What a joke

Reader comment on item: Identifying Moderate Muslims

Submitted by Munir (United Kingdom), Nov 27, 2004 at 09:43

When Muslims try to please non-Muslims, (who are always saying we need moderate Muslims), by being "moderate" (i.e conforming to the whims of extremist non-Muslims), they are dismissed and it is said they are only pretending and there is no such thing as a "moderate muslim"!! . The same happens with "terrorism" - non-Muslims are always demanding that Muslims speak out publicly against it, but when they do, many non-Muslims say it is just a facade!

You can't win!! Against such a stream of irrational Islamophobic hatred there is no possiblity of dialogue- so why be a "moderate" Uncle Tom?
