Moderate Islam is an oxymoron

Reader comment on item: [The Search for Moderate Islam:] A Reply to Lawrence Auster

Moderate Islam is practised by those who do not live by the tenets of Islam. In that sense, the civilized world has to be happy that a significant majority of Muslims are not practising muslims in a true sense and they are moderate.

Islam is best when it is least practised. It is a brutal religion aiming for a brutal outcome, brutal practices for its adherents. This Islamic belief system which calls itself a religion is aiming for retrogressive, regressive measures to take its belief system backwards when other religions tend to be dynamic, progressive.

This religion needs a Tsunami 'paradigm' shift.
