This is what Dr Habira, an ex-muslim scholar of islam and terrorism writes in his book "God's Tears"

"The fact, that the vast majority of the so-called moderate Muslims denounce the reformists, shows that they are not willing even to take the first step to reducing violence. Moderate Islam has never agreed to reform the Qur'an and anyone who tries to do so is branded and persecuted as an apostate by the very common Muslims. The so-called moderate Muslims leave the violent basis of Islam unchallenged for the terrorist to implement, while they present the ritualistic side to the world and thereby deceive it. Moderate Islam is more deadly because while the terrorists are clear enemies, the moderates make inroads into `infidel' lands, and deceive the host cultures until the terrorists could do the dirty work. Without the moderate Islamic fa├žade, the terrorists cannot survive because they will be quickly exposed. History is replete with example after example of this typically Muslim deceitful strategy of advance.

The evidence that moderate Muslims protect the terrorists is as follows: As soon as the terrorists strike somewhere in the west, (such as the London underground on 7th July), the moderates appear on the television and other media with the following deceits: "The terrorists were not Muslims; The terrorists came from abroad; The terrorists were Israelis or western intelligence agencies who want to give a bad name to Islam; We are under threat from the far right; We need protection from the far right". The moderate Muslims do not allow Islamic reformers and critics on their scores of television channels though they use every available media to propagate that they are the victims of non-Muslims and thus incite hate and anger. More evidence comes from that while the moderates seldom report the terrorists to the police, they force the reformists to run for their lives.

The mindset of the terrorist is the extreme manifestation of that of a devout Muslim. The two vary only in form and modus operandi, not in nature. That is why we do not see active resistance to terrorism from within Islam. For example, the Arab League has made no serious efforts to bring the Iraqi factions to live in peace. Likewise, the `moderate' Muslim leaders in always refuse to accept that there are Islamic terrorists in Britain
