Muslims Must Understand the Asymmetry of their Desires

Reader comment on item: The Swiss Ban on Minarets: A Possible Turning Point

Submitted by RLR in CO (United States), Nov 30, 2009 at 12:50

Will this at all open their eyes? Likely not. But until the average, peace-loving Muslim who descends from these various intolerant nations starts to push for such changes in their homelands, they will be met with skepticism from the West.
