Correcting Religious Bigotry

For anyone who has never read Al Quaeda taken down from a Muslim perspective- and there are many in the West who say they haven't and argue that Muslims never criticise terrorists- then let me reccomend this brilliant fisking of Al Zawahiri's Eid address by Ali Eteraz. He destroys it and tears Zawahiri intellectually limb from limb- its a really great piece of destructive criticism. It exposes Al Zawahiri not merely for the violent extremist he is but also as a defiler of Muslim texts, someone who is propagandistically unconcerned with truth and someone who can convert even a Eid blessing into a call for destruction of all Muslims and non-Muslims who don't share his doctrine.

If more people in the world knew that not all muslims blindly support violence and terrorism, we may have approached this supposed "war on terror" very differently.

Yes I wish people realised that Muslims were just people not part of a hostile group of aliens but just people and some of them are extreme some of them aren't. Most of them want to do the things we all do- make money, live securely and grow old seeing their kids do well.
