Is There a ‘Moderate’ Islam?

“The difference between “reformist” Muslims and “moderates” is not semantic. The latter term is misleading because many “moderate” Muslims exhibit all the traits of orthodoxy, including dogma and a fear of challenging their communities’ groupthink. The qualities associated with religious moderation are positive and desirable as a goal, but they are inadequate as a means to realize positive change in Islam. Although Islam has the potential to be wise and tolerant, it has been deeply corrupted, and rooting out this corruption requires something more potent — even radical — than moderation. It requires reform. As Martin Luther King Jr. said about a racially segregated America, moderation in times of moral crisis is a cop-out.”

    I would say no, but there are “moderate” Muslims who don’t take this crap seriously.

    I don’t buy any of the taqiyya spouted by the likes of this lesbian muslim.

    “it has been deeply corrupted, and rooting out this corruption requires something more potent — even radical — than moderation.”

    Eradication of this death cult is what is called for not this mealy mouthed bull shit spouted by this woman.

    Jihadists chop off heads

    “Moderates” pump out babies, drain welfare resources and wage legal jihad.

    Two sides of the same coin.
