Reader comment on item: A Million Moderate Muslims on the March

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), May 8, 2007 at 09:12

With all due respect, I don't see that much difference between those non-Muslims who refuse to see Islamic "radicals" (Islamists) as posing any threat, and those non-Muslims who are placing all hopes on a "moderate" majority of Muslims to defeat the Islamists. Both groups are problematic. Both groups are blind.

The latter group is particularly annoying when they appear (and the arguments adopted) in western countries. This means then that Muslims can continue to be allowed to flood our western nations without worries (no problem, the "moderate" majority will look after that tiny extremist fringe). Ah, what comforting "news." But is this really the message that needs to be conveyed to the public? that everything's "wonderful"?

So what happens when the so-called 'moderates" wish to take a stance against "the Zionist entity" and aligns with so-called "pacifists"? I can just hear the blind ones exclaiming: "Radical Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution!" that will be the rallying cry for the "pacifists" and the "Jews against Israel's Wars".
