Fantasy Islam: A game in which an audience of non-Muslims wish with all their hearts that Islam was a “Religion of Peace,” and a Muslim strives to fulfill that wish by presenting a personal version of Islam that has little foundation in Islamic Doctrine.

The Clarion Project (formerly Clarion Fund Inc) was founded in 2006 and is an independently funded, non-profit organization dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamist extremism while providing a platform for the voices of moderation and promoting grassroots activism.
The Clarion Project has an Advisory Board consisting of three Muslims: Zuhdi Jasser, Raheel Raza, and Elham Manea. The Clarion site explains:
The purpose of The Clarion Project’s Advisory Board is to advise management how to best achieve the organization’s goals of educating the public about Islamic extremism and providing a platform for Muslim human rights activists.
What kind of “education” will the Clarion Project’s management be receiving from these three advisors? Personal versions of Fantasy Islam.
