I do not believe in islam-free muslims

Reader comment on item: Smoking Out Islamists via Extreme Vetting
in response to reader comment: we need muslims in the West to defeat islamism

It's not for me - and nor for you, nor any Westerner - to decide who is "muslim" and who is "islamist", a non-islamic term artificially forged by some intellectual circles in order to muddy the waters. I do not know at what level and by what standard one can recognize, without failing into a woolly-eyed ethnocentrism ("good" or "bad" in our view), where the "muslim" ends and the "islamist" begins. But I know what is written in their "noble" Quran, in the Sira of their Big Model Muhamad and in the hadiths. In other words what the islam really is. And there is no place for this totalitarian and freedom-destroying ideology in the West. And I do not believe in islam-free muslims...
