Jaladhi laments again: "Examples of "moderate, democratic, secular Muslim nations, please???Where do we find them? Not on this planet!!!"

This is the problem if someone is ignorant of the issue, if someone do not know what is extremist and what is moderate. For Jaladhi those moderates are only those democratic and secular but these two characteristics never define a moderate muslim, this is just an erronous assumption of jaladhi!

Moderate Muslims are simply those who are true Muslims who are not narrow-minded and truly grasp the essence of the Holy Quran who believed that islam is a peaceful religion, that there is no compulsion in religion, that some verses in the Holy Qur;an were revealed during the time of war and must be applied also during the time of war! that apostates never be killed unless that apostate is aggressive and want to kill muslims! etc!!! You can add more and more!!! Do you want to know where these muslims now? Just eliminate Taliban, Al- Qeada and ignorant muslims by name in the equation and you can find a lot of them, almost 95%!

Extremists are those who misinterpret verses of the Holy Qur;an, those who regarded Jews and Christians as enemies and those who want non-muslims be forcibly converted to Islam, etc!!! you can add more and more!!
