Abdal Hakim Murad wrote:I think we all recognise that the Muslims have responded badly and largely unsuccessfully to the challenges of the twentieth century; in fact, of the last three centuries. Faced with the triumph of the West, we have not been able to work out which changes are inevitable, and which can be resisted...My own experience of Muslims has suggested that we are endlessly fascinated by short-term political issues, but are largely ignorant of the larger tendencies of which these issues are simply the passing manifestations.

Your problem is that you are stuck in the seventh century, because of your slavery to a book written then.

Fact. Islam has wrecked every country it controls so muslims prefer to live in the countries of unbelievers.

Until you do something about both of those points, nothing will change. Christianity realised this long ago and changed.
