Where are the Moderate Muslims?

Reader comment on item: Radical Islam's Hypocrisy

Submitted by Drummer (United States), Jan 18, 2005 at 12:31

If there are really moderates who believe and practice Islam out there, either in some western nation or in the United States, why haven't we heard a rousing public condemnation, by their leaders, of the activities of those who you caterogize as "radical islamists"?

If a society makes no effort to expunge a cancer which is growing within it, then it follows that all members of that society will eventually be tarred with the same brush.

Your recent atricles would seem to refute your basic premise that there IS such a thing as a "moderate Muslim".
