A Peaceful Muslim Country (oh my)

Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose

Submitted by moderate Muslim (United States), Mar 11, 2007 at 21:21

What's this "we" stuff you keep talking about? "We" don't need to do anything. It is the Muslims who must shed their arrogance and ignorance, admit that their religion is all screwed up, and commit to reform. That is a pre-condition to any meaningful progress and cannot be set aside or glossed over.

I'll go you half way. Muslims need to stop pretending that their isnt a problem, admit that that people (note people) are subverting Islam, and commit to reform (reform meaning to change the laws discriminating against women and Christians, and work towards advancement of Islam and a better tomorrow. Reform does not mean to change the Quran or the Sunnah, which gives women and Christians, and Jews rights.

Note: The guy who created this website believes that Muslims can fix the people within their religion and that they are moderates. Even Daniel Pipes does not advocate destruction of a religion.

You said:

Once again I challenge you to prove this absurd! If what you say is true, you should easily be able to point out to me an Islamic country that grants equal rights to all religions, that respects other cultures, that does not supress education and free speech.

Wait for it

Wait for it

Wait for it

Malaysia

Yeah

Like the one in South East Asia

Malaysia

Look for yourself

No terrorists

No civil wars

Women are treated well

Other religions (especially Buddhists) are treated well

So WHAT NOW

to quote Dave Chapelle (who you guys loved before you realized he was Muslim)

THATS RIGHT
