Decent Muslims are only just waking up to the unpleasantness of their religion, so they think it has been hijacked.
Muslim is associated with the actions of its extremists, first of all
because the mud sticks, but secondly, those extremists are modelling
themselves on the words of the Koran and the actions of Mohammed, which
all Muslims venerate. They are not getting their ideas from anywhere
other than those sources. We do not get Zoroastrian terrorists
or Methodist terrorists.
If good Muslims do
not distance themselves from the Koran and Mohammed, then they are in a
position of moral ambiguity. The only honest
thing to do is to cut themselves loose from it. That is obviously not
going to be an easy thing for them to do as it will also involve cutting themselves away from family and community ties. One might hope that others in the family and community will follow the trailblazers.
