I am glad you outed him. The Los Angeles Times, always on the lookout for a moderate Muslim, ran a feature on him a few years ago. He pointed out that his wife does not wear a hijab and that in his company women may conduct prayers. The picture showed him seated, and I think he had his hand out as if petting a dog. There you go - a moderate Muslim practicing moderate Islam. The LAT fell all over him. So glad his star is falling.
