moderate muslims are a bigger threat than radical muslims

Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims

Hitler failed to conquer Germany with violence, but suceeded by exploiting the political system.

Reaching out to moderate muslims will only enroll and integrate them into Western society. Once muslims have a foothold in American society we will never get them out.

Muslims should be isolated and resisted at every opportunity. They cannot be trusted.

I'm am eternally grateful for Dr Pipes incredible courage and tireless work, but i have to say i am deeply dissappointed by his short-sighted position on moderate muslims.

Would reaching out to moderate nazi's been a good strategy in the 1930's? It would have just made it even more difficult to defeat the Nazi's when the time came to fight them.

Every single muslim has the same goal, which is to spread islam. Dr Pipes' strategy facilitates that goal.
