I know what you are thinking.
Isn’t that an oxymoron?
When I say normal Muslim I am referring to a Muslim who displays normative behavior with respect to American ideals and thought processes inside the realm of sanity.
A Persian Shiite friend of mine (a refugee of the tyrannical theocracy in Iran) is absolutely befuddled to learn that The Death of Klinghoffer was written by a Jew.
I explained to him that Alice Goodman, the author, was born a nominal Jew and converted to Christianity.
He was still enraged that anyone would write a play depicting murdering terrorists in a humane light on an equivalent plane as the victim.
To him, it was no different from rationalizing the motives and equating the grievances of the 9/11 hijackers with their victims.
Why can’t more Muslims be normal?
