In a damning criticism of moderate Muslims, Egyptian atheist Sherif Gaber says that anyone who condemns ISIS for their cruelty — saying they don’t represent “true” Islam — must not be aware of their faith’s own history. Because the Islam of the past is also full of slaughter, beheadings, slavery, underage brides, and more.
Destroying ISIS won’t solve the problems of Islamic radicalism, Gaber says, because “the problem lies in the ideology itself.”
Turn on the subtitles and watch.
Gaber, for those who don’t know, is the young Egyptian who was arrested in 2013 for starting a Facebook group that included posts about his own deconversion out of Islam. (The police “investigation,” if you want to call it that, was a complete joke.)
