To be MODERATE is to stray from Islam.
In the WEST a MODERATE Muslim is a GOOD Muslim, because that mean they are LESS likely to commit violent acts of JIHAD. This is understood, but is it?
To be honest, is to say that ISLAM is a religion that is based in Conquest, through ANY means, which goes against all LAWS of the west, and it’s a religion that all aspects of life are in SUBMISSION to the RELIGION. This is what was once known as a Theocracy. But they don’t teach that in schools anymore. It might offend the Muslims.
To be more Christian or Jewish or religious, is to be more moral, and yet thats the opposite of what we are telling people of the Muslims. We say that the better, more moral Muslim is the one who is LESS in to ISLAM. This is paradoxical and is a lie. It’s political correctness that keeps on lying. It’s being too polite for ones own good. You don’t see very many Muslims saying that they are much nicer because they are less Muslim. That’s insulting. Yet THIS is exactly what WE are saying.
Let’s stop the forked tongue talk. They are reprehensible, inhumane, murderers, pedophiles, sodomites, adulterers, who condone the practice of Bestiality and torture. Their HOLY BOOKS provide guidlines for these.
Here are some examples of Muslims acting MUSLIM
Pakistan Muslim scholars praise killer of governor:
LAHORE, PAKISTAN—Lawyers showered the suspected killer of a prominent Pakistani governor with rose petals when he arrived at court Wednesday and an influential Muslim scholars group praised the assassination of the outspoken opponent of laws that order death for those who insult Islam.
Mumtaz Qadri, 26, made his first appearance in an Islamabad court, where a judge remanded him in custody a day after he allegedly sprayed automatic gunfire at the back of Punjab province Gov. Salman Taseer while he was supposed to be protecting him as a bodyguard. A rowdy crowd slapped him on the back and kissed his cheek as he was escorted inside. The lawyers who tossed handfuls of rose petals over him were not involved in the case.
As he left the court, a crowd of about 200 sympathizers chanted “death is acceptable for Muhammad’s slave.” The suspect stood at the back door of an armoured police van with a flower necklace given to him by an admirer and repeatedly yelled “God is great.”
More than 500 clerics and scholars from the group Jamat Ahle Sunnat said no one should pray or express regret for the killing of the governor. The group representing Pakistan’s majority Barelvi sect, which follows a brand of Islam considered moderate, also issued a veiled threat to other opponents of the blasphemy laws.
“The supporter is as equally guilty as one who committed blasphemy,” the group warned in a statement, adding politicians, the media and others should learn “a lesson from the exemplary death.”
Jamat leader Maulana Shah Turabul Haq Qadri paid “glorious tribute to the murderer … for his courage, bravery and religious honour and integrity.”
Mumtaz Qadri told interrogators Tuesday that he shot the liberal Taseer multiple times because of the politician’s vocal opposition to the harsh blasphemy laws.
Qadri is a name commonly adopted by devout men of the Barelvi sect.
Mumtaz Qadri is accused of pumping more than 20 rounds from his assault rifle into Taseer’s back in an Islamabad street on Tuesday. The commando, who had been assigned to protect his victim, has yet to be charged with a crime.
A senior police official who interrogated Qadri said he was determined to stand by his confession that he was proud to kill a blasphemer. The official said Qadri had looked for a chance to kill the governor since joining his security squad on Tuesday morning, but did not get the opportunity at the presidential or senate buildings.
His chance came when the squad was called to escort Taseer from a restaurant on Tuesday afternoon, the official said.
After the attack, Qadri threw his weapon down and put up his hands up when one of his colleagues aimed at him, pleading to be arrested alive, the official said.
In the northwest city of Peshawar, more than 40 students rallied for Qadri’s release. “All of us students are proud of him, of what Mumtaz did,” protester Faisal Khan said.
Taseer, 66, was a senior member of the ruling party and close ally of U.S.-backed President Asif Ali Zardari. He is the highest-profile political figure to be assassinated since former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was slain three years ago.
An outspoken moderate in a country increasingly beset by zealotry, his death was a reminder of the growing danger to those in Pakistan who dare to challenge Islamist extremists.
Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and other senior ruling party officials joined up to 6,000 mourners who gathered under tight security to pay silent homage to him at the funeral at his official residence in the eastern city of Lahore.
His assassination added to the turmoil in nuclear-armed Pakistan, where the government is on the verge of collapse and Islamic militancy is on the rise.
Khusro Pervez, the commissioner of Lahore, said city authorities had deployed additional police to keep the peace before and after the funeral. Thousands of police guarded the governor’s residence and other key sites.
The governor’s residence has been the scene of angry street protests in recent weeks against Taseer’s call to repeal blasphemy laws that order death for anyone convicted of insulting Islam and his support for a Christian woman sentenced to die for allegedly insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.
Political allies questioned why Taseer hadn’t been better protected.
In a nod to his campaign for legislative reform, the leading Islamabad newspaper Dawn reported in a front page headline: “Blasphemy law claims another life.”
Although courts typically overturn convictions and no executions have been carried out, rights activists say the laws are used to settle rivalries and persecute religious minorities.
Taseer’s admirers called the governor a courageous opponent of Pakistan’s shift in recent years away from South Asia’s Sufi-influenced moderation to the more fundamentalist approaches to Islam found in some areas of the Middle East.
