I am sorry, as far as I can see, there is nothing called moderate Islam!

Reader comment on item: Daniel Pipes fights the worldwide threat of Islamism - from Malibu
in response to reader comment: Moderate Islam

Submitted by Faqi (United States), Mar 7, 2007 at 17:55

We have been made to believe that Islam is hijacked by the terrorists, the mantra repeated often is that "Islam is a religion of peace" and all the terror and death inflicted on the us is not by Islam but by people who have hijacked Islam namely the terrorists. Nothing can be further from the truth. There is no radical Islam, neither is there political Islam nor militant Islam nor moderate Islam. There is only one Islam. Period. The perpetrators of all the Islamic horror that goes on around the world like, 9/11, 7/7, Madrid, Beslan, Bombay, Bali, Dafur and countless others are by the practitioners of the "religion of peace" which is Islam.

Muslims after each act of terror they shout "Allahu Akbar" (Allah is Great). Have any one come across such a practice by the believers of any other religion or dogma; ever shouting out praises of their Gods when perpitrating any act of violence? Absolutely NO.

How could anyone calling themselves practitioners of a religion of Peace even think of acts of such barbarity & cruelty, yet Muslims plan them methodically, cold-bloodly and execute them? Don't look too far; read the daily reports coming from Iraq, where the violence is on Sunni vs Shiite and vice versa - the answer is ISLAM.

The living embodiment of Islam is the Quran, which is a document of exclusion, hatred and violence that shapes the mind set & behavior towards other human beings who are not Muslims or who belong to another sect. This evil stone-age document is ideally suited for retards or people of stunted development. People who prefer to follow blindly than to think for themselves, to HATE than to LOVE, and to seek & celebrate DEATH rather than to celebrate LIFE.

Sadly, Muslims themselves are the ones who are most victimized by Islam. They have inherited this viral psychological disease of hate and violence; they live by it, and transmit it to their young ones. (child suicide bombers is just one example).

A puzzle to non-Muslims: why any intelligent and reasonably sane person would live his life by the dogma of Islam? It is particularly disconcerting when Muslims living in a secular non-Islamic society still follow blindly without questioning or reasoning whether all that is in the Quran, hadiths and siras are true. Just for argument, Abraham never lived in Mecca or Arabia, the furthest he went was what is to Ur in today's Iraq, but they believe that the Kaaba in Mecca was the house that Abraham constructed and the meteorite (the black stone came from paradise).It definitely came from space alright.

The non-Islamic world has a huge problem on its hands right now—the ever-encroaching and multiplying of Muslims. For as long as there are mosques, madrassas, and Islamic centers; peopled by well-paid (by the Saudi Wahabies), highly indoctrinated and strategically placed mullahs and imams; and, as long as there are people who prefer to be led by these Mullahs and treated as children, Islam will flourish anywhere and will pose an existential threat to unbelievers. All the excuses, grievances and reasons given for savagery of the jihadists and Islamofascists are side issues. It is Islam, that is the real problem. It is obvious that there is no cure, the only plausible answer is to separate them and encourage them to leave the West and live the life style they love. ( to be led blindly by illiterate clerics who still live in the 7th century). Leave non-muslims alone to get on with their lives and there will be no conflict. We can get on fine without them.
