Reader comment on item: Westerners Welcome Harems
in response to reader comment: Similarity of Tolerance of Slavery with Tolerance of Polygamy

Submitted by Ralph Ekwall (United States), Mar 26, 2009 at 21:00

The idea that Islam will some day be accepted throughout the world is a fantasy. Take a look at the Islamic nations and then look at some data on the standard of living in Islamic countries compared to those in non-Islamic countries.

The people of the world are looking for progress, democracy, freedom and a decent standard of living. None of these things are found in Islamic countries.
