no moderate muslims

a classic short story by Ali Eteraz. It begins,

The Great J.A.F.I (Just another Frothing Islamophobe) stepped through
the door and said he was looking for Ali Eteraz. Somewhere in the world
some murderers who called themselves Muslims had done some murdering
and it was necessary to find Ali Eteraz to have him comment on the
matter, since being a law abiding Muslim he knew everything about law
breaking Muslims.

what transpires next, you will simply have to read the whole thing to determine for yourself. My favorite sentence, though, is “Ali Eteraz smiled the great smile of those who know they are loved by the right people.” Indeed.
