Moderate Islam

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by gibor (United States), Sep 7, 2010 at 11:57

I can understand Mr Pipes opinion since he is a very distinguished scholar of Islam. I respectfully, disagree on the situation of moderate Islam. I really do not think that it is existing in substantial measure, or if does it will not able to exist under the overwhelming weight and pressure from the rest of Islam that is far from moderate. Anyway what is moderate Islam? Moslems who will not appreciate or believe in the Qu'ran? Maybe those Moslems will be accepted by the people who are able to distinguish between the "moderates" and the "Islamists", how about the overwhelming majority, the deciding majority of Moslems?

As Mr Pipes would acknowledge that Moslems were successful when they remained loyal to their Qu'ran centuries ago, when they have modernized either with nationalism, socialism or capitalism they were left behind. I would like to hear some explanation why Islam (or Islamists) would want to moderate when they are on the move towards victory everywhere against practically everybody? Islam(or Islamists) are well ahead with their colonization in the West in Europe and in America. Especially, in both places Islam(or Islamist )have local non Moslem defenders on the political left. Moderate "Islam" has had no future, it never has.
