But then again, now that you brought it up, as a moderate, you fail to see what everyone else sees in the world, that the moderate Muslims, do not
take a stand, even in their own communities, to state what is and is not acceptable. Every time an extremist, takes a violent action, the only words
that the moderates will use are soft and non offensive, to where it appears that they hang to the rear of the issue and afraid to take a stand. Most
people only know Sharia, based off of what is shown to the world, and normally that is things where women are oppressed. Even more Islamic countries,
where Sharia is the rule of law, tend to show some pretty steep punishments for violations of the law, both social and the law of the land. Most
Islamic countries have shown intolerance towards those that violate what they would perceive against their faith.
The Islamic world did this to themselves, and it will ultimately be their undoing. The moderates need to take a more firmer stance against the
extremist, where there is no doubt about their stance, anything less, will only give those against Muslims more proof that they are nothing more than
a group that spawns terrorist.
