Other readings may possibly be more in the mainstream of Islamic thought, explaining why it isn't big news. Note that the comments at that link are more heated than ours usually get.

It goes on to detail the reasoning.
I found something similar to what you did, but the website of the link below have stated goals that make the source of info questionable at best.
The problem is that the Middle East Forum is biased to promote American interests in the middle east. Below is what I clipped from the website:
The Middle East Forum promotes American interests in the Middle East and protects the Constitutional order from Middle Eastern threats.
The Forum sees the region — with its profusion of dictatorships, radical ideologies, existential conflicts, border disagreements, corruption, political violence, and weapons of mass destruction — as a major source of problems for the United States. Accordingly, it urges active measures to protect Americans and their allies.
U.S. interests in the Middle East include fighting radical Islam; working for Palestinian acceptance of Israel; robustly asserting U.S. interests vis-à-vis Saudi Arabia; developing strategies to deal with Iraq and contain Iran; and monitoring the advance of Islamism in Turkey.
Domestically, the Forum combats lawful Islamism; protects the freedom of public speech of anti-Islamist authors, activists, and publishers; and works to improve Middle East studies in North America.
