Moderate Muslims Just One Step Away

Reader comment on item: Finding Moderate Muslims - More Questions

Submitted by Mike (United States), Nov 2, 2008 at 22:08

Everyone who follows the world of Islamists knows that the focal point for recruitment and money are the Mosques around the world. That is where the deals are done and the Inman preach in favor of Sharia law and murder of the infidels.

Everyone moderate Muslim is at high risk of becoming an Islamist.

Why, because at one time or another they attend paryer services at the Mosque even if it is only during Ramadan.

Once they are at the Mosque, especially if they have money, they are asked to donate and in fact even pressured to give charitble donations, much of which winds up in the hands of Islamists.

Moderate Muslims are also continually subjected to Islamist propaganda on Muslim television networks, Muslim newspapaers radio, etc.

The only way for a moderate Muslim to be at low risk from becoming an Islamist or donating money to Islamists is for them to totally separate from all other Muslims. They may have moderate friends but all it takes is for one of their moderate friends to get moved toward the Islamist perspective. This friend will then pressure the moderate to join him.

In the end the practical reality is that it doesn't matter how you define a Muslim moderate, all Muslims if not already Islamists are at high risk of financially supporting Islamists and/or becoming one themselves.
