Moderate Muslims can't ever take a critical look at their religion!

Kudos to you for writing a balanced rebuttal to Ansari's NYTimes article, though I disagree with some of your agreements with him on terrorism. Terrorists will always get weapons of their choice no matter how many new laws are passed to make it harder. You should have sent this reply to NYTImes. I am sure they will gladly publish it. Nah - no such luck from the publisher of record - they are only interested in publishing lies and semi-lies by the likes of Ansari.

You know there is no moderate Islam and no moderate Muslims. They all pretend to be moderate but when the chips are down they all revert to the natural state of Islam. Don't expect Ansari answer any of your questions that you have raised. I had seen the title of the article which had indicated what one might expect in the article. Yet the article was good to soothe the false Western sensibilities and I am sure he got encouraging(not critical and honest) response from most of liberal readers of NYTimes.
