Radical muslims are real muslims, moderate muslims are infidels.

Reader comment on item: Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam

I agree with Dr Pipes on all accounts except on the topic of Radical Islam. The same approach is used by several in the media like Dr. Savage, Glenn Beck , Hannity etc who though are brave enough to fight the islamism but (perhaps for security reasons) keep insisting that true islam is hijacked by terrorists who interpret Quran differently and practice Radical Islam. Nothing can be farther from the truth. Quran is very clear . No interpretation is actually required. Quran says over 40 times:

"Obey Allah, Obey Mohammed"

It also says "Mohammed is your role model" and "Follow Mohammed to follow Allah"

Thus Quran elevates hadiths and Siras to Quran itself. What Mohammed did in his life is true Islam. The only source to know what he did in his life are hadiths and siras written by faithful believers and his desciples. According those sources Mohammed earned livlihood through robbery and raids, he committed genocides,he raided for booty and killed innocents in his raids, he captured wives and daughters of those he raided and had sex with them and whoever doubted him or criticized him he had them asassinated. That is islam . Anything less is apostacy. Quran called the so called moderate muslims who did not fully agree with Mohammed's tactics as hippocrites and called for their deaths (4.89)

Dr Pipes ,you may call them moderate muslims. True islam considers them infidels to be killed by islamic way of beheading.
