Imam Straw? Get Real

Reader comment on item: What's True Islam? Not for U.S. [Government] to Say

Jack Straw's vaunted knowledge of Islam is so good that he can correctly identify apostasy? There are a lot of other Western leaders who claim similar expertise, like Obama and Cameron. Some chutzpah.

Despite their authoritative and confident posture, I'll stick with the Muslims of ISIS and related groups when it comes to Islam.

I have much more confidence in them than the Western leaders who are trying to discredit them for obvious reasons of convenience.
