What is a 'normal' Muslim?

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Muslims should stand up to brainwashing techniques

In your post, Horatio, it seems to me that your use of the term 'normal Muslims' is faulty in itself. From day one, they are brainwashed and never know anything different. You are not allowed to EVER doubt what you are being taught for fear of death. They're never going to expose the 'jihadist' (or as any normal human being would term it-- 'terrorist') in their midsts. They are passive aggressive and sing praises to Allah for the murders being done by these terrorists. Of course, I'm sure they see it as singing praises to the acts of martyrs who are only trying to do Allah's work. I know some will paint them as warm, loving, beautiful people, but that picture that we're all supposed to believe while the reality is everywhere around us is just a phony portrayal that is meant to fool the masses.
