But that would mean ripping up 1400 years of Islamic jurisprudence and tradition, so that’s a moot subject.
How Best to Fight the ‘Islamophobia Industry’

In my own “letter of goodwill” (“How best to fight Islamophobia,” Hürriyet Daily News, April 6, 2012) I wrote the following:
Your most strategic partners in the fight against Islamophobia are not Christians, but your fellow Muslims.
If Muslims stopped killing other Muslims because they belong to a different sect; stopped forcing their chosen practices on other Muslims; tolerated less pious Muslims; did not feel enraged if other Muslims did not abstain from alcohol or pork, or did not attend the mosque; did not kill men, women and children because they adhered to other faiths; did not blame rape on the length of a woman’s skirt; did not murder their own wives because they spoke to strangers, or their daughters because they flirted with boys or because they were raped by rascals; did not wish to start World War III because some maverick cartoonist drew blasphemous caricatures; did not issue death fatwas because an author wrote a blasphemous book; or did not aim to spread their religion to the entire world, by the sword if necessary, then fighting Islamophobia would be much easier.