His death also came as a blow to the ruling party, which is struggling to retain power after the defection of a key ally from its governing coalition that left it without a majority in parliament.

In the aftermath of the attack by Muslim terrorists on a church in Alexandria, Egypt, new revelations are casting further doubt on claims by the Mubarak government that “all Egypt is the target” of the bombings, and not just members of the Coptic Christian community.
As reported previously for The New American, a bomb was detonated outside al-Qiddissin Church just as the New Year’s midnight Mass was coming to its conclusion. Initial press reports indicated that over 20 people died in the explosion and nearly 80 were injured. After the explosion, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak appealed for calm; according to a BBC New report, he declared, “This act of terrorism shook the country’s conscience, shocked our feelings and hurt the hearts of Muslim and Coptic Egyptians. … The blood of their martyrs in Alexandria mixed to tell us that all Egypt is the target and that blind terrorism does not differentiate between a Copt and a Muslim.”
However, information has come to light in the aftermath of the bombing which calls into question whether foreign terrorists were responsible for the explosion.
Egypt’s massacre of Christians – Obama’s willful ignorance of the event – POPE’s suicidal TOLERANCE is EVIL
I strongly condemn the separate and outrageous terrorist bombing attacks in Egypt and Nigeria. The attack on a church in Alexandria, Egypt caused 21 reported deaths and dozens of injured from both the Christian and Muslim communities.
Assyrian International New Agency (AINA) has released a story implicating Egyptian government security guards in the blast. Furthermore, Mubarak’s claims of a shaken national conscience aside, it appears that Muslim mobs greeted the explosion with shouts of triumph. In the words of the AINA story:
According to eyewitnesses, a green Skoda car pulled up outside the church shortly after midnight. Two men got out, one of them talked shortly on his mobile phone, and the explosion occurred almost immediately after they left the scene. On the back of the Skoda was a sticker with the words “the rest is coming” (video of car explosion and Muslims shouting “Allah Akbar”). …
“Security should know that those who demonstrated are the hand of Al-Qaida in Egypt,” said Hany el-Gezeiry, head of Copts4Egypt. “They should have arrested them to investigate who was behind them. They want to destroy Egypt from inside and the government kept quiet, giving them a free hand to do what they wanted. I believe Al-Qaida achieved what it wanted.”
El-Gezeiry asks why this Skoda vehicle was allowed to park in front of the church in an area cordoned off by security, when it was known that Al-Qaeda had already announced its intention of carrying out criminal acts against churches.
Eyewitnesses confirmed that security forces guarding the church withdrew nearly one hour before the blast, leaving only four policemen and an officer to guard such a big church and nearly 2000 people attending the midnight mass. “Normally they would have waited until the mass was over,” said el-Gezeiry. He also commented on the Muslim’s schadenfreude at the massacre at the church, who were heard chanting “Allah Akbar.”
“Is this a victory?” he asks. “Whoever saw this fire and people dying and body parts all over the place and could still chant ‘Allah Akbar’ is a terrorist.”
Such accusations of possible complicity between security forces and those who carried out the bombing might seem farfetched to some, but the testimony of eyewitnesses certainly demands an investigation and explanation for the alleged withdrawal of security immediately prior to the attack.
Regardless of whether government security forces were in some fashion complicit in the bombing, it appears certain that the church was among those which had been specifically targeted by al-Qaeda. As noted in an Associated Press article entitled, “Anti-Christian drumbeat loud before Egypt attack,” it was no secret that al-Qaeda had been encouraging an increase in attacks against Coptic churches:
In the weeks before the New Year’s Day suicide bombing of an Egyptian church, al-Qaida-linked websites carried a how-to manual on “destroying the cross,” complete with videos on how to build a bomb and the locations of churches to target — including the one that was attacked.
They may have found a receptive audience in Alexandria, where increasingly radicalized Islamic hard-liners have been holding weekly anti-Christian demonstrations, filled with venomous slogans against the minority community….
Only two or three days before Saturday’s bombing, police arrested several Salafis [a hardline Muslim sect] spreading fliers in Alexandria calling for violence against Christians, a security official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.
According to authorities, the strong belief among investigators is that local extremists who knew the area and the nature of their target were behind the blast. The Egyptian weekly Al-Youm Al-Saba said police were examining photos of the Salafis’ weekly protests for suspects.
In the weeks before the attack, al-Qaida militants on the Web spewing calls for “jihad,” or holy war, on Egypt’s Christians laid out everything anyone would need to carry out a bombing.
The new information coming to light in the aftermath of this horrific attack highlights the plight of Egypt’s Christian minority. With eyewitness reports which fundamentally challenge the government’s pronouncements, it seems highly unlikely that a public accounting will ever be made for all the details of this murderous deed. In fact, the government’s preliminary claim that a single suicide bomber may have been behind the explosion makes it all the more likely that the matter may simply be considered “concluded”—until the next attack.
Regardless of whether or not al-Qaeda was directly responsible for this horrific crime or the terrorist organization inspired Egyptian Muslims to murder Egyptian Christians, several central facts remain unchanged: There were Muslims who were more than willing to blow up a church, and there were Muslims prepared to greet such mass murder with cries of joy.
