It's illegitimate to claim islam is moderate in any way.

Hi Demsci.

The Abrogation Doctrine ('Naskh') is built right into the Qur'an itself. So the many later, more violent and intolerant verses cancel and replace the few earlier, almost tolerant ones.

The only way to "interpret" islam as being in any way "moderate," is to lie about it - which is not a "legitimate" way of doing things at all.

The Qur'an and Muhammad paint all muslims with the same brush, and the Ben Afflecks can either admit it or keep on lying to them selves.
