Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: what is moderate?

Syed is not incorrect. The Muhammedians are a cult. Bound by the teachings of Muhammed, and the mythology and the absolutism of Muhammed produce an arrogance and conviction born of the fanaticism of a unrestrained,aggressive,violent cult. Much like the Hindu Cult of Cali, Muhammed demands complete submission, and total commitment to his teachings and dogma.

Where is the latitude for moderation. A moderate Muhammedian is as a moderate Stalinist or Marxist, simply choosing not to advocate or participate in violence. The Virginia Tech murderer may have been Muhammedian, if the reports are true that he had "Ismail Ax" on his forarm. Muhammed will always be there for anyone wanting to justify violent behavior towards others to revenge imagined slights,insults, or disrespect.
