Moderate Muslims Also Live In Fear

Reader comment on item: The Clash to End All Clashes?

Please do not forget that "moderate-Muslims" are just as much in danger at this time and collectively live in fear of making a public stand against the current unrest. Why? They too would be targeted by Muslim extremists who have been insulted by the published cartoon depictions of their prophet, Muhammad, and who are demanding vengeance.

According to Fundamental Islamic theology practiced throughout the Mid East, any Muslim who befriends, assists, or takes sides with a Jew, Christian or any Unbeliever (non-Muslim) is in danger of retribution, attack and even of being murdered.

Moderate-Muslims who dare speak out against the extreme Muslim groups may eventually need to find refuge in a safe-house for their own protection and safety - even within the borders of any Western country where they may live. This will go on as long as fundamental Islamic clerics continue to incite hatred and violence as we are seeing at this time.
