Looking at islam

Reader comment on item: Columbia University vs. America

Dear Daniel

We have to take a hard look at islam. As follows:
Whether Islam brought progress to the Bedouins (and even their women) of the 7th century or not is of no concern today. We are not living in the 7th century. We have to look at the actual performance of Islam in the 21st century. And this reveals that Islam is the jahiliya (=ignorance and barbarism) of the 21st century and is destined to remain so. If you ask a Muslim embarrassing questions about Islam then he will start telling you about how great Islam was in the 7th century - but we are not living in the 7th century. ..
