Reader comment on item: Identifying Islamists through Interrogations
in response to reader comment: All Muslims are Islamists!

Submitted by Philip (United Kingdom), Jan 18, 2016 at 07:59

All Moslems are Islamists in so far as a) most would not object to a Globalised Islam. b) Most would not oppose those trying to establish a Globalised Islam because c) most do not want to be seen working with the khuffar (Infidel) in any way against their own religion. Only a very few, a truly tiny minority come to the West to escape Islam or convert out of Islam. So by definition most Muslims are passive Islamists, the water in which the Islamist/Jihadist fish swims. At a rough estimate I'd say if you let in 10 Muslims you let in 2 Islamists and 1 Jihadist; If you let in 1000 Muslims you might let in 1 or 2 'moderates' whatever that means in their terms. Most so-called 'moderates' when push came to shove would turn out to be 'passive' Islamists... IMHO.
