Aren't all Muslims Islamists ?

Reader comment on item: Trump: You Should Ban Islamists, Not Muslims

Submitted by Bindair Dunndat (United States), Dec 31, 2015 at 01:14

Muslims have only one law, Sharia, from which they cannot really dissent. Jihad is required of all, but some are allowed to stay behind to pray and take care of the daily things of life while the fighters do their work. This Is specifically mentioned in the Islamic texts. All are then complicit in the extremes. There is no distinction between Muslims and Islamists, except perhaps in the degree of laxity, that is, the non-Islamist is the non-Muslim.
