True Goal of "Moderate Muslims" ?

Reader comment on item: A Million Moderate Muslims on the March
in response to reader comment: WHY?

Submitted by Mike Ramirez (United States), May 8, 2007 at 22:13

In contrast to the fundamental teaching of Islam that calls for victory and world dominance through Jihad, here are two examples of Islamic representatives who claim to be "Moderate" Muslims:

Ibrahim Hooper
AP - 6/11/2004
CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) Spokesperson
"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like
the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in
the future. ...But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education."
Omar Ahmad
Co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

And they sincerely believe they are doing "God's Will."
