I would love to see a movement in Islam that rejects shariah outright. I’m not sure if a change of terms would help (i.e., Shariah Terrorists, or Shariaists), but this is the critical disconnect — when conservatives say “islamic” they mean “shariah supporting”, and when progressives say “islamic” they mean “cultural muslims”. How shariah is extracted from Islam is a wicked problem, but your insightful words are certainly a good start.

Thank you for sharing your direct perspective on the problem!
