Just as every bearded, gown dressed, non-drinking, namaz leading mullah is not a terrorist, similarly every clean-shaven muslim that speaks English with Oxford accent, who dresses up immaculately in their suits, enjoys his whisky and follows a liberal lifestyle isn't necessarily a moderate.

Founder of pakistan, loved his whiskey, ate ham, married a non muslim and did things which we dont associate with an islamist. But the man mobilised muslims in the name of islamist and was directly responsible for violence and islamic terror last century.

Muslims have been fooling around America and the west for a long time. The problem indeed is with islam and our wooly eyed understanding of islamic ideology.
