What Muslims can learn from Israel?

Do you know why the Jewish nation is “yak khaneh abat” (a well built house)? Their leaders are intelligent, rational and wise; they possess the foresight and mental agility to embrace modernity.

Wherever Jews reside they continuously adapt Judaism in a rapidly changing world. Unfortunatley, Most Muslim majority countries employ an austere form of Islam as a form of social control over the masses. We see this scenario play out in 55+ Muslim states including the one I am originally from.

The Afghan nation lacks leaders who can reconcile Islamic identity with modernity because they are too preoccupied benefiting monetarily from corruption and terrorism that punishes Afghans everyday and anyone who questions those in power is either ignored (if they are perceived weak) or labeled godless (if they are powerful like me).
