Can I then conclude that there is no such thing as a "moderate" muslim or indeed a moderate Islam other than a secularized version of it ?"

I agree with your conclusion 100% that there are no "moderate" Muslims. It's only a myth propagated by Islam apologists. I have said before on this board, there are no "moderate" Muslims or "moderate" Islam. They are all following the same ideology and that is 100% brutal, violent radical Islam with the aim to conquer and vanquish non-Muslims. Period. It is just not possible to secularize Muslims - if they do become secular, they cease to Muslims!!!

You consider these Muslims as your friends, however, do you know if they consider you as their friend???
