Moderate Muslims are not an oxymoron (barf alert)
Chicago Tribune ^ | March 7, 2013 | Steve Chapman

Posted on 03/09/2013 11:50:42 PM PST by Olog-hai

Lars Hedegaard is a Danish journalist who has made his name denouncing Islam, which he describes as “a totalitarian system of thought” whose adherents “rape their own children.” Last month someone showed up at his door with a gun and fired a shot that missed him.

It’s just what you would expect of those crazy Muslims, isn’t it? Except that in the aftermath, Hedegaard found Muslims across Denmark were conspicuously un-crazy. They did not applaud the assailant or excuse his motives. Instead they condemned the attack and upheld Hedegaard’s freedom to preach unhinged bigotry. …

If you hear someone in this country preaching violent resistance to the federal government or law enforcement, it’s more likely to be a Texas secessionist than a fanatical follower of Islam. … The assumption among Islamophobes is that there is something intrinsically alien and incompatible about the presence of Muslims in free countries. In truth, they are not visibly different from other groups that have arrived with the mindset of the past and found themselves transformed into tolerant, loyal and law-abiding souls who value democracy and liberty. …

Uhh, right. So the efforts of the US military have borne no fruit at all. And nothing has happened in the Middle East to make it more radical. And Nidal Hasan committed only workplace violence. The sad thing is that certain people will be taken in by Chapman’s propaganda.

The ignorance here is breathtaking. The usage of "Islamaphobe" as if that is somehow a negative connotation is hillarious. If one is NOT a "Islamaphobe", one is truly a useful Dhimmi.

A ‘moderate’ muslim only practices jihad half the time. The other half of the time is spent lying about it...or sleeping.

-—SIGH-— Another idiot who can’t see the forest from the trees. Chapman, it doesn’t take a majority of any group to cause a war or civil unrest, just a dedicated minority and a quiescent majority, like we have in our muslim population. When was the last time YOU saw muslims demonstrating against terrorism? Me either.

BOTTOM-LINE: Islam is not compatible with civilization. They are stuck in the 900’s.

Moderate and Muslim are mutually exclusive.

An person who appears to be a moderate Muslims is either an atheist or waiting for a better time to kill you.

Virtually every terrorist act committed around the world is committed by an Islamic terrorist. The record of Muslims assimilating in any of the western countries they immigrate to is poor. Sure, there are moderate Muslims who wish no harm to Christians. But they are not in charge. The violent, unassimilable Muslims are in charge. Their goal is to overthrow western civilization with which they get a helping hand from useful idiots like Chapman who can’t see the forest for the trees. Or the Islamic desert for all the sand.

The noise from Muslims in the US condemning violence in the Middle East is deafening. /sarc (just in case it's needed)

A moderate Muslim is one of the majority.

Actually I know several Muslims who came to the US to get away from their fellow Muslims. MINO’s are actually more common than devout Muslims in this little college town. The burkah’s just stand out more.
I worked with a devout Muslim. He was on the burial team at his mosque. He ran a halal meat farm and complained that Muslims just weren’t interested in following diet laws when they were in the US.
We watched the Pakistan cricket team practice one day and when they stopped to pray, only 2 or 3 guys did the prayer. The rest smoked during the time.

There was quite a long story on NPR last week that was trying to sell the same sh*t. After ridiculing as a “hater” the fabulous Brigitte Gabriel and her attempts to raise awareness with her Jihad posters in the NYC subway stations...They launched into the pro Islamic “My Jihad” effort to let all of us idiotic fools know that “Jihad” actually is a very great, positive thing. Of course then they had to drag a little kid into it. A poor little girl, under 10 with a ridiculous “cre8tive” name like Quizonvenisy who said something like: “My Jihad is to be the best speller ever!”. Oh it did warm the cockles of my heart.

The msm is truly on the wrong path on so many things. Beyond belief.

There are two types of muslims; orthodox (who believe in sharia law) and reform (who uphold western values)

Only two types of Muslims, terrorists and terrorists in waiting. What would any “good” Muslim do if ordered by their leader to attack America? A true Muslim following the Koran is by definition a terrorist!

There is NO SUCH THING as a “moderate” mudslym.

That is a fairy tale some lib pulled out his butt and breathed life into.

“Moderate Muslim’’? Moderation. If the bloody religion were so ‘’peaceful’’, why the need for ‘’moderation’’? Wouldn’t that make the argument it isn’t peaceful?

In the past, I would have characterized leftist terrorism as independent from Islamic terrorism, but then I saw a pic of this mural . . .

“Moderate Muslims are not an oxymoron.”

Of course not. They are much more like unicorns and the Easter Bunny.
