When Muslims criticize Islamofascists...

...they get expelled from their mosques. Well, at least one of them did: Jamal Miftah of Tulsa. Here's the op-ed in the Tulsa World that got him into deep Shiite:
Because of lack of knowledge of Islam, Muslim youth are misguided into believing by the so-called champions of the cause of Islam that the current spate of killings and barbarism, which has no equal in the recent civilized history, is jihad in the name of Islam. They are incited, in the name of Islam, to commit heinous crimes not pardonable by any religion and strictly forbidden in Islam....

Even mosques and Islamic institutions in the U.S. and around the world have become tools in [Al-Qaeda's] hands and are used for collecting funds for their criminal acts. Half of the funds collected go into the pockets of their local agents and the rest are sent to these thugs.

They are the reason for branding the peaceful religion of Islam as terrorism. The result, therefore, is in the form of Danish cartoons and remarks/reference by the Pope.

I appeal to the Muslim youth in particular and Muslims of the world in general to rise up and start jihad against the killers of humanity and help the civilized world to bring these culprits to justice and prove that Islam is not a religion of hatred and aggression.

I appeal to the Muslim clerics around the world that, rather than issuing empty fatwas condemning suicide bombing, they should issue a fatwa for the death of such scoundrels and barbarians who have taken more than 4,267 lives of innocent people in the name of Islam and have carried out more than 24 terrorist attacks on civilian installations throughout the world. This does not include the chilling number of deaths because of such activities in Iraq and Afghanistan, which is well over 250,000.

I appeal to al-Zawahri and his band of thugs to hand themselves over to justice and stop spreading evil and killing innocent humans around the world in the name of Islam. Their time is limited and Muslims of the world will soon rise against them to apprehend them and bring them to justice.
Finally, a Muslim willing to publicly denounce in unequivocal terms the evil and barbarism of Muslim fanaticism. So naturally, his mosque expelled him. I guess that criticizing certain Muslims is the same as criticizing Islam itself. That's the same idiocy that says criticizing William "Deep Freeze" Jefferson or O.J. "Slasher" Simpson is the same as criticizing black people. Apparently, no black or Muslim can ever do wrong.

Note to Muslims: if you want your image to improve in America, stop punishing your own who rightly identify the enemy within your religion.
