Well, it's always good to read primary sources, so here's what some Muslims think:
So what do you think? Does Islam have a solid foundation to build on, particularly given the different life examples of Jesus and Mohammed? Should we encourage Muslim advocates of nonviolent resistance, or dismiss them as misguided?
And that last question brings me to another question: if you live by a just war theology as a Christian, would you reciprocally defend Muslim use of "justified" violence?
