False Assertion

Reader comment on item: The U.S. Institute of Peace Stumbles

Submitted by Alex Murad (Canada), Mar 23, 2004 at 12:27

It's absolutely absurd and ridiculous to suggest that the CSID is representative of "radical Islam". Far from it.
CSID promotes democratic change in the Muslim world, much like what the U.S. is doing by force in Iraq.

The CSID has amongst its cadre notable progressive and moderate Muslim scholars like Ahmed Akbar, Muqtedar Khan, and Abdulaziz Sachedina, who wrote the book "Islamic roots of Democratic Pluralism".

The CSID is the one of the few Muslim institutions that stands up to extremist Muslims and their "war everyday" mentality.
