in response to reader comment: Why they don't like Christianity

Dear Dr. Pipes, your reader Lisa D, correctly described that Islam does not like Christianity because Islam hates everything that is not Islamic.

Muhammad did lots of calculations right (for his selfish purpose) but he forgot that flexibility is a virtue and stubbornness is a curse. The more he tried to define things precisely, the more he trapped himself in rules that he could not follow himself (just check the Quranic verses that he produced on the fly to marry more and more women).

And, finally, to protect Islam as the last unchangeable word of God, his followers committed themselves to a converging spirals from where there is no escape except murders, subjugation, torture, and poverty (just check the events in Afghanistan, Syria, Nigeria, Iran and Iraq).

Muslims need to do self-reflection. Blaming others 24x7 will take them nowhere.
