Moderate/good muslims are an indirect help to radical islam

Reader comment on item: Christianity Dying in Its Birthplace

Submitted by Mamdouh (United States), Sep 27, 2005 at 12:34

Good muslims like Shazia have good intentions but indirectly they help radical islam.

Unfortunately Islam is based on fanatical devotion to the Qur'an and Muhammad's examples above everything else. Muhammad used the most vile and horrible methods such as ethnic cleansing, secret assassinations, kidnappings, robbery, deceit and cunning in the propagation of Islam and domination of other people. Such has become the morality of Islamic politics broadly and generally for 1400 years, despite tactical withdrawals, and this is codified in scores after scores of violence generating and hate-breeding Qur'anic verses.

The terrorists get all the moral support they need from the Qur'an while the `good Muslims' do not challenge its divine basis , revere it as God's word, ignore the violent teachings or try to interpret it differently . Terrorists claim universal applicability of quran and hadiths while moderate/good muslims think the violence preached in quran and practised by Mohammed is not supposed to be universally applicable and was for that time only.

The fact that the vast majority of the so-called moderate Muslims denounce the reformists, shows that they are not willing even to take the first step to reducing violence. Moderate Islam has never agreed to reform the Qur'an and anyone who tries to do so is branded and persecuted as an apostate by the very common Muslims. The so-called moderate Muslims leave the violent basis of Islam unchallenged for the terrorist to implement, while they present the ritualistic side to the world and thereby deceive it.

The evidence that moderate Muslims protect the terrorists is as follows: As soon as the terrorists strike somewhere in the west, (such as the London underground on 7th July), the moderates appear on the television and other media with the following deceits: "The terrorists were not Muslims; The terrorists came from abroad; The terrorists were Israelis or western intelligence agencies who want to give a bad name to Islam; We are under threat from the far right; We need protection from the far right". The moderate Muslims do not allow Islamic reformers and critics on their scores of television channels though they use every available media to propagate that they are the victims of non-Muslims and thus incite hate and anger. More evidence comes from that while the moderates seldom report the terrorists to the police, they force the reformists to run for their lives.
