True, what he is extreme in is his actions, not his beliefs.
A “moderate” Muslim wants the “extreme” Muslim to get their hands bloody for them.
Sultan Erdogan of the mighty Turkish Empire said that there is no moderate Islam, there is only Islam.
At the minimum that means the only good Muslim is a nonobservant bad Muslim. But doesn’t Islam also teach that jihad martyrdom is the only sure way to absolve one’s sins & enter paradise? So much for `moderate Muslims’.
To me that means every Muslim is a walking bomb and that we who live with these in our midst are playing Muslim Roulette whether we want to or not.
