“The Trouble with Islam Today” – read it before judging it

On mepeace.org, there are some great recommendations.  Here’s another. I recommend Irshad Manji’s book, The Trouble with Islam Today. She writes the book as an open letter to her fellow Muslims,  challenging them to join her in Operation Ijtihad (read the book to find out what this is).  She throws in a call to non-Muslims as well, urging us to be careful of the racism that comes from over-compensating.  This book is an inspiration to reaffirm our commitment to freedom of expression, individuality, and human rights for all.
