    I respect Dr. Ahmad’s statement, but it’s noteworthy that she lives in Canada, a western country, and so has a western outlook. I suspect if she lived in an actual Muslim country, she wouldn’t be quite so free to express her opinions about the Jews, and indeed, in some countries, she wouldn’t be a professor anyway.

    Taking your point a step further, she’s also an Ahmadi — I always feel a little ambivalent when I see one of the Ahmadiyya doing something positive from a western perspectve, because so many Muslims (Sunni and Shia) don’t recognize them As Muslims — I suspect because they believe the Mahdi has already come. I don’t think many Christians would easily think a Christian group that thought the Second Coming had already occurred, either. So the Ahmadis can never be persuasive examples for more orthodox Muslims, though they are really quite wonderful as far as I can see. I’d like to know more..
