Reader comment on item: Islamist Turkey vs. Secular Iran?

Submitted by Barry Black (United States), Dec 9, 2010 at 16:08

Holy Toledo----chill out you guys. I was only referring to that one aspect of Islam that permits civil and some criminal disputes to be settled between parties without the need for lawyers and courts. Yes, some aspect of western law does allow for that, but you must still go through a mandated judicial proceeding to acknowledge the agreement or you are in violation of law. Under Islam they prefer you to settle and leave the lawyers and courts out of it altogether! As for Islam in total----it's one contemptible social philosophy!
