Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Our dear Shahriar and his bogus Arabic

You are right in that I am not an Arab. However, I am not a Pakistani either. Muslims are far more culturally diverse than you may suspect. :) And I hope I do not sound like a proselytizer or Islamic revivalist (tablighee), because that was not my intent at all. You sound like a learned man, and I ain't no scholar, so I won't quibble with you. Anyway, here is a reference for the definition of Muslim that I provided: " Literally, the word means "one who submits to God)" " http://www.answers.com/topic/muslim ie: servants to the will of God.
