yes, Moderate Muslims are the light unto the nation

in response to reader comment: confusion

I have had the honour to be in conversation with Salim Mansur. I have not known him to spend time highlighting the beauty of Islam. He is respected as a devout Muslim who speaks out against the crimes committed by Radical Muslims.

You do not need to tell me about how good you are ...or how good other Muslims are. You do not need to defend Obama when he lied about never being a Muslim. I listen to Muslims in North America talk at great length about how the "non-believer" does not understand them...but only a very small number will ever say anything against the heinous crimes committed in the name of Allah.

I sent the article that was written by a devout Palestinian Muslim living in Israel. He is a light unto the nations.

K.Ahmed there is much you can do to improve dialogue within your community. If religion & history are taken out of the equation... and in areas of terrorist conflict, Muslims learn to love their children more than they hate their enemies...then there will be hope for more promising tomorrows.
