Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn
in response to reader comment: not the smartest starting point

Susan, I had good things to say about former Turkish Prime Ministers and Presidents because at times they went against Islam for the greater good. After all, what we are talking about is the closing of Mosques and schools when what is coming out of them resembles "the protocols of the elders of Zion". For, when you look at what is allowed under Islam, there is a lot that is antithetical to the dignity accorded to each person. Which is the best hallmark of the West.

So, what I am saying, Susan is this: Turkey, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, China, and other countries who do not want to know about the dignity of the individual, that they be replaced by preparatory regimes. And at the same time, those schools, media outlets, and mosques which do not affirm the dignity of the individual, that they be closed until such time that they affirm the dignity of the individual. If it involves changing mosques into churches, then so be it.
