There is no moderation in Islam

Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims

Submitted by John (United States), Apr 17, 2007 at 23:08

Daniel, In this you are wrong. There are "nice" people in Islam, but Islam itself is fundamentally flawed and will always result in violence. Islam has been engaged in conquest since it's inception. It is the only one of the great religions that was founded and disseminated primarily by the sword. Nothing has changed. The only difference today is that we are too timid to confront Islam.

Unlike Jan Sobiesko we want to "dialogue". We are fools. Our ancestors defeated Islam in Europe and ensured the survival of the West. Unfortunately, the defeat of the Islamic armies before the gates of Vienna may have been in vain.
