I believe one member of FR describes moderate Islam as something like, “The Trojan Horse In Which Terrorist Muslims Enter”.
The moderate Muslim would sharpen the blade the cut your head off, so that at least it’s quick and painless.
An extremist (i.e., orthodox) Muslim says, "I will kill you!!! Die, Kaffir!!! Allahu Akbar!!!"
A moderate Muslim says, "I wont kill you but I hope my extremist brother does!!! Die, Kaffir!!! Allahu Akbar!!!"
They’re both extreme. One spouts off and runs around with guns blazing. The other just plants bombs and walks away quietly.
One is activly trying to kill you.
The other one hasen’t started—YET!
Check for a pulse. Moderate Muzzies are inevitably killed by Extremist Muzzies.
This could have been a serious post, if not for your lame suggestion.
To make a distinction, first you must be willing to LOOK at Muslims.
31 of 32 on the terror watch list are Muslim!
Yet, we’re still told the Fr. Hood killings were “workplace violence”.
The *Moderate muslim* quietly drops the duffel-bag into the crowd, and triggers the explosion by cellphone, from ½-mile away.
They exchanged pleasantries and as they walked the Iranian said, "You know I have just one question about what I have seen in America."
Ambassador Bolton said, "Well anything I can do to help you, I will."
The Iranian whispered, "My son watches this show 'Star Trek' and in it there is Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, and Sulu who is Chinese, but no Iranians. My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Arabs or Muslims on Star Trek."
Bolton laughed, leaned toward the Iranian ambassador and whispered back, "It's because it takes place in the future."
Extremists shake with their left hand.
(One suggestion may include requiring all Muslims who want to enter America, to eat a pork chop or bacon sandwich. A moderate Muslim who has no strict religious beliefs, would not mind taking a bite out of a pork chop or bacon/ham sandwich.)
That’s a really bad idea. Telling them to do something forbidden by their religion is totally out of line. It would be as bad as preventing a Christian from bringing his Bible when landing in Saudi Arabia. I would ask them whether they condemn Osama bin Laden, 9/11, Islamic terrorism, suicide-bombing, what would be their actions if their daughter dated a non-Muslim, or family member converted to a different religion.
Does a duck weigh as much as wood?
Moderate Muslims are the Trojan Horse for Islam. There is no such thing as a “moderate muslim”. There mere fact that such a phrase exists says there isn’t such a thing and that Islam is a nuthouse for of child-molesting murderers, just like their founder Mad Mo/
There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. If they subscribe to the Koran’s teachings, they are extremists.
‘Moderate” Muslims are dead.
All rattlesnakes bite.
There are no “moderates” from my experience, but then I’m rather limited with two exposures to Muslims. First was one from Tunisia (he never knew Star Wars shot in his country), and I was really liking the guy and we had some really good conversations until it came to religion. He was very adamant that all infidels should convert to Islam... or else. Never spelled out what “or else” was, but I got the hint.
The second one (from Pakistan) was nice to your face, but never very conversational, but one time he blew up for no reason, just went nuts and delivered a tirade on “stupid Americans” and how they were going to take away all of America’s money and screw our “bitches.” That one really surprised me, especially how sedate he generally acted.
I think if you just prick the surface, you find the true Muslim.
