Can People of Muslim Heritage defeat the Radical Fundamentalists?

“Karima Bennoune shares four powerful stories of real people fighting against fundamentalism in their own communities — refusing to allow the faith they love to become a tool for crime, attacks and murder. These personal stories humanize one of the most overlooked human-rights struggles in the world.”

  1. Can people of Jewish or Christian or Hindu or Sikh or Zoroastrian heritage defeat ( or sften into insignificance) THEIR radical fundamentalists?

    Seems to me the crudescence is sort of universal. As might be any remedies…

  2. Bennoune has written a book on this subject, Your Fatwa Does Not Apply Here. It is full of stories of Muslims around the world fighting against fundamentalism. She also goes into more detail about her theoretical assumptions. She finds fundamentalism in all of its guises to be a problem and in opposition to truly human development.

  3. The root of this is the Saudi and their fellow Wahhabis. The West by coddling them is ennabling the fundamentalists-plain and simple.

  4. Can decent people in America defeat the neocon warmongers, the military-industrial-congressional complex, the bankers and corporations that rule them?

  5. Are we expected to do so and why? Is it expected of any other group to explain or apologize for who they are in such a way?
