Dear Dr Pipes:

With his remarkable academic background, it is unlikely that Kenneth Roth is illogical or unintelligent. His stands regarding Israel might be compromised due to ideological reasons, financial selfishness, or ignorance. Some tough questions must be asked people like him so genuine debates can take place and true reasons behind actions and opinions may be discovered.

How does Mr Roth justify the existence of the Islamic theocracies in the world? If 100 Islamic states in the world openly and shamelessly advance and protect Islam, why it is wrong for other nations to dump democracy and advance some religion of there choice. To put it bluntly, why is it wrong for the free countries to discriminate against Muslims and Islam.

I ask this question here again and again because, I want this question to become everyone's question. Someone somewhere will get enough courage to ask Islamic apologists this question face to face.

The apologists may have some genuine answers, but they must be forced to give these answers. We should not answer for them.
