If only he would refrain from claiming that the extremists are “like a cancer inside the wonderful, beautiful (Muslim) faith” that he practices, he would be a lot more credible. But he does get props for being the target of hate and derision by virtually all other Muslim groups.
The extremists ARE the Islamic faith. People like Jasser, who reject the hatred and violence against non-believers which dominate the Quran and hadiths, are shunned by most Muslims. In the eyes of Islam, Jasser is considered an apostate, eligble for the death penalty.
