Moderate Muslim corners himself!

Moderate Muslim, you walked into a trap from which there is no escape. How easy it is.
MM: "These are not reform rallies by Muslims. They are reform rallies by others who hate Islam"
Oh really? Can you then explain why they are organized by Muslims who want to reform their religion and make it peaceful? People who hate Islam don't become (or remain) Muslim. These rallies are mainly organized by your fellow Muslims who care enough about their religion to realize that it is in urgent need of reform. Yes, they are an aberration, a hundred-thousanth of a percent of all Muslims, but you do need to give those few credit.
So what you are saying, so-called "Moderate" Muslim, is that anyone who wants to reform Islam from a death cult that practices depravity into a truly peaceful religion is a hateful enemy of Islam. You are the perfect example of why Islam has and always will remain the mortal enemy of peace-loving, freedom-loving people around the world.
MM: "Does anyone remember who was being targeted the last time effigies were burned in demonstrations?"
When did this happen at the few Muslim peace rallies? Care to show us? All I remember seeing was a severe lack of Muslims, a handful of Jews calling for peace, and a bunch of American kids protesting the Iraq war. If anything was burned it effigy, it would have been Bush. Your claims are, as always, absurd and unfounded.
And that brings us back to you, Moderate Muslim. Why aren't you attending, organizing, or participating in peace rallies? We've already calculated that after accounting for the hours each year you are mandated to pray, you had over 8,000 hours of free time in the last year. How many of them were spent in actual work to reform Islam? If you aren't happy with the current rallies and claim they're hate rallies, then why are you not forming your own? Are you man enough to answer that question? Or are you going to evade it as usual?
As I've pointed out before, you are far more interested in coming here and denigrating those of us who speak the truth, in spreading propaganda, in trying to defend the depravities of Islam, than you are in reforming it. The more things change, the more they remain the same.
