"Can they now? Are you willing to jettison much of the Koran and the Hadiths? That is what will be required. Start with Sura 9 and end with the disposal of all of Shariah"

There is no need to jettison or dispose of anything. Sharia is only practiced in very few Islamic countries. Most of the Muslim countries are governed by secular dictators.

"I keep seeing this claimed. I do not see it proved."

You do not see it proved because your media only gives airtime to extremists and radicals.

"You get the government you deserve and desire."

(LOL)Sometimes you do and sometimes you dont, depends on how you vote and how the majority votes.

"Which would not be so if the so-called "moderates" did not tacitly support much of what the Islamists say and do."

The average Muslim character tilts more towards emotion than towards reason.
