Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: Hijab is more sinister than burqa or niqab

I fully agree with Mumin Salih. Niqab is clear anouncement that they are extremists. Hijab is very deceiving and tells you that they are so called "moderates". Actually "Moderate Islam" is deadlier, unlike the common belief.. Here is what Dr. Harabi, an islam scholar, a professor in London who studied islam and terrorism for 30 years writes in his book "God's Tears"

"Unfortunately Islam is based on fanatical devotion to the Qur'an and Muhammad's examples above everything else. Muhammad used the most vile and horrible methods such as ethnic cleansing, secret assassinations, kidnappings, robbery, deceit and cunning in the propagation of Islam and domination of other people. Such has become the morality of Islamic politics broadly and generally for 1400 years, despite tactical withdrawals, and this is codified in scores after scores of violence generating and hate-breeding Qur'anic verses. The terrorists get all the moral support they need from the Qur'an while the `good Muslims' do neither challenge its divine basis nor read it except at times in classical Arabic which the latter do not understand but still revere as God's word".

"The fact, that the vast majority of the so-called moderate Muslims denounce the reformists, shows that they are not willing even to take the first step to reducing violence. Moderate Islam has never agreed to reform the Qur'an and anyone who tries to do so is branded and persecuted as an apostate by the very common Muslims. The so-called moderate Muslims leave the violent basis of Islam unchallenged for the terrorist to implement, while they present the ritualistic side to the world and thereby deceive it. Moderate Islam is more deadly because while the terrorists are clear enemies, the moderates make inroads into `infidel' lands, and deceive the host cultures until the terrorists could do the dirty work. Without the moderate Islamic fa├žade, the terrorists cannot survive because they will be quickly exposed...
