in response to reader comment: HOW TO AVOID A LOOMING CATASTROPHY

Mohd Mohd, why can't Muslims become Christians ,or Jews. or Buddhists or anything else they wish? Why is Muslim society closed off to all other influences? Is it because Islam is so flawed and evil that it can not compete with other religions that celebrate life and not death? Apparently Islam can not stand in the light of day and must close itself off and threaten its members with death if they wish to advance into a more enlightened religion. Apparently Muslims can convert as was seen recently in Afganistan. If Islam is so wonderful, why keep terrorizing its members? Why not allow churches and synagogues and all religions access to the peoples of the Islamic world? Why not allow Christian missionaries access to Saudi Arabia and guarantee their safety and see if people living under Islam would not wish to embrace something a little more life sustaining and spiritual? Islam degades women, loves slavery, glorifies death. Perhaps opening these societies to religions with real spirituality might bring an end to the tyranny known as Islam and perhaps that is why Islamic nations close themselves off from the rest of the world.

I find it odd that people with the absolute worst systems, Nazis, Communists, and Islamists find it so necessary to spread their horrid systems to the rest of the world.
