Safraz,

The Muslim middle. They are our allies in this fight. Okay, where are they? Where are the voices raised in outrage when acts of terrorism are perpetuated on the innocent? Discussing your outrage in your "moderate" mosque doesn't count. Talking about how horrible it is with your friends at home or in coffee shop doesn't count. All one ever hears are the infuriating mouths of organizations like CAIR screaming about more than equal rights for muslims.

The world is on a collision course. Two different centuries are about to collide. Moderate muslims will not get special treatment at that point. If you as a moderate muslim can't police your own and turn in the "bad" muslims how do you expect non-muslims to know the differrence? If you wish to continue to enjoy the freedoms of western society you need to realize that soon those freedoms will be seriously curtailed because of your radical brothers and sisters.

If a nuclear or biological attack occurred on US soil, do you truly think that at this point in history's timeline that you as a moderate muslim would be safe? It would be open season. The US government would not have the luxury of discernment. They wouldn't know the good ones from the bad ones. Internment camps would become a reality. The muslim middle needs to get off their collectve complacent behinds and start doing something about the problem within their own ranks. If you are the biggest allies in the war on terror, start acting like it.
