The Price Of Compromise, The Wages Of Influence

The Price of Compromise"Some cultures do not compromise. Take the example of Islam. Islam is now culture, now religion, now political system and now race. It can be anything, depending on the situation. However, Islam cannot change. You cannot water it down, reform it or modernize it. The Qu'ran is emphatic that Islam is perfect (Q: 5:3).
