We shall see.

All of you who say “Muslims should stand up and be against their religion being used as justification of terrorism.” have never spent a year in the shoes of an Iranian or Syrian or Iraqi who knows that if they speak up their very life and their family are in danger. It is why outside forces such and USA need to fight.

He makes no mention of the slaughter of Shiites, Christians, Yazidis, and so many other minorities.

The problem lies within the Sunni world. They need to get there religions house in order and get rid of all of the terrorists among them…….

If this example is accepted and followed by muslims the world over they may eventually take back regain control of the public relations of Islam.

Only in this manner can they once again live in peace with the rest of the world.

Muslims are in mostly hot areas of the world. Therefore, they are mostly crazy. The Muslims who leave, are no longer crazy. Alabama and Texas… crazy Christians. Cambodia and Thailand…. crazy Buddhists. Rwanda…. crazy tribes. Global warming will only amplify this problem. People need to chill funk out, and quit chopping arms off.

Is the author, being a Muslim, asserting that there exists ANY other true religion besides Islam? Notwithstanding word games whereby Jesus, Abraham, etc.. are classified as ‘Muslims’.

Therein lies the real issue. Islam clearly treats most other religions as idolatrous, to be eliminated or at best 2nd class as in the case of Christianity and Judaism, to be openly subjugated and humiliated and taxed.

If deceiving ‘infidels’ is a commonly accepted Muslim stratagem of ‘war’ and especially Holy War, how can one even accept the words of the author at face value.

Non-Muslims will no longer be assuaged with mere subjective, candy-coated, handwaving but require real answers to real questions arising from the very Quran and Sunnah themselves. Author neither deals with the contradictions in the Quran and the abrogation of the ‘peaceful’ verses.

The author also seems to not have an objective view of Islam’s violent heritage and history (and present and hopefully not future) which discredits the article completely. Even several of the early caliphs were murdered/assassinated. The country of India is another example of brutal Islamic history.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Mufti

Therefore, the comments in this piece are more than philosophizing by an individual Islamic scholar.

The world needs respected Muslim authorities to take strong positions against radical jihadism. Invoking the religion of Islam in order to justify heinous acts of violence is the main tool of radical jihadists. That tool can be taken away only by those who can teach Muslims that the way of radical jihadists is not the way of Islam, and that can be done only by defining what is and what is not Islam. Non-Muslims certainly cannot define Islam in any meaningful way. Only respected religious authorities like the Grand Mufti of Egypt can do so. Therefore, respected authorities of Islam can take away the principal tool of radical jihadists – their ideology.

God bless him.

There is no innovation or progress coming from Islamic nations. When is the last time you heard of a medical breakthrough coming from a university in an Islamic country? What are their innovations in alternative energy? Civil engineering? Anything?
