we have to differentiate between two kinds of Islam.
The first one is the institution of Islam...
second, the culture of Islam.

which teaches one to be lenient towards others and
to understand their value systems,
knowing that these are tolerated by Islam as a religion.

then we tend to defend it against whatever we see as a danger to it,
so because of this we see now that many people are defending states,
defending territories, defending everything institutional
in the belief that they defend Islam.
- Abdurrahman Wahid
