in response to reader comment: Searching for a needle in a haystack

If it's moderate then we can safely assume that it has reformed itself beyond the boundaries of the political paradigm that we call Islam and should be called something else. To put into context my above assertion searching for moderacy in Islam is a hazardous eneterprise particularly if it involves visiting the xenophobic and tribal hell hole that is Arabia. More like searching for a piece of hay in a stack of needles than a needle in a haystack.
