Here is an excerpt:
Whether right or wrong, many persons in this group feel certainthat the only thing holding hundreds of thousands of people— maybe millions—from leaving the ‘slavery of Islam’ for ‘the love of God in Christ’ is fear of punishment and persecution. Some have crossed that threshold. Their message is, “Now is the time for evangelism,” and “Love alone can remove grudges, and forgivenessalone can blot out transgression. To die for the killer is the only way to annul killing” (Rishawi 175), and “A man who can disagree and yet remain gracious with you is a hundred times greater than agod who cannot bear divergence of opinion or criticism—the dictator’s fragile throne” (qtd in Andrew and Janssen 15). The dictator’s fragile throne is the entire oppressive system of the Islamic shari’a,and in the words of Fatima al-Mutayri, the goal is “civility that is transparent in appearance // and a new civilization in all measures and laws.” It is this new civilization that is the Promised Land to which these exiles are travelling. Whether or not they will ever arrive, only time will tell.
