WANTED: a liberty-based interpretation of Islam

We need more people who think like Dr. Mohammad Zuhdi Jassar, founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. He is for individual rights, the US Constitution, separation of mosque and state, and universal liberty.
Speaking at the Oslo Freedom Forum 2010, Dr. Jassar discusses how Islam needs to evolve into modernity, and embrace and integrate the principles of freedom and individual rights.

"[This] is about the liberation of the soul from the shackles of theocracy and fascism."
