Poor Debanjan always putting the cart before the horse.

in response to reader comment: ISLAM NEEDS OWN MODEL AND WESTERN MODEL DOES NOT WORK

Submitted by Peter Hall (Australia), Aug 24, 2021 at 05:08

Dear Debanjan, you seem to have your conclusions the wrong way around, The true question is why West Asian, or Muslim culture, constantly fail? Every single Muslim and west Asian culture is a failure, where countries that adopt a "Western" culture, are successful, just look at Japan, Singapore, South Korea, New Zealand etc etc etc, they all have adopted a Western Culture, made it their own and been successful. Where West Asian, and Muslim cultures are all failures, there are no exceptions. The only exceptions are the few very rich oil rich countries that do not require a population that thinks, acts or works like a successful culture needs to act. But the oil revenues only can insulate for so long before the same factors, which is a indigenous failed cultural mentality, takes its toll and drags back the West Asian and Muslim countries into the mess that they all are. Your experiences and failures in the West should of shown you the obvious truth, your lack of insight to the cause of the failures of West Asian and Muslim peoples and trying to blame the West is illustrative of why those cultures continue to fail, no matter how much advanced cultures try and rehabilitate them. Islam has had 1400 years to develop a model that works, and has failed for 1400 years.
