This morning On the Square Russ Saltzman reads his favorite Islamic magazine, Al-Jumuah and considers what the magazine reveals about its readership:

Al-Jumuah is written for Muslims trying their best to live in America and not become whatever equivalent of mainline Protestantism exists for Islam. It is not easy and sometimes the cultural ties to the old country seem to trump everything . . . . There is nothing at all in my reading suggestive of any appeal to radicalization, but the perspective clearly is live in the West, but do not be conformed to it.
