'Innocent religion is now a message of hate'

WOW, on the heals of that powerful OpEd in the New York Post, I found this piece by Abdel Rahman al-Rashed. He is general manager of the Al-Arabiya News Channel. Go read it!
"It is a certain fact that not all Muslims are terrorists, but it is equally certain, and exceptionally painful, that almost all terrorists are Muslims... We cannot tolerate in our midst those who abduct journalists, murder civilians, explode buses; we cannot accept them as related to us, whatever the sufferings they claim to justify their criminal deeds. These are the people who have smeared Islam and stained its image. We cannot clear our names unless we own up to the shameful fact that terrorism has become an Islamic enterprise; an almost exclusive monopoly, implemented by Muslim men and women."
Powerful stuff. I fear for his life, for having published it. Go read the rest! Hat tip: Andrew Sullivan. I am hust hoping this is the start of something big. Muslims owe it to themselves and the future of the world to TAKE BACK their religion.
