... "radical Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution."

Reader comment on item: UCLA's Embarrassment: Prof. Abou El Fadl

Submitted by George Keselman (United States), Jan 7, 2015 at 09:43

What are foundations for radical Islam and "moderate" one? Are they not all the same? The Quran, the Hadith, and Sharia. I suggest, maybe naïvely, using terms 'The Literal Islam' and 'A Filtered Out Islam' correspondingly instead. That might help understanding what 'moderate' means.
