Conversion into Islam vs Judaism

Dear Dr Pipes, I believe that non-proselityzing religions like Hinduism and Judaism (and even Yezidiism) should try to relax their requirements for people's conversion to their religions and seek as many Muslim converts as possible. I believe that if monotheism is what a person is looking for, logical, clear, and humane Judaism is a lot better option than Islam which can be ambiguous, selfish and harsh.

Islamic steps to convert a person to Islam are greedy and ridiculously simple: reciting a simple sentence whose meaning you don't understand can make you a Muslim. Converting into Judaism should not be as superfluous as that but should not be much more difficult either.

I am saying this because Muslims in Israel are not going to go anywhere. The only hope for free people is to change Muslims' way of thinking. Changing Islam is an option. Converting a Muslim to the free side is the better and easier option. We should be made as simple as possible.
