Revisiting The Challenge of Islam That is Still Unanswered

Reader comment on item: [Ex-Muslims:] The Challenge to Islam It Has Never Faced
in response to reader comment: Why Islam Cannot Accept the Defeat of the Challenge They've Already Lost

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Feb 14, 2022 at 17:54

We read elsewhere in this forum of a new venue for the different direction in the study of Islam in the Western frame of reference and the question is posed: if Islam cannot grow in predominantly Muslim nations, is that why Islam's only place to grow is in teh west?
How many times have we read in Dr. Pipes' postulations of western conferences or congregations of Muslims adherents (like those of the 'squad' in American political circles) of how they attempt to challenge western mores, only to find that in the reluctance of western civilization to openly adopt such radical apolitical rationalizations of a dominant attitude for the lack of the freedoms such thinking confronts, is it the idea of free thinking ideals are actually antithetical to Islamic rationale? How does Islam confront freedom?
