The Freedom to Proselytize

Religious freedom means the freedom to proselytize. Everyone has a right to try to propagate their faith to others, so long as this is not done in such a way (e.g. using force or threats) that infringes on their basic rights to choose for themselves. Judaism is the majority religion in Israel, but missionising by other faiths amongst Jews is completely legal, nor are Jews who convert to other religions penalised. Elsewhere in the Middle East, promoting religions other than Islam is illegal and sometimes even punishable by death.
