A victory for moderate moslems

As the title suggests, this is a victory for moderate (read: normal) moslems the word over. The more that conservative moslems can see that you can be a happy, functioning individual and still honor the moslem faith, the better their chances of resisting the pull of extremism.

Side notes:

1) I used the word conservative to describe the at-risk muslims because I feel that us Westerners should realize that conservatives are generally more susceptible to religious extremism.

2) The British spelling of the word muslim is just there so that Glenn Beck can't find me on Google. (as if).
