Reader comment on item: Radical Islam as Its Own Antidote[, Argues Reuel Gerecht]
in response to reader comment: Moderation in Islam is flawed

Submitted by Daniel Schultz (United States), Dec 30, 2005 at 10:29

As a recent concerned individual and having read about a dozen books on Islam, it's roots and history, I concur that the idea that a moderate Moslem is not faithful to his religion if he espouses moderate or modern ideas.

Like it or not, the ultimate weapon against this... religon will be the use of force to defeat it. No amount of rationalization or apeasement will work with individuals who have closed minds, ignorance and blind faith in a faulty, destructive religion.
God is love and not hate !.
