Tell me, what is Nicholas Kristoff really saying?

The Islamic world represses women, spawns terrorism, is prone to war, resists democracy and has contributed remarkably few great scientists or writers to modern civilization. So it's time to defend Islam.

His defense of Islam is simply, "America has faults too." What kind of arguement is that? He missed the middle grounds of moderate Islam and its role in helping us understand how Muslims really do tolerate non-Muslims and can abide by secular government. Where are those Islamic voices of peace? What does peace mean to them? Let's let someone inside Islam explain it.
