The Problem is not Fanaticism

(From an online debate of mine …)

But even Muslim Brotherhood is not the problem, because what is wrong with wanting to implement the precepts of your religion? For this reason, even the Egyptian FM is being stupid, because, had he been a good man (that is, a good follower of his religion), he would support the MB and all its equivalents.

The problem is Islam—and the Egpytian FM will, of course, fail to see this, since he is a Muslim. There is nothing wrong with the piousness that is expressed as Islamic fanaticism. The problem is not the fanaticism; the problem is that the fanaticism is for Islam.
