Criticizing Islam should not be a crime.

Reader comment on item: Israelis Insult Islam, Face Criminal Charges

Dear Dr Pipes

, by its own admission, Islam knows no difference between the church and state. So in addition to being a religion, it is also a political movement or party. Islam cannot avail all protections that we offer to religions. Criticizing Islam should not be a crime.
