Al-Qaeda

“[W]hoever claims to be a ‘democratic-Muslim’ or a Muslim who calls for democracy, is like one who says about himself ‘I am a Jewish Muslim’ or ‘I am a Christian Muslim’—the one worse than the other. He is an apostate infidel.” Raymond Ibrahim, trans., The Al-Qaeda Reader (New York: Doubleday, 2007), 136.
