Description

The desire for freedom and self-government is written in human hearts everywhere; in this there can be no "clash of civilizations." The quest for democracy among Muslims today is one of the most prominent and transformative features of our time. Claims that Islam is inherently hostile to democracy represent an unwarranted surrender to fundamentalist arguments. We should engage with a broad spectrum of Muslim groups, but without compromising our commitment to freedom and democracy.
