Kamran Pasha on The Pope—and the Islamic System, so to speak

As I have mentioned elsewhere, over the last few years, I have come to greatly respect Kamran Pasha who, if you haven't heard of him yet, is a successful Hollywood writer with a South Asian background. He's written for The Twilight Zone, Kings, Tron: Uprising, and even Nikita. But where I discovered him and found most compelling was Sleeper Cell, a series he was writer and co-producer for over 2 years. If you haven't seen it, do; especially if 24 left you feeling so much more could be done with that genre in terms of educating the public. (Not that I am not a fan of 24, but I digress.) I mention Kamran Pasha because today, he posted something on Facebook that you really should read—it's a great description of the social and economic system of Islam. No, not the "Islam is the solution" of the Islamists, but what mainstream, moderate Muslims have believed for centuries, if not a millenium and a half. Required reading for all; Muslims, non-Muslims, curious folk, or even if you think you kinda know Islam and Muslims and don't like what you know:
