Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: Moderate Islam and a reformation

Submitted by Rick House (United States), Apr 20, 2007 at 17:43

I'm afraid she is bit on the far edge. She comes across as a Western remake of Islam, a perspective sure to be dismissed by 99.9 percent of muslims worldwide. No, I don't recommend that the West put her forward as a poster child of moderate Islam. Her rhetoric would come back and bite us in the butt. (Watch closely now. PBS is going to get hit by some calculated Muslim outrage soon in response to their Crossroads special.)

Sincerely,

Rick House
