Reader comment on item: Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam
in response to reader comment: Lucas only ignorants will attack Islam by using the wrong deeds of some muslims!

Indeed, the fact that Islam cannot be divided into the private and the public is the root of the problem.
There are those who do believe it is possible - Bassam Tibi, for one, though personally I (like you) am pessimistic. Secondly I personally know Muslims for whom their religion is private - but, like you, I believe that this is in fact a blasphemous form of Islam.

The form of Sharia practiced in Pakistan is a "soft and cuddly" form of Sharia -
the law of Iran is much more strict - and women can be stoned to death there:

You should pick examples of countries that follow Sharia, Hassan, not those who do not.

In what way does the Supreme Court of Pakistan not understand Sharia Hassan? Are you honestly saying that Supreme Court Judges with 40 and 50 years experience are an "uneducated" "illiterate" "tribal group"? Less racism please.

Perhaps you should inform them that their interpretation of Sharia is incorrect - if you are lucky, you may not even be killed for blasphemy.

If you really want me to Hassan, I will give you a full list of the offences commited under Sharia.
