Afghanistan New Flashpoint to Reinvigorated Claims of Islamic Supremacy

Reader comment on item: The Perilous Path from Muslim to Christian
in response to reader comment: Dear Afghan people consider Christianity, Hinduism, and Judaism

In view of the highly prejudicial change of guard of Afghani politics (make no mistake, this is a hostile takeover not too much different than when the Shah of Iran was unceremoniously replaced), the Iranian Islamic Regime's muted elation is only surpassed by the projections of the sympathetic Hizbollah and fire-bombing antics of Hamas as they are emboldened to no limited extent. What this poses is a question that is embraced by Reader Prashant; the Afghani ex-pats; are they a looking to seek peace in a non-Muslim environment; or are they merging with the known situation of exporting a new-found encouragement to do in other places what the Taliban did in Afghanistan.
Of the other potential religious persuasions that are at risk at attempting to worship in peace, is this not what Islam seeks to stop? Of course it is: but what will be seen if the attempt to stop non-Muslim affinities reaches new intensities and the furor overflows.
Seeking refuge for the Christian influences will be the hardest to ascertain how this will shake out, but the one place that will be the hardest to determine if peace will result in resettling some in America is whether Christianity in America will be the same after losing Afghanistan to Islam; again.
