Reciprocate Muslims Intimidation in Kind

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict

Submitted by Jaladhi (United States), Sep 26, 2006 at 10:23

You conclude your article by saying: "The basic message"You Westerners no longer have the privilege to say what you will about Islam, the Prophet, and the Qur'an, Islamic law rules you too" – will return again and again until Westerners either do submit or Muslims realize their effort has failed."

The question is why the West should submit to Islam instead of fighting it tooth and nail. Muslims will not realize their efforts have failed unless and until the non-Muslims fight back this monstrosity with full vigor. A bully only understands the language of intimidation and violence and not any peaceful discussions and compromises.
