in response to reader comment: Who are we to judge?

No one can possibly judge what a "Good" Muslam is, because no one knows. From my perspective a good Muslam is a person who has rejected all violence in the name of religion, rejects the Koranic verses regarding killing, non-Muslams, women, Islamic Law, and all coersive acts toward all persons. Then that person would not be a Muslam .

The Irony is that the individual Muslam must reject Islam to be a 'good' Muslam. The evidence is that the mythology and dogma which comprise the concept collectively called "Islam" is a narrative of violence and inhumanity. Those who act out the narrative, the Muslams, are compelled to resort to violence simply by acting out the narrative and emulation of the founder of the mythology, Mr Muhammed himself. Only individual aggressiveness and personality limit the violence encouraged by the Muhammedic message. It is fortunate that the majority of human beings shun violence, but for those individuals who have decended to the baser nature of human beings, Islam knowns no bounds when the aggressive personality internalizes the mythology of Islam.
