Reader comment on item: Islam and Islamism: Faith and Ideology

Submitted by Truthtalker (United States), May 4, 2013 at 07:24

There is no such thing as moderate Islam - there is only Islam. The Muslims you think are moderate are practicing Taqiyya. If you do not know what that is look it up on you tube - there are many videos that describe it perfectly. Furthermore YOU cant know Islam unless you have read the Koran - something that has always been impossible for westerners to do because it is our of chronological order and context

A cold reading of the Koran makes no sense to non-Muslims who have no familiarity with the two other complementary sacred texts of Islam: the Hadiths (Ahaditha in Arabic), which are the traditions of Mohammed, and the Sira, biographies of Mohammed.

Now there is a version written for westerners - http://www.amazon.com/Simple-Koran-Readable-Understandable-Islamic/dp/0978552881/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1367369982&sr=1-1&keywords=a+simple+koran

Read it and decide for yourself what Islam is.
