>"I am one of those "unsophisticated" bloggers. I do not think there is such a thing as "radical Islam." There is just "Islam." The "radicals," or the terrorists, are the ones implementing it in its purist, most consistent form. One may as well make the false distinction between Nazism and "radical Nazism" or between Communism and "radical Communism." Islam is more an ideology than it is a religion."<

Agree with you that there is no "moderate" Islam or "radical" Islam or Islam of any other kind. It is just one Islam and it is all radical, There is not even a hint of "moderate" or kinder version of Islam in Quran,hadiths, sira. When Quran orders it's followers to murder non-believers or those who reject Islam, it shows the cruel and radical nature of Islam in just plain and simple words. I believe the fictitious "moderate" Muslim or Islam has been created just to luil us in believing that we have nothing to worry from Muslims. It's only a tiny minority of radicals who are wreaking havoc in this world. The tiny minority never seems to diminish, if anything it always grows. Until we are willing to accept that "it is the religion stupid" nothing meaningful will come out in our fight against this "tiny minority " of extremists!!1
