But you know the answers to your questions. Those few "moderates" courageous enough to speak out against the practicing Muslims - and let's call them what they are: NOT extremists, but "practicing" Muslims simply following the words of thee Qur'an and the examples of Mohammed - know better than anyone that their lives become cheap once they speak out publicly against those practicing Muslims. Wafa Sultan has fatwas on her head for speaking out publicly. How many practicing Muslims would love to see her head kicked down the street and truley believe she should be killed? How many do you think are actually planning to kill her if they can find her? I'm guessing thousands. They will be as heroic among Islamists as the Dutch Muslim who killed Theo vanGogh, or whoever kills a Danish cartoonist (who now has to hide secretly, their lives in constant danger, and completely ruined). Islamists are proud that they have driven these people into hiding and have destroyed their lives.

You found the right words, and being in Indonesia I'm sure you know what you're talking about.
