I am a moderate Muslim!

At least this how people think of me. In reality, I don't believe in religions at all but I have to pretend to survive.

There are many others like me in every part of world, but they do not make themselves known to avoid the Islamic death penalty.

I think Dr. Pipes article is spot on. So far, the west did nothing to protect us or encourage us to come and speak out. It is ironic that Islamic fundamentalists have been encouraged not only by the Saudi money but also by the western system. Many Muslim radicals, probably all of them, do not even bother to seek employment in the west because they do not need to, and dedicate their time to preach hate.

Ex Muslims know everything about Islam and can be a very useful tool to fight terrorism. Currently, they can only express themselves on the internet websites.
