Jeeshan:

The "Moderate" Muslim world must stand up and deal with - to use your words - "the few who are fueled with radical nonsense and utilize religion as a tool to gain support".

This has gone on long enough - either their religion has been "hi-jacked" by radicals - or the "Moderates" are part of the problem as well.

They need to step forward in a real measurable meaningful way - and not just offer token "lip service". According to your way of looking at it - a small parasite exists in their ranks. Well this small parasite is causing a global problem - Moderate Muslims need to get on board with the eradication of this problem - or face the judgment of being condemned with Radical Islam. Moderate Muslim silence will not be tolerated for much longer. Actions speak louder than words - and right now Moderate Muslims are standing still in the cone of silence.
