The cause of all these ailments is the absolute freedom granted to man under the umbrella of the Western civilization.
A lot of the rest makes sense for a diagnosis, but then he is quoting a lot. But the above quote is telling. In any event, Arabs have very little to teach the West. Maybe nothing.
Badmouthing freedom is easy. Not understanding the personal and societal responsibilites that come with freedom is the Huge blind spot of these clerics.
For westerners to look to the Arab Muslims to learn the proper way to live makes as much sense as something I read in a report concerning the two young men convicted of killing Michael Jordan's father. One of them in testifying against the other said that his companion told him that during his last prison sentence he had "learned to commit crimes without getting caught." Yep, if you can learn not to get caught from teachers who are in prison after obviously getting caught then you can learn the proper way to live from people who worship death. The comparison may be a bit strained but I think it is valid. The only thing the Muslims can teach us is not to do as they do.
