I have been a muslim for all my life and I swear this is the first time im hearing this word. what does it mean?

Whats this ? reverse psychology? you guys are crying about the silence of the moderates?? and when a muslim shows up condemning terrorism and extremism you accuse them of trickery and lying?

what do you expect them to do? condemn their own religion??

You guys are afraid of the very same idea you're asking for . you wont accept the fact that there are liberal muslims so that you would further validate your nonsense bashing of islam and muslims all together. But theres hope, my wife, who is jewish, is very active with the the israeli-palestian youth organiztion to promote peace and dialogue.
