THERE ARE MODERATE MUSLIM LEADERS OUT THERE, as discussed in this story, and also here. When they step up like this, they deserve our full support. And you will note that I use the word "leaders" in the caption. I have known and been friends with far too many muslims, both shia and sunni, to believe for a second that the problem rests with the "ummah." The problem at its root is the clerical establishment who, to borrow the words from Amir Taheri, want to use their religion as "a political ideology and an instrument of power" over all others.
