A moderate Muslim is someone who just ran out of ammunition.

I enjoy offering the following proposition to anyone who talks confidently of the existence of “moderate” Muslims.

Let’s go together into any predominately Muslim neighborhood — be it in Dearborn, Paris, London, or the Gaza Strip — and as we walk down the street together, please point out to me both the “moderates” and the “Islamists.”

Bottom line: I believe it is a distinction without a difference — a distinction that may be as ephemeral as a passing mood.

I think John Bolton has the numbers about right:

1 to 2 percent of Muslims are moderate
20 to 30 percent are violent Islamists
The rest are too intimidated or ignorant to care.

The moderates are too small in number to ever be heard.

“Moderate’’. “Moderation’’. If Islam were peaceful why the need for ‘’moderation’’? Wouldn’t that make the argument it isn’t peaceful? There was no such thing as a ‘’moderate Nazi’’. There is no such thing as a ‘’moderate Muslim’’.

Because there are only two kinds of muslims: active terrorists, and sleepers.

Sharia and Jihad are the core of Islam.

They hate the West. They are in western countries in order to spread Islam and convert or conquer these countries.

I wish they would stay in their Middle Eastern blankety blank countries if they love Islamic rule and Sharia law so much. Instead, a concerted effort is underway to spread to other parts of the world.

The protests in Turkey have nothing to do with Shariah or jihad. They have to do with environmental issues and the killing of trees for new development.

This is a nonsense question?

Every “moderate” muslim funds the friggin’ Islamic political system in some way, shape or form. Just propagating is supporting them. It is NOT a religion.

The author of this piece speaks the clear unvarnished truth about the nonexistence of moderate islam. Until a significant percentage of the followers of the “religion of peace” are willing to risk deadly disapproval from their fellow mo-bomb-headians in order to protect the rights and lives of those not within their cult, then moderate islam is just a myth. So far, I have seen absolutely no evidence that it exists.

Islam should be treated like the cult of evil that it has consistently proven itself to be. No follower of the murderous pedophile mo-bomb-head should ever be allowed to even visit our country let alone come here to live. All non-citizen mo-bomb-headians already here should be immediately deported.

As for those who are already citizens, they should be treated as members of a known anti-American criminal cult and be required to formally swear their allegiance to America over islam and publicly denounce the murderous ways of mainstream islam. All mosques should be monitored 24/7 as potential terror cells.

Only if and when a truly moderate reformed version of islam arises and proves itself through the sustained actions of large numbers of adherents who are willing to give their all in actively defending American and her Constitutional principles against the evils of their unreformed brethren should they gain the acceptance and treatment accorded a normal peaceful religion. And there is absolutely no indication that this will be happening any time soon.

When will islam be defined as a criminal enterprise?

The question needs to be asked over and over.
