Why PI doesn't reach out to 'Moderate Muslims'

In a recent email, I was asked why we at PI did not actively attempt to 'reach out' to moderate Muslims who may be somewhat less bloody-minded than their jihadist brethren. Here is my answer to that question:

...Being aware of Mohammed's record and behavior (through my studies of the Koran, Hadith and Sira), I am convinced that no decent philosophy or religious movement can be based on the words and deeds of such a duplicitious, violent, intolerant man. I think it's very apt to say that building a kind-hearted ideology on the teachings of Mohammed is exactly like trying to base a respectable political party upon Hitler's crackpot racial theories. It simply can't be done.

You mentioned your interest in reaching out to 'moderate' Muslims. Let me tell you my thoughts on that subject.

A 'moderate' Muslim more often than not, willingly or otherwise, serves as a front, trojan horse, apologist, fund raiser and potential recruit for his more aggressive jihadist-minded co-religionists. Mohammed Atta, the field commander of the infamous 9-11 Jihadist 'raid' on America, is one name of a former 'moderate Muslim' (he was a middle-class western-educated engineering student if you recall) that you may recognize. There are countless others, less well known, but every bit as disingenuous and dangerous as he was.

In Mao's words, these so-called moderates function as the 'sea' for the violent Jihadists to swim in. Moderate Muslims may not be indulging in violent jihad (for the moment), but they can and do participate actively in other fronts in Islam's Global Jihad, i.e. demographic, information, financial, and so on.

Therefore I have no interest in reaching out to 'moderate' Muslims, except for trying to convince them to leave the aggressive totalitarian movement called Islam.

This week we dhimmified Britons are required to celebrate a taqiyya-fest known as Islam Awareness Week . This is my contribution:

The essential and fundamental feature of Islam is a seething, vicious and implacable hatred of all non-believers (kuffars), which no amount of compromise can ever appease. Until both Joe Public and his elected representatives understand this we are defenseless, because we do not know our enemy.

Here's an excerpt from a chilling article from an ex-Muslim on why Muslims hate us and always will hate us no matter what we do.

"The Qur’an teaches Muslims not to be friendly with the non-Muslims or to trust them (1). It also advocates that the non-Muslims are the associates of Satan (2) and warns of severe punishment to those Muslims who try to be in affable terms with the non-Muslims(3). A Muslim convert must not be in congenial terms even with his non-Muslim parents (4) and he is free to murder his parents and kindred (5) if they criticise the convert’s new faith. The Qur’an says that the non-Muslims are open enemies of Islam (6). Muslims are commanded to be harsh and ruthless with them (7), to terrorise them (8), to humiliate them (9), to make war on them(10) and to murder them wherever they are found (11).

A true Muslim must follow the Qur’an in complete. Therefore, it is obligatory for him/her to dislike and distrust the non-Muslims.

Even when the unbelievers harbour no enmity or dislike towards the Muslims, they (the Muslims) must not take the unbelievers as friends and allies. The infidels’ unbelief (that is, their refusal to convert to Islam) is the main reason why Muslims must hate them.

Refusal to convert to Islam in itself is considered as an act of hostility and oppression. That is why non-Muslims are open enemies of Islam—nothing, not even their good intentions, could render them friendly towards the Muslims!"

The numbers refer to Koranic references in the original article. Read it all!

To walk down British streets is to see those referred to, ignore and look away as one smiles a greeting.
One could as a white Briton, believe one is in a different country to the one we were born in.
The thoughts of the 'newcomers' are implacable towards us, they merely await the fulfillment of their beliefs, indoctrinated from birth to believe that the Kufar unbeliever is unworthy of their humanity.
We have a clear choice.

Do you ever have to qualify the followings as "moderates" today :


for example.

Why? why? why?
If islam is so naturally peaceful, i.e.!

Doesn't it clearly mean that islam sees itself as having the right to war in order to dominate the earth. And the so called moderates are just background supporters of the same effort.

Most of the Western Muslim establishment is comprised of Islamist groups claiming to be moderates. True moderate Muslims reject Islamic supremacy and Sharia; embrace religious equality and democracy.

What is a moderate Muslim? According to a dictionary, a moderate is a person who is opposed to radical or extreme views or measures, especially in politics or religion. Yet, majority of the public seem to be struggling with the definition of a moderate Muslim. Perhaps we can make this task easier by defining a radical Muslim and then defining the moderate as an opposite of the radical.

Muslims Against Sharia compiled a list of issues that differentiate moderate Muslims from Islamic radicals. Hopefully you can help us grow this list.
