DANIEL PIPES: Militant Islam is of modern phenomenon a twentieth century phenomenon that basically originates in the 1920s, the era of totalitarian enthusiasm, the era when fascism got going, Leninism got going, so did militant Islam.

Response: The moment Islam originated, the militant islam also originated. With terrorism as a weapon, the islam was spread. Only, during that time nobody coined this new word "militant islam". It doesnt have new dates like 1920s.

I agree there are moderate muslims. They are moderate because they know the value of their lives. They are keeping quite because they are afraid "right now". But give them a chance to be powerful...
Best Wishes
