Of course I advocate equal rights for Islamic states. Including the right to call it an Islamic state if that's what the majority of the population (i.e. the people they rule over, including any refugees, and not just people they award citizenship to) wants.
Of course you'd excuse me if I felt your position was insincere if I find you want to start this secular quest with little ole Israel first.
No, I won't excuse you. Can you name an Islamic state which only allows Muslims to immigrate, or which keeps any religious minority section of their population such as Christians and Jews under military occupation, denies them citizenship, sends planes round to bomb Christians' and Jews' houses if they are suspected of having committed a crime, or forces Christians and Jews from their land and homes to make way for Muslim settlers?
Even if it isn't their government's policy?
