Burden is not on us to read Islam

Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?
in response to reader comment: REFORMS

Dear Dr Pipes,

this message is for the people who tell non-Muslims to read Quran and learn what a great peaceful religion Islam is. Actually, the burden of reading Quran in details is not and should not be on non-Muslims. The non-Muslims learn about Islam by watching the actions of Muslims. When Islamic terrorists committing cruel crimes, as typical Muslim apologist gets away by saying that these guys are not true Muslims. Well, that apology is not good enough for the rest of the world. Even if we grant that the people who commit the crimes are not true Muslims, we wonder who finances these people. Are the people who finance these criminals, non-Muslims? So we will let Muslims read the Quran. We will judge Islam by the actions of the Muslims.
