do muslims and islamists follow a different doctrine?

Reader comment on item: [President Bush and] Naming the Enemy

Submitted by Xavier (India), Nov 4, 2005 at 06:42

Where is the line separating a Muslim from an islamist?

The Muslims didn't draw that line and don't make that division. "Islamist" is just a ...term some ...intellectual" came up with. In any case moderate Muslims provide a cover for the backs of hard-line Muslims by repeating that 'real islam is not like that' or other such platitudes.

So the rest of mankind is fooled until the next act of terror.

It is obvious that the moderate Muslims are as guilty as the militant ones or so-called "Islamists".

The difference between a Nazi and a Nazist please?
