“The great Islamic scholar of the 19th century, Muhammad Abdo wrote that when he visited the West he found Islam but no Muslims and upon his return to the Arab world he countenanced many Muslims but no Islam.”

    Must be an “in” joke. He should have tried Pakistan. He’d have found Islam, Muslims AND suicide bombers.

    Not a fan of Fox news but this little gem from that source really should have caught on – Homicide Bomber.

    I suspect the speaker of that quote was refering to some idealized “Islam” when he found “Islam” in the west but not in the Arab world. People say the same about Christianity all the time–like Ghandi who said something like “I like your Christ but not your Christians.”

    What enlightened religious folk see as their religion is really not much more than good ‘ol univeral humanist values.
