Sabri Husibi, a former Muslim who is now an atheist, says he has been ostracized and threatened with death since publication of a Tulsa World article Saturday in which he was critical of Islam and all other religions.
Former Muslim? Atheist? Living in Oklahoma? That has to be a difficult life, but it hasn't stopped Mr. Husibi from stating his beliefs.
On Tuesday, a clearly shaken Husibi asked that any future articles emphasize that he is not attacking Islam alone but all religions, including "fundamentalist Christians like Timothy McVeigh and fundamentalist Jews who kill Muslim children in the Gaza Strip."
He said Tulsa Muslims are awaiting an apology from him.
"I won't apologize," he said. "I'm not going to be a chicken. This is my right, to give my point of view."
One of the things that are upsetting people is Mr. Husibi claiming that the Quran is not the word of god and it has been changed many times by the hand of man.
