Islamist vs. moderate

Reader comment on item: The Condition of Radical Islam Today

Submitted by Arild Ejsing (Denmark), Feb 9, 2016 at 02:30

For a muslim earthly life has only one meaning or goal and that is to earn a ticket to paradise. If an islamist to a moderate muslim point out that according to the Koran he because of his way of doings and/or thinking will go to hell in stead of paradise I believe that he then will be willing to do anything to regain the chance of going to paradise. In other words any muslim might be a potential islamist doing things in panic that he otherwise would find disgusting.
