so called moderate muslims will never be heard because they themselves according to their holy books are "INFIDELS" . Christians who are called fundamentalists are those who practice turning the other cheek, loving your enemies,etc.etc. Moderate muslims and moderate christians are not practicing their Faith. How can you be moderate? The bible say's that"the Luke warm will be spit out of my mouth" Either you fully practice the faith or you are a liar.

A fundamentalist christian is one who (against the wisdom of the world) turns the other cheek, sincerely loves his enemies,wishes only good to those that would harm him.

There should be no compromise . If you look at the tenants of iSLAM, then your mandate is to islamise the world through violence if the infidel does not bow to you.

The Christian mandate is to Christianise the world through turning the other cheek, loving your enemies, pray for those who persecute you. In other words exemplifying the life of Jesus Christ

You fundamental moslems will exemplify the life of your prophet mohamed , and society will see a degradation of civilisation. As is obvious within your own society, you will retard the evolution of mankind and keep him in darkness until another Jesus Christ advances upon this world and returns it to the glory that it was once meant to be. A society in which every form of choice is endowed to each individual. We were not created to wear burkas. Adam and Eve were naked in Paradise.

Freedom of choice involves being exposed to every form of indulgence,and having the CHOICE to choose between good and evil. That choice is what makes us individuals. God does not want a body of automatims, God wants a body of individuals who God can have a relationship with.

Without choice their are no individuals, and without individuals there are no relationships.
with others or with God
