reagan once described the Soviet Union as the "focus of evil in the modern world". The same words could also be applicable to Islam today, perhaps even more so.
