Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims

Were we to, as you say ,"empower, Promote and Fund" these "moderate" groups, would it not result in thousands of "chameleon's" enjoying their new status and rewards as they slowly assimilate into the fabric of society, only to re-emerge in the future with their extremist views?
