He's arguing that communities have the right to do such a thing because Islam is apparently radically different from Judaism and Christianity because it's "both a religion and a set of laws". What I'm getting out of this quote is an obfuscated appeal to our old friend, "creeping Sharia"
That is a pretty solid point though. I can't think of a set of laws laid out in, say, Christianity. Not one, let alone ten of them.
