John Ellis lays out the dilemma Is Islam a Religion of Peace? Let’s ask the OIC.
There are seemingly two distinct wings of modern Islam. One wants to exist peacefully with non-Muslims while the other wants to annihilate or subjugate non-believers. The two seem to co-exist, but there's the sneaking suspicion among many that if the peaceful Muslims had to choose, they would side with the radicals.
Mr. Ellis suggests that the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, which holds itself out as "the collective voice of the Muslim world," should be called on to tell us whether the radical wing with its emphasis on the early Islamic teachings is doing it right or whether the peaceful wing is the present day embodiment of the Muslim religion. If they can't answer, then that may as well be interpreted as a vote for the radical wing.
(I would have included some excerpts from Mr. Ellis' enlightening article, but Americanthinker.com is down for some reason. Hopefully, it will be back up by the time this post goes online.)
