Of course, the Hamas group CAIR considers itself moderate because its operatives haven't strapped one on. They only provide cover for those who strap the bombs on. That's a moderate. This former Hamas-CAIR official justified the London beheading. He said "American soldiers commit worse atrocities against Muslims every day."
Look at Hamas-CAIR partnering with the craven LGF. Remember when I linked them in 2007 and the right turned on me? I was so right. And the big blogs on the right learned the hard way.
Where Are the 'Moderate' Muslims? Pamela Geller, Breitbart, May 29, 2013
Meanwhile, Mujahid Adebolajo was not the first jihadist to be assumed to be harmless, presumably “moderate,” before he turned to murder. The two jihadists behind the plot to bomb a VIA passenger train over Niagara Falls, Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser, were highly educated, with access to the best engineering and science intel. No one was concerned about that, thanks to the presumption of “moderation.” There are many Muslims on Esseghaier’s team at a research institute in Canada. Were any of them aware of Esseghaier’s and Jaser’s radicalism?
How do we know which of our co-workers and neighbors aren’t bloody jihadists in the making? How do we identify the “moderates”? Remember: Anwar Awlaki, the imam to the 9/11 Muslim terrorists (who assisted in the purchase of their airplane tickets), was the go-to imam the media consulted (the “moderate” imam) for all things Islam right after 9/11. And so did the 9/11 hijackers, for “spiritual guidance.”
Awlaki dined at the Pentagon for lunch. He supped there as well. Yet the devout Muslim Awlaki also provided succor and Islamic spiritual guidance to the 9/11 jihadis, the Fort Hood jihadist and the Christmas underwear bomber. Today’s “moderate” does nothing effective to fight against jihad terror, and no authorities seem to care – and every now and then, without warning, yesterday’s “moderate” becomes today’s mass murderer. What’s the difference? Good PR and a lot of propaganda served as hot as apple pie by a jihad-aligned media. What they don’t tell you is the fact that the most recent survey, conducted over a five-year period, showed over 80 percent of the mosques in America teach, advance and promote jihad.
This is an ideological war devoid of borders, countries, and nationality. And the sooner the kaffirs and infidels and “people of the book” accept that harsh reality, the sooner we will begin to stem the Islamic supremacist tide. The global jihad transcends borders, nationalities, race, creed (pre-conversion) or color. It is the ideology of supremacism, violence and hate that compels the relentless war on non-Muslims and secular Muslims (apostates). Until we face reality (and truth is the recognition of reality), we are all in great peril.
Even some of those reputed to be “moderates” admit this. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey, a country that up until recently had been considered the embodiment of “moderate” Islam, declared in 2009: “The ‘moderate Islam’ concept is wrong. The word ‘Islam’ is a simple word – it is only Islam. If you say ‘moderate Islam,’ then an alternative is created, and that is ‘immoderate Islam.’ I cannot accept such a concept as a Muslim.”
Obama repeatedly again last week that the U.S. is not at war with Islam. Indeed. But Islam is at war with the West. Not all Muslims, but a critical mass. Not all Germans were Nazis, and not all members of the Nazi Party were eager for war or Holocaust. But the ideology was bankrupt. The “moderate” Muslims of today are about as effective in stemming the tide of savagery as the anti-Nazi “good Germans” were.
As Erdoğan said, there is no moderate Islam. There is no extreme Islam. Islam is Islam. The silence and inaction of the “moderates” after the jihad killings in Boston and London proves that yet again. The only folks who can save Islam are other Muslims, not Western politicians pretending to distinguish between Muslims they have never met.
