    Let us ask Hilarion Alfeyev to go there. He knows so well how to coexist with Muslims.

    We keep referring to Islamic extremists. Read the Koran fully and Sharia and to many in Islam this is extreme but normal and required to control all others. Time we learned this is the norm of Islam created by a brutal man who also was child molester and who believes in the abuse of women. Look at their rules and check out Saudi Arabia. Tell me of religious freedom there. Hope you print this.
