Just for one second we believe the myth of " Moderate Islam " or " Moderate Muslim " , But who will take guarantee that future generations of these so called moderate muslims will not become radical ???

Eg. Muslim guest workers or early immigrants migrated to Europe were just busy earning their bread & butter. they kept low profiles and were considered as " moderates " . Now their second generation, which was born and brought up in modern / secular / western environment of West, is getting radicalised day by day. They are resorting to voilence against common civilians as well as Police Patrols. This is too much.

They openly boast " we are here to stay and make a Islamic Europe " " Islam is answer for Europe " , " Your sept 11 is on the way " " Death to Europe " , " Hang Pope " , " Kill those who spoke against our prophet " ,etc , etc.

In the same way , If Civilised World unites and we together defeat the enemy so called " Militant Islam " " Radical Islam " , " Islamo - fascists " Jehadi Muslims " etc ( or any other more politically correct name which you seem appropriate or suitable ". And we establish rule of Moderate Muslims or Moderate Islam " for few decades.

The muslim grievances will continue and it will keep boiling inside . Till Mecca exists , Islam will exist , Till Islam exist Koran will exist , Till Koran exists Jehad will exist and bloodshed will continue...
