An Arabic op-ed, written by an Egyptian Muslim, recently appeared arguing that, it is not  cartoons that defame Islam and its prophet, but rather ”we Muslims, for imposing a terroristic, hypocritical, and life-hating model of Islam that feeds on killing others in the name of jihad and fighting freedom of expression.”

Very hard-hitting and honest, I translated the op-ed here.

As the author argues, which is more damaging to the reputation of Islam: the above illustration -- or terrorism, murder, hate, misogyny, and intolerance in its name?
