Just to stay on topic. This discussion, if you wish to call it that, was about religion, not about state or government decisions. I am not going to say that decisions made by western governements are correct, they are not at times, but they are not based on religion. That is the point.

Freewill only exists where you have a free choice - islam does not allow that -
There are muslims who are born and brought up in muslim countries and still reject islam and go on to do the things that Islam prohibits.
And yes, there are islamic regimes who harshly enforce Islamic law.
But Islam itself teaches this regarding free choice....
“If it had been your Lord’s will, all of the people on Earth would have believed. Would you then compel the people so to have them believe?” -(Quran 10:99)

OP, did you know that there is an Obelisk in the Vatican? Did you know that they stand around it and hold services by its "feet"?
Why do they do that ? Are they that fond of obelisks ?
I would appreciate more information or more references to study.
