The fault of 'moderate' Muslim organizations in their (Islam's) image.

http://tks.nationalreview.com/archives/089579.asp A TIPPING POINT ON ISLAM'S REPUTATION
"I stand by my reaction of the past couple days. But I've also come to a depressing conclusion.
A significant chunk of the American public, including a number of prominent thinkers on the right, have concluded that the problem with Islam… is Islam."

Well, in order to understand this phenomenon of 'not hearing moderate Islam', you might want to take for example that group 'CAIR' that plays as "moderate Muslims voice in America", that we all know how "moderate" exactly they are, starting from their support for the Hamas butchers or their call for 'Islam is not in America to be equal to other religions, but to DOMINATE over others.'

Meaning that when CAIR is now issuing a "condemnation of the violence" over the cartoon bloody Jihad:

A.) We do not "hear" them.
B.) Their words are accepted by their masses as "propaganda to the west", because "CAIR" and the like are 'just like us' would the radical violent or "normal" violent Muslim say.
C.) They have managed to create a notion in many chunks of American society -- left or right-- that maybe 'there is no such a thing as a real moderate Muslim'.

Whether it's CAIR or it's that typical 'moderate' Muslim that condemns Islamic Jihad butchery with the added "but, but" --in as much as Americans are so peace loving and tolerant people-- have been proving that the problem is in their mainstream, or how many normal Americans have put it: "The problem with Islam is Islam".
