Maajid Nawaz om islamsk kolonialism

Maajid Nawaz, som bl.a. skrev Islam och toleransens framtid tillsammans med Sam Harris, publicerade häromdagen ett kort men slagkraftigt inlägg om islamsk kolonialism, där han berättar Pakistans historia.
Again, in all these cases, there has been at times a disproportionate, state-heavy response to often beleaguered but militant separatists, although you’d be forgiven for only having heard about Israel’s actions in Gaza.
Nawaz, som själv är muslim, avslutar med följande konstaterande:
It is precisely this lack of internal criticism that is allowing Muslim-majority societies to fall apart at the seams while we insist that everyone else is worse than us. 
We Muslims have become the totally self-unaware cry-bully in the school playground. 
That child who everyone is scared of upsetting, but no-one really likes.
Alla kan tycka saker, men om något verkligen ska bli bättre, måste kritiken komma inifrån.
