in response to reader comment: Why would Muslims even WANT to "fix their religion"

Dear Dr Pipes,

The reader Greg from Australia asks why would Muslims fix their religion when it brings them so many benefits. Muslims will fix their religion because good people of the world will force them to change their religion. The chorus of people all around the world against Islamic hypocrisy will get louder and louder every day and Muslims will need to respond.

Obama said somethings in Cairo eight years ago. Whatever President Obama did in the eight years of his term, we cannot deny that he made a small case for freedom in Cairo in 2009.

Then look at the difference! In 2017, President Trump made a stronger case for freedom in the Islamic world. Trump made his case not in Egypt but in KSA. And he did it more forcefully than Obama, He minced fewer words than Obama.

And people on social media are not mincing any words. President Trump said that the free countries do not want to impose our way of living on anyone. I will go to the extent of saying that that is exactly we need to do. We need to demand that to be equal members of the community of nations and to be equal members of human societies, Muslim nations and societies need to change their mindsets and make it more open minded and more democratic. There is no other way. It only makes sense that if a Syrian Muslim in trouble can go to Germany and DEMAND democratic rights then a German Christian in trouble --should that situation arise-- must be able to run to an Islamic country and GET democratic rights. Otherwise Muslim countries must accept that they are inferior.

That is how Muslims will need to fix their religion.
