" It just takes time. For instance, Hindus in India protest and riot at similar alleged insults to their religion - a recent incident being this last Valentines Day. Of course, that's not as "sexy" as an Muslim riot, so you didn't hear much about it."

Why are you dragging Hindu India into this and the protest against valentine's day is childs play compared with the ugly and violent intifada of the muslims in France on burkkhaa issue. The word is not sexy but ugly or barbaric. I have posted a detailed comment dated 2/4/08 on India and Pakistan under the article Resisting Islamic Law; please read it to understand the mess Islam has driven you into.

You mentioned Turkey. It was secularised by Khemal Attaturk, who banned burkhaa and the hold of the imams on the people. With Erdogan and a shrinking Christian population, Islamists are rearing their ugly heads once again and the democracy in Turkey is an ICU case. There is no democractic country in the world which is predominantly muslim; Koraan is incompatible with democracy, fundamental rights, constitution, independent judiciary etc.

One thing that surprises me is Safraz, who is well educated and in USA can not see the problem clearly and making continued attempts to cover the problem. Does it mean that Islam can never be reformed?
