Essential requirements for the emergence of moderate muslims

Reader comment on item: British Opinion Surveys from an Islamist Hell
in response to reader comment: "Moderate" Muslims?

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Sep 1, 2013 at 20:33

Dear Dr Pipes,

When muslim mothers and fathers realize that the economic cost of defending Islam at all costs is more than the cost of letting Islam survive on its own merits, moderate Islam will emerge. This realization will come one day or the other. If the Islamic world did not have so much oil wealth, this realization would have come much sooner.

Every day when one faction of people in Islamic countries runs after the blood of another faction, is a day lost in terms of productivity. These losses are happening every moment of every day. How many residents of the Islamic countries realize that these losses are occurring? Freedom loving people around the world need to repeat this point every single day until this point is driven home. How many new poors were created in Syria today? In Egypt? Who/what is responsible for it? When will it stop?
