An Oct. 30 letter to the editor asked the question, “What if the pilgrims were Muslim instead of Christian? What would this wonderful country be like?”
The answer isn’t really hard, this country would be like the Arab countries in the Middle East.
Carol McGinnis, Gilbert
There are more than one billion Muslims in the world today. They are concentrated in Africa and Southeast Asia. If you reflect on these countries, you could project that vision back to earlier times. Islam has been around since the 7th Century. My vision says that we would be a third world country with a theocracy led government. As with all religious sects, they are slow to change and Sharia Law would be the law of the land. As with all religions, they are very dictatorial.
