Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims

It is indeed true that extremists are just very few in every Muslim country. Most of them are self-centered and narrow-minded!!! Yet extremists are very much powerful because they have guns ready to kill and well-publicized because of their evil activities of bombing civilians and killing those who opposed them!!!

Extremists and terrorists are simply not Muslims, but disillusioned selfcentred people who wanted to be famous, yet have no means to achieve it unless by doing extraordinary things, in this case evil things such as bombings and murder. Moderates are the vast majority of Muslims but they are just silent and passive in countering the extremists!

most of the moderates are just very busy in their everyday life, give no attention to the extremist after disowning them as evil and will just be satisfied to feel disgusted of the evil deeds done by those ignorant and self-centered extremists! Anyway, only those who have guns also can stop this terrorists, in this case the government and their police and military!
