That is an interesting piece
, but was anyone else jarred by Luttwak's assertion that "Like all monotheistic religions, Islam is an exclusive faith"?
As I understand it, monotheistic religions believe in an exclusive God; most monotheistic religions today do not, however, hold their faith(s) to demand exclusivity: most tolerate other religions (including conversion to other religions) but differ with them about ultimate truth. Only Islam is an exclusive faith. That's why the rest of Luttwak's article is about the wages of Muslim apostasy.
