There are no moderate Muslims

Reader comment on item: Oklahomans Say No to Sharia
in response to reader comment: Definition of Moderate Muslims or Moderate Islam

Submitted by Michael (United States), Nov 30, 2010 at 08:52

The reason that we don't have a definition of "moderate Muslim" is that the term is an oxymoron. First of all, Islam does not allow one to pick and choose which of its tenets you will believe and follow. And second, if there are "moderate Muslims" why do we not hear of their fight against the terrorists and their supporters, the clerics who preach jihad, the treatment of women as chattel virtually or actually imprisoned in their own homes, and the barbaric punishments under Sharia. All we hear from Islamic "spokesmen" are excuses and whining about intolerance toward Muslims.
