Fish in water

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

Submitted by Gabriel Toking (Germany), Jan 30, 2005 at 06:36

The moderate muslims are the deep-dark water in which the fish of islamic terror swim, hide, rest and nourish and reproduce themselves. Even if moderate muslims exist, they are no help to us. "Fighting is prescribed to you even if you don't like it" says the kuran. Islam means submisssion and that is program, goal and method. Even if moderate muslims exist, they don't determine the direction of islam.
