There is no such thing as mainstream Muslims

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Kurt Basking (United States), Feb 21, 2010 at 01:44

Dear Dr Pipes: There is no such thing as mainstream Muslims. For all its claim to be a universal religion of peace, Islamists are the biggest isolationists that the world has seen. Not only these guys have political groups like CAIR and ISNA, I recently learnt that now they even have Islamic Games for north America (www.islamic-games.com). Most religious groups in the US do not feel the need of creating their separate games from everyone else but Islamists do.
