Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by Brian T (France), Sep 9, 2010 at 03:24

Your article was interesting and sometimes inspiring, but I must respectfully disagree on one major point. You said that radical Islam was the problem and moderate Islam was the solution. You are wrong; there is no such thing as a sustainable moderate Islamic belief. The axioms upon which it works, namely the Koran, do not lend themselves to moderation. The solution is simple, and totally politically unacceptable of course. It is the complete outlawing of Islam, and a de-islamification process in America and Europe. Just as there was a denazification process in Germany after the war. After all, would you have said then that the solution to militant Nazism was moderate Nazism? That would have been an oxymoron!
