in response to reader comment: "Muslim Weekly" Apologizes to Daniel Pipes -- sweeeeeet

Just because he was born Muslim doesn't make him a muslim throughout. Allam never practiced Islam, and in Islam a situation where you miss three straight friday prayers forces you then to take the oath once again that you are Muslim, because he is born Muslim doesn't just ensure he will be a Muslim his whole life. The man has always considered himself non-Muslim, and today he converted to Christianity. Plenty of "Muslims" here in America have tried milking being born Muslim as a way to write anti-Islam books. There has been numerous case with non-practicing Muslims who were atheist pretending they were Muslims again to be able to have credibility in writing anti-Islamic books which have been cheered by the masses who don't take time to learn but embrace the ignorance.
