Dennis, you wrote:"I've said it before and I'll say it again. There is no such thing as a moderate muslim. There are only those who openly espouse islamic conquest of the world, and those who sit on the sidelines and silently applaud them as they go about their work.

Sidelines sitters ("moderate muslims") do not openly agree with the jihadists, but in their heart of hearts, hope they will succeed. Should the jihadists eventually win out, the so-called moderates will be the first to jump on the sharia bandwagon."

You are absolutely right!!! I have also said it a number of times in my earlier posts, there is no such thing called "moderate Muslim". They may pretend to be moderate on the outside but the core in the heart of their hearts is all solid radical as the religion teaches them!!! Then again the myth of "moderate Mulsim" is created by Muslim apologists in the West. The sooner we abandon this illusion and deal with Islam/Muslim as they really are, the better off we all will be.
