Reader comment on item: On Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: Well, Islam IS the problem and the Muslims who are most Israel-friendly are not the "moderates"

In my opnion, perusing ideas like fighting radicals with moderate muslims and so on would lead us nowhere. It would only mean that we are ready to accomodate some diluted version of the violent ideology called islam and Kuran and so on conjured up by Muhammad. I've always felt that we could frustrate the adherents of this violent cult if we kept on saying always in the media that islam is false, it is evil and it cannot be counted with religions like Judaism or Christianity. The conviction and confidence of these 7th century cult supporters could break slowly over time.

I think it is absolutely doable and it would really help in curbing any further erosion of people from other religions as well to this cult - as we can see that most of the converts to this cult are generally criminals or misfits or outcasts from the society or who have some or the other grudge against society etc and they most of the times join this cult out of ignorance and immaturity.
