in response to reader comment: Its ok for Jews and Christians but not Muslims

One law for Jews and Christians and another for Muslims, eh? You're dead right there because if a Muslim converts to any other religion he is to be put to death. You are lucky you are a westerner, "convert", where traitors are not executed. You'd be in a right pickle if you were a traitor in a Muslim country. It is neither Jews not Christians--nor anyone else for that matter, vile Nazis included (whom the Arabs supported in WW 2)--who send children across minefields and send to their deaths as suicide bombers.

Anywhere in the West, you can buy a Koran, or anything else you wish to read; Israel being the only country in the Middle East where that is possible. Try buying a Bible or anything which disagrees with Islam in Muslim countries! You are dead right, convert to a religion which is openly misogynistic, there is a law for everyone else and a law for the Muslims--according to the Koran and we see it practised every day. Think yourself fortunate that you live in the West where most people are ignorant of what the Koran teaches.

If most Westerners did know what it contains there would be such universal outrage that people would demand a far tougher stance against Islam. They would consider "converts" to be lunatics. I don't know about America, but it's happening here in Britain and in France --mainly among people who are irreligious and even atheistic. People are beginning to see what happens when Islam rules--ta, ta decomcracy and ta ta freedom of speach.
