Muslims need to examine themselves.

Reader comment on item: [Mosque Mischief and] Counting Mosques

Submitted by J.Shearer (United Kingdom), Feb 8, 2003 at 18:21

Thank you Mr Pipes for shining light on the mosques in the West. We now need the light to penetrate in the mosques.

What strikes me in all this is that a large number of people, both Muslim and non-Muslim, wish to separate the fanatic Islamists from moderate muslims. Fair enough. But I wonder why other religions such as Buddhism etc do not have to get the presidential seal of approval for being the religion of peace. Or that we need to differentiate between Christian, Buddhist fanatics and the moderate variety.

I'm afraid such political correctness and will just not do. Muslims have to face the fact that the Quran is one book that sanctions jihad worldwide.
