It has nothing to do with Islam

It has nothing to do with Islam
Oh, no, no, no...

Excellent quote from:  "Learning from Islam..." by Henryk M. Broder
via Google translator

"Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Islamic State and the Taliban have nothing to do with Islam. The regime of the ayatollahs has nothing to do with Islam. The bloody battles between Shiites and Sunnis have nothing to do with Islam. If flogged in Saudi Arabia, blasphemers and adulterous women are stoned, that has nothing to do with Islam. The assassins of "9/11" had nothing to do with Islam. Also what happened in London, Madrid, Mumbai, Bali, Boston, Sydney, Brussels and Toulouse, had nothing to do with Islam. Because Islam means "peace" and jihad, we hear it again and again, does not mean "holy war", but "inner struggle" for whatever reason. In every religion there are fanatics, but in no other is so stubbornly insisted that they have nothing to do with the religion to which they refer.

The distinction between the good and the evil Islam-Islamism is considered soberly, as arbitrary as between socialism [theory] and the real existing socialism. It is now even further differentiated. There are also "moderate", "orthodox" and "fanatical" Islamists. But this nuance is that Islamism is not the opposite of Islam, but one of its varieties.  It is strange that no one has come up with the idea to distinguish between capital and capitalism in order to save the honor of the capital, and to push [away the claimed] negative side effects of capitalism...
