"A radical Muslim is someone who says that all non-Muslims must be either converted or killed NOW.
A moderate Muslim is someone who says that all non-Muslims must be converted NOW but for both humanitarian and practical reasons the reprobates can be killed LATER ON."

there is no such thing as a radical muslim. the ppl whom u call radical muslims are actually hypocrites. they are not muslims. they only distort the message of Islam to justify their cause.

and moderate muslims are the true muslims. they dont want to kill non-muslims.
after reading ur comments i thought that u are 1 of those ppl who think that Islam permits or commands muslims to kill non-muslims.if u really believe this, then you are wrong.

Islam is a religion of peace, but certain 'muslim' groups have distorted its message commit sins but think that they are doing something which is commanded to them by God.
