Shorter response

Reader comment on item: Hamza Yusuf Fails My "Test"
in response to reader comment: Interesting.

This morning I saw something that greatly condensed my thoughts Subriah. I've noticed the tendency of Muslims not to listen to kuffar like me on such issues. So instead of my ramblings, read this piece by a British muslim who previously was radical but had his eyes opened after experiencing the logical end of radical Islam firsthand.

Quite likely, like you, he does not call himself a "moderate muslim" today; he would just say he is "muslim". He might even fail Pipe's imperfect test. But I'll lay dollars to dimes that he now makes a clear and unmistakable distinction between himself and extremist muslims, and which side of this war he's on. Whatever you call yourself, I hope (and even believe) you count yourself an ally of folks like this. The key, Subriah, is to publicly make these distinctions.
