“This impelled him to learn Arabic, which he studied in Damascus for two years with apolitical Sufi scholars.”

Ah yes Sufi... the mystical wing of Islam. Islamists loathe them with a passion, barbarians that they are.

“Islam, whether Sunni or Shia, has still not learned how to coexist as an equal with other religions when it has the upper hand,” and my Affirmative Action Pakistani Muslim boss, promoted early in order to be made eligible for transfer outa here, was the most erratic, capricious, and petty “leader” I’ve had since I left the Army. Coincidence? I think not.

The author retains his Islamic faith, however; he believes that it is compatible with democracy and that its message is essentially one of peace.

“regarding all people of different opinions as inferior beings, to whom one owes no decency”

Sounds like the way Liberals act when they realize I am a Conservative.

The incident that spurred his break was the murder of one Islamist by another.

This might be the major way that some decent "ismists" are de-programmed.

David Horowitz

Horowitz was a confidant of Black Panthers leader Huey P. Newton, ...He would later cite experiences with his involvement in the Panthers as the primary catalyst for reassessing his views. In December 1974, his close friend Betty Van Patter, a bookkeeper for the Panthers, was murdered.[2] While the case officially went unsolved, Horowitz has maintained that the Panthers were responsible for her murder, committed in order to silence Van Patter from revealing the organization's financial corruption, and thereafter covered up the killing.

After a few years, the author grew disenchanted with Islamism. This, too, is not uncommon among cult adherents as they mature.

A rare occurrence, since the practice of Islamism stunts emotional maturity.

Only a few are repudiating the violent, savage, uncivilized death cult. The rest need to be expelled.

An islamic man that works with one of our members asked him to have our church pray for his son who is very ill. He believes God will answer our prayers. It stunned me because I thought that Christianity was evil in their eyes.

These are 2 internet, grassroot movements of ex-Muslims working to spread the truth about Islam. Faith Freedom is an excellent site.

This guy is clueless.

He must read a different Koran and Hadiths than Zarqawi, bin Laden and Capt. Tom read. - tom

It appears that Ed Husain's father instilled a basic sense of decency in him that proved to be stronger than islamism.

His father was a pious Muslim, of the quietist variety. He did not approve of political Islam, and believed his religion offered both a guide to good conduct and a consolation for the sorrows of human existence.
