You already know what they are "saying" -- it is written

Reader comment on item: CAIR's Inner Workings Exposed
in response to reader comment: We should be infiltrating all mosques in the USA to see what they really are saying!

Ho much would it cost to monitor mosques? And what would you learn that you don't know already? Some are extremists, some are not. Today. The day after some are extremists and some are not, but not exactly the same one. For no-one is extremist or moderate all the time, of course. On the personal plane, it changes all the time and it becomes definitive with action (crime). Thus monitor muslims is a hopeless pursuit, a waste of energy. Look: just do nothing and today's moderate muslims will come to you and tell you who are the bad extremists. Reward the nice moderate for the heads up and they will build the next extremists' mosques behind your confident back...

What counts is the big picture, what muslims are saying/doing as a whole. And there, what counts is in the koran, not in their mouths. And in order to know what counts for them as a whole, that is, what they consistently find in the koran, we just have to look for the consensual elements of all schools of sharia, what always was accepted by all scolars. There you see: they want jihad. They want dhimma. They want hududs. They want slaves. No matter what they say to non muslims: as long as the koran will be believed, muslims will want that as a whole.
