Salman Rushdie is not the problem. Muslims are.

Salman Rushdie is not the problem. Muslims are. An interesting read from a muslim unwilling to let others steal his religion out from under him.
Above all, I am offended that so many other Muslims are not offended enough to demonstrate widely against God’s self-appointed ambassadors. We complain to the world that Islam is being exploited by fundamentalists, yet when reckoning with the opportunity to resist their clamour en masse, we fall curiously silent. In a battle between flaming fundamentalists and mute moderates, who do you think is going to win?

Of course, you know my take on this: Muslims are not the problem, either. Religion is.
