When religious freedom is addressed in Pakistan, Egypt, Iran, Turkey and other Islamic countries, then Muslims desire for religious freedom will be legitimate. Otherwise, its "freedom applies to me, but not to you."

I sincerely welcome them to the fight, and wish them all the success in the world.

Do you really believe that all Muslims have illegitimate desires for freedom of religion? What does there have to be done for you to "well wish" any religion, even one you obviously do not agree with, to deisre religious freedom?

Just because the leadership in Pakistan, Egypt, Iran, and other Islamic countries do not give unfettered freedom of religion, does not mean that the people, or organizations touting so, do not have the honorable right to want freedom of religion.

That desire should be unconditionally supported!
