In search of a moderate Muslim..

Reader comment on item: Stephen Schwartz and the Center for Islamic Pluralism

The ideology of the Muhammedian fanatics differs only in time and setting from all Muhammedians. What makes a Muslim a fanatic is the personality of the individual, not the content of Islam. Islam is a fanatical ideology. The individual Muslim may or may not choose to be fanatic, but it is well within the franchise of Islam to be fanatic. The reality of Muhammedian fanatics and the sheer numbers means all Muhammedians are suspect until proven otherwise.
