All Religious Moslims Advocate Violence Or They Ain't True Believers

Reader comment on item: [Fixing] Islam's Image Problem

That's the bottom line contrary to what Mr. Pipes would have people believe. Those Moslims who follow the strict tenants of the Moslim religion as stated in the Koran, Hadith and other Moslim orthodox religous writings advocate the use of violence against all "infidels"; i.e. non-Muslims, based on the tenants of Orthodox Islam.

Those Moslims who do not advocate the use of violence against "infidels" are not Orthodox Moslims but reformed or moderate and do not adhere strictly to the tenants of Orthodox Islam.

This is in extreme opposition to what Mr. Pipes would have us believe that it is only the Moslim extremists that advocate violence. On the contrary, there is nothing extreme about orthodoxy in any form. Orthodoxy in all religions is the main core of the religious. All reformists from Orthodoxy are the extremists. It is they who move away from the center core to the extreme outer edge of the true form of the religion.
