Droukdel, the emir of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, perhaps surprisingly argues that his fighters moved too fast and too brutally in applying the Islamic law known as Shariah to northern Mali. Comparing the relationship of Al Qaeda to Mali as that of an adult to an infant, he urges them to be more gentle, like a parent:

IOW don't kill the infidels and beat the women right away. That comes later.

Is this the true Islamic pragmatism and gentleness that the Muslims I've known have always tried to convince me is normative in their religion? Forgive me for being underwhelmed... Undecided

Drat. Mali used to be a place where Islam was at its most moderate and tolerant. Embarrassed

So was Somalia, believe it or not. 1960s Mogadishu was actually a very hip, peaceful place to be. Oh well.
