"To be a Moderate Muslim is the most comfortable and safe position a Muslim can assume. It will never be bothered from the right, the left, Islamists, Government, the American people.......NOBODY can prove he/she is the enemy" - quoting you.

Yes, these "moderate Muslims" benefit from our Freedom, Security & Peace; while our President and our soldiers fight what should be, should have been the Muslim's fight.

It's funny, but when you look at it, it should be that we, moderate Muslims & U.S., have a common enemy - Islamism. Unless, of course, the "moderates" don't consider Islamism an enemy. Very possible most of them don't. If Shari'a law took over, they'd say "it's the will of Allah".

But where are the voices? Here on this website, for example? I spend hours reading posts here and have NEVER read a single "moderate" Muslim identify himself as such and then say Islamism is the enemy.

I HAVE read MANY posts by Muslims "pointing the finger"; Islamism exists because it's the U.S.'s fault, it's because of the Crusades, it's because Israel belongs to the Palestinians, it's because the British divided up the Middle East, it's America that's a war-monger.

I HAVE read posts from former "moderate" Muslims who no longer are Muslim. And they all say the Muslim religion is impossible to "re-habilitate".

Daniel Pipes has said it's up to the Iraqis to determine their future. Very true.

Muslims have been determining their future for over millenia. Now, with the U.S. at war with Islamists, they have no excuse, because they have a perfect opportunity at last to fight the dictatorial side of their religion, and what do they do? In this country, the vast majority sit sit silent. In Iraq, hundreds of thousands have simply left.

I'm curious, Ynnatchka, abou your comment, "Ann Coulter's ( I mostly agree with her) and Savage's (who's that?) Ideas are unattainable", but are working at the U.S. - Mexican border? Explain? -Jennifer
