If one is looking to find moderate Islam look no further than the nearest liberal... they often report seeing this rare creature in news print and on television. Just ask a University professor of sociology, preferably one wearing fake native jewelry, and he will point the way to a sea of moderate Muslims.
One certainly will not find a moderate in Iran or Saudi Arabia. However, this elusive being is reported to exist in countless network news reports, articles and books, as the liberal media describe the two brands of Islam. One ensconced as the religion of peace and the other brand being the Islamic radical, who is easily Identified by his terrible costume, bloody scimitar, short temper and unshaven profile.
However, as hard as one may try... finding the fabled land of moderate Islam in the East is as elusive as searching for an honest man, just ask Diogenes of Sinope. Perhaps, these moderates can be found in the West but so far none have stepped forward willing to disarm their ill tempered brothers.
Like all good myths moderate Islam is... more the product of a misguided imagination than reality. In some cases, the myth of moderate Islam may well be more the product of complicity and denial than a myth. One certainly will not find a moderate Islam in the Koran or Hadith. However, countless Western journals, books and news articles, report a moderate Islam as the religion of peace... at least while these pundits of the mythology retain their heads on their shoulders.
History certainly can't find a moderate Islam... since its founding in the 6th Century AD Islam has been murdering its neighbors and running about the world recklessly oppressing women and converts who attempt to live as moderates. Perhaps, one of our liberal friends will tell us where this elusive brand of Islam exists.
The moderate Islamist is Obama! And you all know he's a lier from day one!
and the koran allows him to lie in defense of Islam.
Well written, thank you.
I just found out that CAIR has a building full of lobbyists with a key to the white house. while the Moderate MuSLIMes keep their mouths shut out of fear or waiting to jump into the blood letting.
Every Muslim reads from the same Koran, so you either are an active radical or a passive radical. Nothing moderate in the Koran.
The moderate Muslim is quite because his life is in danger... should he speak up too declare moderation he may well find his head on the chopping block as an apostate. The tenants of Islam require the true Muslim too slay those who are not devoted to keeping Sharia and the Koran.
So the radical minority rules the entire Islam. The Muslim moderate "sheep" will watch the persecution of Jews and Christians and say nothing. The Jesuits would call this "The Sin of Omission". The silent Muslim is a danger to the non-Muslims of the world. Sheep of any stripe are a dangerous element within any group, be it TEA Party or Islam.
You are quite right Colonel. Sir thank you for your service and for your familys' service as well.
The only ones who don't want to kill everyone, are the ones who are in the ground.
One would find a Moderate Islamist when they are in their grave.
Well said. Am sick and tired of all of the clap trap about "moderate muslims" ............tell it like it is.
That is like saying, moderate NAZI.
