What is a "moderate" Muslim???

Ann Farmer, you wrote: "What we need to do is to support moderate Muslims who are under pressure from extremists to take over their mosques. The extremists would certainly not care if mosques were closed and imams expelled; this is exactly the sort of discord they seek - between Muslim and Muslim, between Muslim and Jew, and between Muslim and Christian."

My question to you is where are those "mythical moderate" Muslims??? You want to depend on them to fight the "extremists" among them. But the fact is that moderates are nowhere around to join us to fight the extremists/Islamists.

Worldwide, the imamullahs in the mosques tell Muslims what to do and they just do it like lemmings without questioning as if they have been forbidden to think for themselves. These imams are solely responsible to incite Muslims against all non.Muslims following allah's commands from Quran. If these imams were to be expelled from UK and some mosques closed down, perhaps the mythical moderate Muslims might emerge from their hideouts(only if they really exist). By the way how does one define a "modertae" Muslim???

The present band of British leaders and the BBC are the appeasers without any back bone. We in USA also have similar spineless appeasers. These guys might do well by going back and reading the writings of Churchill who described Muslims very well almost a century back. That might help them grow some backbone to fight the Islamic terrorism.
