Taking Offence

A snippet from something I posted on a list a while back:

"If I am going to to be offended as a Muslim, I am offended by both people who equate the word "Shariah" (or Islam, or Fiqh, or Hadith, or ... or "socialism", or "Hindu", or...) with the worst
mis-use and abuse of the concept as I am by people who equate their own particular interpretation of such a concept with the wider concept (like W's use of the words "Liberty", and "Freedom" and ...and that's being charitable to him).
