Nozzi, you wrote:

>>We, moderate Muslims, stand firm that our ways of behaviours do not contradict the teaching of the Holy Quran.<<

Does your 'ways of behaviours' extend to fighting the people of the book as the Koran orders you to:

009.029 YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

>>To you, you criticize moderate Muslims since you insist your interpretation of the Holy Quran.<<

That is because moderate Muslims turn a blind eye to what the Koran really teaches. Moderate Muslims are unwilling to reject verses like 9:111, 9:28, 9:29 or 8:67. What is your interpretation of these verses?

>>Bear in mind that we have right conscience before Allah about our behaviour since Allah is the Most Merciful.<<

You have the right of conscious before Allah about your behaviour. Meaning what? You can interpret the Koran the way you want?

And what about unbelievers who interpret the Koran's violent and intolerant verses at face value?

>>We do not believe our interpretation is wrong especially it is mentioned clearly that Allah is the Most Merciful.<<

How does your interpretation stand up against Allah telling the Prophet that he should have slaughtered his prisoners of war (8:67)?

>>We, moderate Muslims, will insist to convince more and more non-Muslims to repent to become Muslims.<<

Your insisting that non-Muslims must repent is sheer unadulterated ARROGANCE. Why should we repent????

Regards

Plato
