When will they learn to co-exist ???

Reader comment on item: [Fixing] Islam's Image Problem

Submitted by SD (India), Dec 24, 2005 at 05:21

Islam, in the words of many Muslim Clerics is "incompatible" with western / modern ideologies. It is fundamentaly different to such an extent that there is no room for co-existance with other cultures and religions. This is sad.... in this global era where everything is wired and rational thinking has taken precedence over minor ethnic disagreements, Islam still fights the same fight they have been fighting for centuries : to convert the world to Islam or else subjugate nonmuslims to harsh penalties. History shows that such separatist ideals lead to catastrophe and one can see today that many muslim countries are reeling under poverty, illiteracy, corrupt dictators and wily Mullah's.
