Quran's verses versus "Moderation".

Reader comment on item: Moderate Islam: Western Ally or Western Myth?

Submitted by Charles Griffith (United States), Dec 28, 2009 at 20:43

I don't understand how Muslims can be "moderate" with human rights, women's equality and profess to try to live peacefully among us Christians and Jews.... while at the same time observing those oft-quoted verses which clearly state otherwise,at least in English, as I don't read Arabic. Let's hear some Arabic speaking "moderates" explain away those explicit verses to kill us non-Muslims. There just has to be massive hypocrisy, one way or the other. Then, what does the Quran say specifically about hypocrites?...in Arabic? There is endless circular evasion from Muslims.
