Silent Moderate Muslims

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by farmchickisr (Israel), Sep 18, 2010 at 13:20

Unfortunately, those who practise Islam tend not to be open minded to other ideas regarding life as a Muslim. Therefore, those who are not radicalists, are not allowed to make their opinions/ideas known if they tend to be moderates, they're simply put to death.

So you can debate that not all muslims are radical killers in the name of jihad, but if no other muslims are speaking out against the violence, terrorism and warfare, so it is as if there are no moderates. Until a brave new muslim is willing to speak out against the terrorism, we have only the radicals to work with.
