Moderate Muslims

Reader comment on item: Jihad in America: Grand Deception

Submitted by Mark (Canada), Nov 14, 2012 at 12:51

The comment is always made, not all Muslims are radical, and I agree. But I do question the statement being made as a helpful point. Look at many European cities today with large Muslim populations. Regardless of the "moderate ratio" we see laws being changed and laws being broken in the name of Islam, and the moderates can, in most cases, do nothing. Would it not be better to tackle the teachings themselves? After all, even the moderate Muslim has trouble qualifying "Islam as a religion of peace" with the teachings when confronted with many of terrorist verses found through out the Quran and Hadiths. It is nice to side with moderate Muslims, but will it do us in Canada or the USA any good?
