Muslims for Peace

Huff Post: Kelly James Clark.

We can attract more Muslims to the side of justice, peace, and liberty when our majority Christian nation genuinely seeks a world with liberty and justice for all.

Noting the behaviors of some Muslims in Muslim-majority countries might leave the impression that most Muslims and most Muslim leaders endorse intolerance and persecution. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Five Muslim leaders, in my recently published Abraham’s Children: Liberty and Tolerance in an Age of Religious Conflict (Yale University Press), argue that Islam, properly understood, is a religion of peace. I described one of these authors as a “moderate Muslim,” and he objected to this description because of its redundancy — he said that Islam is, by definition, moderate, peaceful, just, and tolerant.
