Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

You must be kidding Freelancer when you wonder which Moslems are imposing their religion/culture on non-Moslems. Have you ever spoken to a non-Moslem in any Islamic country and asked them their opinion? Alonnehhob has made several valid points about the trials of living in an Islamic country, but you selectively chose only a couple of them which you could conveniently answer. If the wearing of a burqa is a women's prerogative and forcing them to remove it is disgusting, then so also must the ripping of crosses and Bibles which are then thrown into the garbage bin be equally disgusting if not more. That Moslem woman who voluntarily came to Canada should be grateful and learn to respect the culture of the country she adopted and not make them bend to her wishes. All westerners are forced to obey the laws and culture of the country they visit in the Moslem world, so why cant you Moslems? or do you people think you are above the law? Moslems have the luxury in the west or any Judeo-Christian country to refuse or demand that they not partake in any non-Islamic event. If a Christian or a Jew were to do the same it would be considered an insult to Islam and they would be thrown in jail and tortured.

Most Islamic countries during Ramadan prohibit drinking or eating in public for Moslems and non-Moslems alike, and if they do, they are put in jail till the rest of Ramadan Why are non-Moslem woman forced to wear burqas in countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran etc
So why should I as a non-Moslem be forced to follow the dictates of Islam. Why are thousands of Christians killed in the Sudan, Indonesia, Eritrea, and Nigeria for refusing to convert to Islam? If this is not forced imposition of religion/culture then I do not know what is in you warped sense Freelancer?

... Why is it ironic that no Islamic country in the world has true western type democracy (not even Turkey)
Islam is incompatible with democracy and enslaves and subjugates all those under its realm. There are some Moslems in this forum who dream like CAIR of making the United States of America Islamic. In other words, the United States would roll back more than 200 years of progress based on Judeo-Christian traditions and become a despotic third world dictatorship on par with Bangladesh or Sudan.
