Dr. Zuhdi Jasser is one of the men I admire most. When he recently appeared on Glenn Beck’s show he showed, once again, why that’s so:
Courageous Islamic reformers like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser are the reason why I’m convinced that the war on Radical Islam will be won… eventually. Yes, we can bomb ISIS and similar radical organizations back to the Stone Age, but that won’t actually make the problem go away permanently because Islamism has become part of Islamic cultures. It’s an ideological and cultural battle; you can only win such a war with opposing ideas, not just with bombs.
Jasser has an alternative vision for what Islam can and should be, and understands how to sell his ideas to fellow Muslims. The best part? His interpretation of Islam is loving, caring, compassionate, thoroughly modern and inspiring. His enemies only have hate and death to work with. As history has shown, in the end, liberty, freedom and love always win, especially when the forces for good use media and education to reach as many people as possible. The only bad news is that it may take several decades before Radical Islam is finally destroyed.
Do you agree that Islam can be reformed or have you given up hope for the world’s second largest religion?
