Hi Jaladhi Dr Pipes makes a good point that moderate Islam is the answer to radical Islam The problem here is what is moderate Islam? Obama and his administration believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is moderate Islam Now enter Egypt: Egyptians forced Morsi and his MB out of office in July of 2013 and among many reasons many Egyptians regard the MB as a terrorist group So who is right and who is wrong Egyptians or Mr Obama

However, there are many enlightened Muslims in the ME and in the case of Egypt google Islam el-Beheri He is an amazing young man who is trying to end violence in Islam and he advocated that political Islam should be opposed and make Islam a faith and not politics

The great Egyptian historian and secularist Sayyid el-Qemni once said most Muslims do not know what their books say and those that take the time to read the Qur'an and the great commentaries and comprehend what is in them either become apostates or terrorists He does not offer a solution but it is very clear that there is something happening in the ME where Muslims are debating what Islam is really all about and that what is a moderate Muslim and who is not is not black and white
