From an Islamic point of view

Reader comment on item: "A Corrective to the Pipes Worldview"?

Submitted by Arun (United States), Aug 30, 2005 at 16:34

But rather than show me wrong, they argue that converting the world to one's point of view is widespread and "a natural human desire," so why get excited?

- Islamists are not trying to convert the world to their point of view not because it is a natural human desire, but because that is what they believe is the Will of Allah. Our secular law is set up to deal with natural human desires but not with self-declared Instruments of God.
