You're not Muslim. For them, that's reason enough

"The ritualistic 'Why do they hate us' browbeating favored by the chattering classes is nonsense. Al Qaeda hated us because we were not Muslims. But it was only using us as the hated 'other' to consolidate a collective Muslim identity. We are to Islamists what the Jews were to Hitler; a useful scapegoat whose otherness can be used to manufacture a contrasting pure Aryan or Islamic identity." - Daniel Greenfield, writing at Sultan Knish
