A lack of clarity

Reader comment on item: Ten Percent of Muslims Call for Niqabs or Burqas
in response to reader comment: Only 10% want it?...It's settled then!

You are confused - on number of issues:

"In today's Islam it is abundantly clear that 10% rules the remainder by brutality and the enforcement of irrational islamism."

!? Where? One can only find case of a "religious led/influenced" governments in countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran - otherwise the hardcore religous are as a power minority.

For example in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Qatar, UAE, Tajikistan . . . religion is a feature but they are not really led by religious thought. I would even argue Saudi [despite its unique position among Muslims] isn't either - as their main focus is maintaining the traditional monarchy.

- -

"Only in secular moslem Nations such as Egypt is there even a modicum of rational thought."

There is no real secular [as understood in the West - complete separation of State and Religion] Muslim-majority government.

- -

"Consider that rational thinking is what the Liberal mind despises on all fronts in favour of irrationality."

!!! ???

- -

"Mohammed Deedats Islamic youth crusades were certainly effective in radicalising Moslem youth in the western and middle eastern nations."

!!! ???
