Quote from article:
Clergyman Majdi A'asor also said that most atheists are a result of the radicalism. "The radicals don't recognize anything other than official interests, which are distancing people from religion. We are as disgusted with radicalism as we are with atheism."
Unquote.

The problem in places like Waziristan, Egypt and the USA appears to be that whether one is religious or not matters. It shouldn't affect anyone's human rights. Politics needs to be secular, there's no 'other way'. People generally need to speak-up for a secular society. Any equitable and inclusive society needs to keep religion out of politics, law, morality, education and science. Religion offers nothing to humanity in any of those areas.
