We hear that moderate Muslims are the solution to radical Islam. But when we examine this idea a step at a time, it will not work.
Radical Muslims want Sharia, moderate Muslims reject Sharia
Radical Muslims want jihad, moderate Muslims reject jihad
And so on…
But the problem is that all of the things that radicals want are pure Islam. And every radical idea that moderate Muslims reject is pure Islam. Moderation simply means rejecting the doctrine. Moderation is a form of apostasy. How can moderates reform what they reject? Moderate Muslims are not Islamic and are not capable of reforming Islam.
There is no moderate Islam; there is no radical Islam. There is only Islam.
