"I can love you but you have to change" This logic works nowhere

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

First of all, we need to distinguish religion from politics. People usually feed their brains with the title of media news, what a pity for intelligent persons at 21st century. "diggerdeviant" says "Islam is in conflict with all of it's neighbours" Islam is not a country name. Nations fights due to either border problems or sharing natural resources. If the minds of ordinary people on the street think in the same way of politicians that means modern people are just consumer and manipulated easily by media and world peace in danger. Don't you have an ability to understand history and politics as good as a media reporter? "Islam is not modern" What does that mean? Any Muslim can use be good product consumer like any others? Machines are not designed according to religions. No need to be racist. I have no idea how this mind disease would be cured.

When someone says like Alain Jean-Mairet Islam needs reform we need to overview some facts. Islam has no facility like Church where people can overrule the law of Allah. No one can be allowed to change one word of Quran. Vatican can declares some issues like homosexuality or abortion as valid but this won't going to happen to Islam.

Human Development Index (HDI), is a comparative measure of poverty, literacy, education, life expectancy, and other factors for countries worldwide.
High human development:
Qatar :0.849, UAE : 0.849, Kuwait :0.844,
Medium human development:
Libya: 0.799, Malaysia : 0.796, Oman : 0.781, Thailand: 0.778
Saudi Arabia: 0.772: Tunisia 0.753, Turkey : 0.750, Iran : 0.736, Egypt : 0.659
Low human development:
Yemen : 0.489.
Muslims are not poor. Majority of Muslim countries have medium HDI. They will continue to develop. Religion is not a measurable quantity economically. But racist mind put religion at every measure. Muslims are not racist. Nothing can cure racism other than Islam. It is a gift for human mankind.

I still expect to read wise comments.
