Five Questions

This syndicated radio fellow by the name of Dennis Prager in the LA Times, wrote an interesting article asking 5 questions that he asks Muslims to answer. Although I don't necessarily agree with everything in his article, it is pretty interesting. He seems to be an articulate and reasonable fellow so it doesn't have the pinnings of a shock tactic.

Here are the five questions:

(1) Why are you so quiet?
(2) Why are none of the Palestinian terrorists Christian?
(3) Why is only one of the 47 Muslim-majority countries a free country?
(4) Why are so many atrocities committed and threatened by Muslims in the name of Islam?
(5) Why do countries governed by religious Muslims persecute other religions?

The elaborations are found in his article here.

I am sure that most Muslims have five questions for Christian countries as well going back to the crusades and similar vile behaviour originating from the vatican but regardless, I would like to hear the opinion of Muslims on the above questions.

I've heard these types of questions asked before and usually the answer is just that Christians/Jews etc did worse things. This tactic really doesn't answer any questions, just deflects the blame for taking questionable actions.
