Grief for humanity


Originally published in The San Antonio Express

As a moderate American Muslim, it is painful to watch my faith be hijacked on a daily basis and see the damage that groups like ISIS are doing. As Japan weeps for Haruna Yukawaand Kenji Goto, and Jordan grieves for Muath al-Kaseasbeh, so do I.

I condemn any and every action of ISIS in the strongest possible words. ISIS is an enemy of humanity. Religious or not, man or woman, Muslim or Christian, ISIS has no place among reasonable human beings. Every day, I hope and pray that the ugly, twisted and incorrect contortion of Islam that is ISIS is eradicated entirely.
