in response to reader comment: foolish thoughts

But please do not do it in a country where it cannot function properly. There are many, many Islamic countries, where Islam, where Sharia thrive. Please do not come to the west and expect to practice your Islamic social system, your Islamic culture, your Islamic political ideology, your Islamic lifestyle, your Islamic civil code. It cannot function properly here. Here we have entirely different social systems. In the West, our culture, both Christian and post-Christian have completely different values. We do not value revenge, honor, outward displays of piety. We honor peace, forgiveness, love, hard work.
