Abdul Khan, you wrote: "I forgot to mention , Dr. Pipes is trying to classify Islam as Radical and Moderate Islam , but there's no such thing as Radical Islam. Islam in its core is based on the idea of Political/Radical/Militant Islam , and there has never been a serious attempts to modify the overall shape of the religion , and whoever tried to modify and alter the behavior has faced torture , social alienation and even death ."

You are so right !!. You must have seen so many of us have been saying this on this board for such a long time that there is no "moderate" Islam or "moderate" Muslim. It is all one islam and it is all radical as is clear from Quranic teachings. Yet, many of our experts, main stream media, politicians, and neolibs(neo-liberals) are in utter denial and continue to call for the rise of "moderate" Muslims. How come so far their calls have gone unanswered?? A few isolated voices do not constitute existence of moderate Muslims.

What better can one expect, from these neolibs and their followers when a senior huamn rights ACLU attorney, Steven Watt appearing on Al Jazeera TV show equates "rendition flights" to beheadings done by the followers of pure Islam, aka, terrorists and nobody is there to tell him the difference between losing life as a result of beheading versus remaining alive after rendition flights. Go figure!!!
