Freedom In Islam To Discuss Truth?

Baptist Press has reported:
During his sermon, Abdul Malik encouraged Muslims while trying to reassure Americans of their support for this country. "I want the American people to know: We love you.... America, this is our country. We are with you," said Malik, a New York imam who plans to move soon to Washington to serve as chief executive officer of Islam on Capitol Hill.

America "is one of the best places in the world to live," Malik said. "What we have done here today we couldn't do in any Muslim country."

Malik made it clear Islam would seek to make converts.

"America, I announce to you, it is my intention to invite your children to the worship of one God," he said. "It is my intention to remove every idol from every place -- nothing physical. It is a confrontation of ideas, because, brothers and sisters, the most powerful weapon you have in your hand ... is truth."
I am curious. If he is so confident in truth, why doesn't he go back to Saudi Arabia and call for a separation of Church and State? Why do the Saudis or any Islamic country not allow freedom of religion?

The answer is simple. Free and open discourse is not possible in Islam. I dare any Muslim or atheist or anyone else to go to a Muslim country and attempt to do what is often done in the West against Christianity. You might last 2 minutes?
