Muslims have RIGHTS | ISLAM does NOT

Story thanks to Trump is Right.

If you can criticise aspects of mainstream Christian belief but you are not allowed to fairly criticise aspects of mainstream Islamic belief for fear of violence, then that is a huge problem. If saying something like "believing in any of the mainstream religions is irrational" causes violence from one group (Muslims), then that is a problem. If the threats of violence only come from radical groups then that is a lesser problem.

In places like Syria we find moderate multi-faith societies. However, if this is because of curtailed freedom of speech then such a society is not really compatible with open Western secular society.
