Ammar — what a wonderful article, distinguishing between Islam & Sharia Law, between the progressive ideas put forward by the Prophet, and the repressive measures adopted by his successors. Is there a difference between Sunni and Shia Muslims when it comes to Sharia Law, or are both branches the same when it comes to enforcing medieval punishments and oppressions?

I love the photos at the end of the True Faces of Islam. Your call for Democrats and Republicans to start “Exploring unity, not exploiting division” made me recall a line from the Sermon on the Mount “Blessed are the Peacemakers!”

America doesn’t need less Muslims, it just needs more like you.
