Only the Natives Understand Islam

In my article Islam to Blame for Barbarism Not Culture I noted that Muslims and their apologists offer many excuses for Muslim atrocities: it's not Islam at fault it is the culture, the ethnic group, the political system, the geographic area, whatever.

Now comes before us reader Nadeem who in response to my article Why Do Muslims Abuse Women? tells us that we cannot judge or comment on what is happening in Pakistan because:

Have you ever been to Pakistan? If Not then isn't it talking about a place that you don't know jack about Personally. Like you have no personal experience of what the place is like and yet you comment and make assumptions. AMAZING...


So now we have a new excuse: if you don't live there you cannot blame Islam because you cannot understand a possibly alternative reason for what in your eyes appears to be a savage, brutal atrocity. If only you visited or lived there you would readily see how wrong you are about Islam and its followers.

Well, my itinerant friend, I have traveled to many countries and hundreds and hundreds of foreign cities (1) and spoken with the natives in their own language in more than a dozen countries and I can tell you that despite all that, as educational and enlightening as the experience might have been, all that visiting and talking has exposed me to less than a tenth of one percent of our planet. I believe I have learned more about the world from reading foreign newspapers for more than 45 years than spending a few months or years abroad.

But living in Pakistan for 50 years and only in Pakistan, blinds a person to the evil under which he is living. This applies not just to Pakistanis: there are Canadians, for example, who do not know they are living under an oppressive system of government. I cannot write what I write in my blog if I were living in Canada without getting arrested and put in jail. The same for most of the rest of the world.

In countries with socialized medicine I cannot legally choose whatever medical treatment I want; I have to take whatever they deign to give me.

I have a very distant cousin living in Poland who I have tried for years to persuade to come to America, at least for a visit if not to live. His response? "What does America have that Poland does not?" Ahhh, lived all his life in Poland and completely clueless.

Most foreigners do not know how repressive their economic systems are. I have set up telecommunications operations in many parts of the world and I needed to ask government permission and in some cases pay off corrupt officials to get my operation started. In America, there is nothing that you cannot do if you have the skill and the will. In most countries I deal with I am forced to get a local partner to be at least a 50% owner in order to do business in that country, once I pass countless, pointless, ridiculous bureaucratic hurdles.

And while I personally cannot go to Pakistan for fear of my life, I have a number of friends and associates who do business there, have been there numerous times, and have even engaged in illegal activities there, and who have shared some of their insights into the country with me. In addition, I have no doubt that I have read more newspaper articles (translated into English) about Pakistan than the average Pakistani has in his lifetime.

So your complaint that I should not make a comment if I have no personal experience of the place, would limit me to a very small, tiny, teeny portion of the world. Perhaps, dear Nadeem, you would prefer infidel newspapers not to report on anything involving Muslims at all since they cannot truly understand or appreciate the cultural, ethnic, geographical aspects of the events they are reporting.

Perhaps the non-Muslim world should just turn a blind eye to the following reports because there is probably some good non-Islamic reason behind them. Please note this report is only for the past 60 days, and only what was reported ( many tens of thousands of other attacks against women and infidels go unreported), and anyway if I were forced to list every Muslim atrocity since 2000 it would constipate my server with the data overload:

Oh, and before you try to excuse the attacks in Iraq saying that it's all because we invaded the country, please be advised that if I listed Muslim atrocities in Iraq before the US invaded there would have been even more listings. The US presence has saved hundreds of thousands of lives in Iraq. Be grateful.

But be straight with me here, Nadeem, even without personally visiting every single one of the cities above, shouldn't this tiny glimpse of things Islamic give me some reason to make certain assumptions about Islam? Eh? Shouldn't I be able to know that there is a lot of sand in Saudi Arabia without getting on a camel and trekking across the desert?
