Moderate Muslims...What Moderate Muslims?

We are witnessing what happens to moderate Muslims when 70% of a country is Islamic...Egypt.

I have listened carefully to the words of Egyptian Copt, Fr. Zakaria Botros. He said "We have lived with Islam in Egypt for 1300 years, so do not try to tell me about moderate Muslims. They can be your neighbors and friends until the majority vote for sharia law; then your neighbors and friends turn on you like you are some kind of animal".

There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. There are good Muslims, the ones who attend Friday mosque, who pray five-times-daily, who take the jihad, who pay the zakat faithfully; then there are the bad Muslims. the ones who do none of these things but assimilate into a society.

These Bad Muslims will live alongside their Christian and Jewish neighbors until the sharia becomes the law of the land. Then they are forced to become Good Muslims because, if they don't, they will be accused of blasphemy or apostasy and face the penalty, usually death. So they convert to the Good Islam, the devout Islam, in order to save their lives and their family.
