I enjoyed this article very much. It was great to read the Quietest Salafi perspective. I find the intellectual debate within Islam to be too often absent from the mainstream press. I know it exists, it is just damn hard to find reputable reporting on the subject.

I’m very glad you sought out so many perspectives for this article. Thank you for a great story.

Thanks for your wonderful, mind altering essay. It’s a bit of a long read but very well written & researched, so enlightening!  It is certainly the best magazine article I’ve read in many years. Perhaps ever! I hope you receive a Pulitzer. You certainly deserve it. It is so unusual & refreshing to read an article that seeks & reports the pure truth without first tainting it with the authors own preconceived notions or bias. WELL DONE!

Excellent article. I’d previously read one of your articles [on California prison system] but not remembered your name. With this 2nd article, and two others I’ve now read, I certainly will. Admirable work. Great writing.
