Where are the Moderate Muslims? A Response to Hussein Aboubakr

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – After every new terrorist attack in the West, falsely committed in the name of Islam by heretics or mercenaries, some politician tries to profit from the tragedy by scapegoating all Muslims and demonizing an entire world religion. Dr. John Andrew Morrow presents the full facts on Islam and Muslims.

According to the Pew Research Center, 93% of the Islamic World is made up of Sunnis, Shiites, and Sufis. They are orthodox Muslims. 7% of the Islamic World is made up of Salafis, Wahhabis, and Takfiris. They are not orthodox Muslims. They are heretics. They are the people referred to in the West as Islamists, Jihadists, and Islamo-Fascists. Statistically speaking, there is absolutely no doubt that the overwhelming majority of Muslims are as law-abiding as the members of any other monotheistic faith. Anyone who argues otherwise is dishonest, duplicitous, and deceptive…

Hussein Aboubakr focuses on the fact that many Muslims from the Middle-East and South Asia support the death penalty for apostasy. However, he conveniently ignores the broader picture. 71% of Tunisian Muslims, 73% of Thai Muslims, 78% Tajik Muslims, 83% of Turkish Muslims, 82% of Indonesian Muslims, 85% of Bosnian and Russian Muslims, 89% of Kosovo Muslims, 92% of Albanian Muslims, and 96% of Kazakh Muslims oppose the death penalty for people who leave Islam…

Over 60% of Muslims support democracy. If this seems low to some, it is because Muslims have been victims of fake democracy since the end of colonial times. If 40% oppose democracy, it is the “democracy” of military dictators and monarchs that they oppose as well as the “democracy” of Western invasion and occupation. When asked about religious freedom, 92.6% of Muslims asserted that it was a good thing. Anyone who claims that “most of the world’s Muslims believe that any acts of violence against Israel, including suicide bombers in buses and restaurants, are justified” is a liar. As the Pew Research Center confirms, the majority of Muslims oppose extremism, terrorism, and suicide bombing…

Calling out Radical Islamists and Jihadists does not make one an Islamophobe. I do it all the time and I am a committed Muslim. Putting all Muslims in the same boat, painting them with the brush, falsifying facts, and trying to convince people that even educated, unveiled, and accent-free Muslim women were extremists is the very epitome of Islamophobia. It is equally Islamophobic to claim that Muslims do not rise up to denounce Islamicist terror because they are secretly in sympathy with the terrorists. Wrong! They denounce it all the time, by the millions. Muslim voices, however, are routinely censored by the mainstream media.

It is critical to distinguish between the masses of Muslim human beings from the tiny minority of sub-human terrorists. The traditional values of Islam are perfectly compatible with the traditional values of the Western world; Judeo-Christian values and Humanitarian values. The Prophet Muhammad produced the first constitution in the political history of humanity. The Covenants of the Prophet were the first to enshrine modern notions of civic and human rights. The principles of the Prophet influenced the European Renaissance, the Napoleonic Code, the American Constitution, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Orthodox, traditional, mainstream, civilizational, and classical Islam does not need to be reformed. It needs to be healed of a disease, a poisonous innovation, called Takfiri Salafism—a cancerous tumor attached to the body of Islam. It does not belong to the body. It will debilitate, destroy, and kill the body. It must be amputated. The sooner that the cancerous tumor is surgically removed, the better it will be for both Muslims and non-Muslims.

I am Dr. John Andrew Morrow, unapologetically Muslim, for the Covenants Initiative.
