Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Sep 7, 2010 at 12:04

I go along with your conclusion that :", radical Islam is the problem and moderate Islam is the solution"" but my question remains: What does moderate Islam do to help combat radical Islam?

We have yet to hear from moderate Islam their sentiment about any ongoing event related to Islamism. They are so moderate that they are silent when they should voice a concern,and maybe that is their mistake, especially if they wish to get sympathy from us.

I am sad to say that Mr Curtis may be right as he is looking at the way Islam expanded in Europe to the point that pretty soon, we will not recognize Europe for what it was.

Let me use numbers reported by Time magazine in their Aug 30th edition, where 4 European countries , Germany, France, UK and Spain with a populatin of 255 million have 6654 mosques,while the US with over 300 million people has 1900 mosques.

I am tempted to think that within less than 10 years, 1900 will become more thant 6000 and then we will start feeling the pinch, the way Europe does.

The other part thast troubles me is the name the CORDOBA house,when we know that Cordoba, Spain was the capital of the Arab world of the 12th to 15th century and its name means the ocupation of a foreign land

Is this what we want?
