Dear Dr Pipes:

Peter Herz hopes that Islamic societies will some day show signs of treating their minorities well. Peter's hope is right on the target. Sooner and later the Islamic societies will realize that no country can prosper until it treats its minorities well (because if you allow illegal persecution of minorities, you do not know where to stop-- if killing some is ok then why is killing all not ok). And sooner and later these societies will also realize that no matter how much they convince themselves that they treat their minorities well, the truth is that they do not. No country can be 98% monolithic, without some force somewhere. Many muslim countries are 98% or more Islamic.
