Perhaps there is indeed no moderate Islam

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism
in response to reader comment: There is no moderate Islam

Submitted by Rajeev (United States), Sep 10, 2010 at 00:49

When I want to find moderate Christianity, I do not have to go too far: from the Pope, to Mrs Clinton, to David Petraeus to Robert Gates, to Angelina Jolie, there is no dearth of people who criticized the idea of Quoran burning for one reason or the other. On the other hand, the moderate Muslim voices that I heard was repeating over and over again that the so called ground zero mosque is there for harmony, understanding and peace (and no such harmony, understanding, and peace was needed when it comes to Islamic enclaves of the world).

If something is so difficult to find, perhaps it does not exist.
