Viewing islam with a perfect lens

Reader comment on item: Once considered anti-Islam, senior scholar says he's now in the middle
in response to reader comment: Who is afraid of Islam?

Submitted by Bernie (South Africa), Aug 24, 2010 at 03:03

The evidence to support the idea that there is no difference between radical and moderate Islam is overwhelming.Despite the many violent Suras that advocate warfare, one just needs to consider the violent responses when a book critical of islam was written or cartoons drawn depicting the prophet against the passive response by moderates to murderous suicide bombers acting in the name of islam. Thus radical and moderate Islam are two faces of the same coin.
