Dear Dr. Pipes: A lot of people ridiculed Mansoor's comparison between burqa and helmet. Just in case Mansoor truly believes what he said, I am wondering if he would like to eat dinner in a restaurant where lots of people have their helmets on.

The desire to defend islamic practices, cultures and customes at all cost is Muslim's Achilles' heel.
