Moderate Muslims?

Reader comment on item: An Arab Prince Denounces Islamism

Submitted by Charlie Griffith (United States), Dec 11, 2014 at 15:09

"Moderate Muslims" seen as some sort of separate set of Muslims set aside from their butchers and destroyers is oxymoronic in that they cannot pick and choose which verses in their Koran that they will deign to obey. Doesn't their Koran say specifically that infidel's throats will be slit and their heads chopped off? How can a "moderate" Muslim choose not to kill me as an obvious infidel in their august judgment? How is my throat to be "moderately" slit? Why can't this "moderate"Muslim sophistry be equated with being just a little bit pregnant?
