Winds of War: What is a Moderate Muslim?

AINA ran published the text of a Frontpage Symposium they held on the subject of Anti-Fascists of Islam. They pulled together an impressive list of panel participants including Wafa Sultan, a Syrian-American psychologist and internationally known critic of militant Islam, Khalim Massoud, the president of Muslims Against Sharia, an Islamic reform movement, Robert Spencer, a scholar of Islamic history, theology, and law and the director of Jihad Watch, and Abul Kasem, an ex-Muslim who is the author of hundreds of articles and several books on Islam including, Women in Islam.

The article is a must read but I want to highlight one response from Mr. Massoud where he makes an excellent comparison between a radical Muslim and a moderate one. Our leadership should take note.

First, we define what 'radical Muslim' is. Radical Muslim is the one who believes in Islamic supremacy. Hence the urge to wage Jihad for world domination that usually involves killing or subjugating infidels. After we define the enemy, the 'radical', we define 'moderate' as the opposite to 'radical'.

While this table could certainly be improved, it provides a good framework for a litmus test to identify true 'anti-fascists of Islam' (moderates).

  • Sadly, the definition you listed of the "moderate muslim" is impossible -- as that person would no longer be a muslim. Maybe you should post the definition of a unicorn ...you'd have an easier time finding one of those than a moderate muslim.
