And, Islamic model works for no religion (not even for Islam)

Reader comment on item: Israeli Victory, Palestinian Prosperity
in response to reader comment: Western Model works for Most religions

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Aug 16, 2021 at 00:23

Dear Dr Pipes, Continuing on the topic about where the Western model works and where it does not, reader Steve said that the Western model works for most religions. Steve was implying that it was only for Muslims that the Western model did not work. As the world watches the events unfolding in Afghanistan, we can say one more thing: We can say that the Islamic model does not work for any one and any time. Today, citizens of Afghanistan are begging for shelter in every and any country that will give shelter to them. Today's news story is that after the Afghanistani President ran away to Tazakhistan, one of his senior advisors (and many other Afghans) took an Air India flight to fly away to New Delhi (they did not try to run away to Tehran or Saidi Arabia or Baghdad or Islamabad; they ran away to secular and Hindu India!!). And, we know that thousands of Afghanistani translators are trying to run away to USA.

Muslims ruled over India for nearly 700 years. In India we have hundreds of thousands of Muslims who are of Afghanistani, Persian, and Central Asian origin. So, during the centuries of Muslim rule in India, many Muslims of foreign origin made India home but there are hardly any examples of any Indians --even Muslims-- who left India and settled in any of the Muslim emirates of the past! By the way of contrast, Indians emigrated to United Kingdom in millions during and after the Britsih rule. If it were not for the oil boom, no human will ever go to an Islamic country to go and settle.

And, the Afghanistani catestrophe is brewing less than seven years after the Syrian catestrophe. rest of teh world takes centuries to brew the problems that Islam brew in less than a decade. The weight of the evidence is just too much to not say these things.

We should stop comparing Islam with Islam. We need to relentlessly compare Islam with any part of the rest of the humaniity. And, Islam will be proven inferior.

Can we all confer together and decide forever that Islam just does not work? It does not work for any one, Muslim or otherwise. I ask all Afghanistani people who are running helter skelter from Afghanistan if Islam worked for them (I know that apologies and excuses are ready from Muslims to answer my question but I will hear them before I rebut).
