Moderate Islam?

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by Johnny (Sweden), Sep 9, 2010 at 10:45

How do you see the difference between a moderate Muslim and a non-moderate Muslim? Where there moderate Nazis too? Moderate Muslims are Muslims that do not follow the Koran and are not Muslims per definition in the first place. The Koran is full off death and hatred. "Kill all unbelievers." A new Koran without hate and death must be the first thing to provide to "moderate" Muslims. Just what the US did with Shintoism in Japan after WW2, they teared out hate and death pages. But there is a Muslim identity, like there is a Christian identity, both have many different ethnic groups, but when the war intensifies against radical Muslims, who will the moderate Muslims side with? If you can convince the moderate Muslims to fight the radical Muslims, great I say. To me it seems safer if ALL Muslims live in Muslim countries and not in the West, that was what nature created in the first place, that is why God gave us different countries in the first place. A moderate Muslim can become a radical Muslim.
