skmiller, you wrote: "Islam lived last 1400 years like this way and it will take long time to change the old habits. Nothing to do with the tribal mentatlity. Where ever islam spread that way of living imbibed in their life style."

I totally agree with you. Middle east's problems are those generated by following Islamic teachings from Quran, hadith and siras. Wherever in the world Muslims live the same problems occur and they are just as backward in any other country as they are in the middle-east. Thus the problems of Muslims arise from Islam and not from tribalism of any kind. (See my earlier post)

As to moderate Islam/Muslim - one has to ask what is a moderate Islam/Muslim. So far we have not seen evidence of their existence. So our hopes of solving problems of Islam with a moderate Islam/Muslim are completely misplaced!!!

Muslim minds are controlled by their imamullahs. As long as these guys do not modernize and denounce the atrocious passages of Quran, viz., the Medina verses, there is no hope in the hell for any kind of "moderate" Muslim/Islam to emerge on Earth!!!
