    “it is willing to turn a blind eye to butchery and child rape if there is little to be gained from the hypocrisy.”

    What does this even mean? Turn a blind eye to Saudi but not Iran?

    No one should imagine that The Islamic Republic of Iran is “not Islamic”, or “less Islamic”. People vote there, but the place is set up in a way that keeps an elected president from having any real power. In that manner, the secular people do not have any power either.

    However, if Iran has managed to drop apostasy and heresy from its list of crimes, as mentioned here, that would be progress. I wish this piece focused more on exactly what has happened in that regard.
