Is There Moderate Islam?

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

Submitted by Ilbert Phillips (United States), Dec 28, 2009 at 22:46

I see no evidence of there being moderate Islam. I do not believe that our policy should be based upon the "possibility of change." I recently read a short history on Thomas Jefferson and Islam (the Barbary Coast Wars) and we seem to be in the same place. As we wage our war against the terrorists, we have to look at the reality of what is occurring.
