Khomeini should accept that Islam is unsustainable

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: What took so long for dictatorship-mullahcracy to blame the infidels?

Dear Dr Pipes, Reader Terry posted the news that Ayatollah Khomeini blamed the United States and Israel for the women's protests in Iran. Rather than blaming others, Khomeini must admit that Islam in its current form is unsustainable.

We live in a very competitive world. Individuals, organizations, and governments have to constantly remain on their toes to survive and stay competitive. Honestly, today's men and women cannot stop everything to pray five times a day. Today's children cannot spend two or three of their formative years in rote-learning of religious scriptures. Today's cities cannot disrupt their traffics for several hours every Friday so Muslims can hold public congregations.
Today's informed dhimmis are also not so docile and helpless that they will accept Islamic laws without a challenge.

Denying repeated evidence to the contrary and sticking to your beliefs, is insanity. Khomeini, with his enormous power, must find ways to make Islam more sustainable for the current world. In its current form, Islam will continue to face challenges of all kinds.
