I have seen no evidence of moderate muslims only silent ones or ones who have left islam. Moderate muslims are like the dark matter of astronomy. Never seen, but we're supposed to belive in its influence.

In 'moderate' Turkey this christmas Andkronos reports: 'Turkey's 100,000-strong Christian community was on Monday hoping that Christmas this year would pass uneventfully without further sectarian attacks such as that earlier this month against an Italian Catholic priest - the latest of several in little over a year.'

In Cyprus, also ruled by Turkey, GreekNews reports: 'During the morning service on Christmas at the Church of Agios Synesios at Rizokarpaso, located in the northern Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus, so-called "police officers" of the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime entered the church, ordered the priest to stop the liturgy, forced the priest and the Christian Orthodox Cypriot worshippers attending the service out of the church and proceeded to lock its doors.'

The West needs to support Christanity as an ally versus islamicism as moderate muslims seem to be invisible.
