Assalamu 'alaykum,

I think it is precisely the hypocrisy that is key here. I had to smile when you pointed out about the photos and celebrating other days. That basically sums up the problem - of course the more serious and tragic indicator is the silence in the face of murder of innocents - when your core values are subservient to political ends then it certainly isn't Islam anymore (and these groups make the facile their core!)

BTW I love your site, I followed through a post you left on mine. Masha'Allah I am going to have fun going through your archives. Chittick and Murata are two of my favourite writers, their "The Vision of Islam" is the one book I would give to everyone if I could.

Salaam

Thank you for your kind words, Maryam. I found your site via Al-Muhajabah's blog, and can only return your compliments. Your weblog is as good a read, as it looks (and it looks great).

"[W]hen your core values are subservient to political ends then it certainly isn't Islam anymore"

I couldn't have put it better myself.

Salaam `alaykum
