>"Dr. Pipes knows moderate Muslims. Perhaps he should ask himself the following questions: Are they moderate because they have run out of ammunition? Are they one sermon away from being radicalized? Are they practicing taqqiya?"<

Yes Gloria, all those so called "moderate" Muslims become fanatics in a nano-second!!! Their outer cover of "moderate" is easily blown off by any world event that they perceive to insulting to them or to Islam and here comes out the radical core of the real Muslim!!!
Of course, I don't think there is a moderate Islam or a moderate Muslim. The historical evidence and the present Muslim behavior through out the world just does not support it.

It is simply a waste of time looking for moderate Muslims in the hope that they will do something vis a vis Islamic terror. It will never happen!!!
