Fighting It– Where are the Outraged Moderate Muslims?

According to one politician, exile, and commentator–there is “no active missionary work” in Islam that is not Jihad, militancy, and hate…  This may not surprise you, but it’s important to hear–

excerpts: A Moderate Muslim Voice Is Missing – Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Former Dutch parliament member Ayaan Hirsi Ali was asked: Have you seen any ideology coming from within Islam that gives young Muslims a sense of purpose without the overlay of militancy?
Ali: “There is no active missionary work among the youth telling them, do not become jihadis….Every time there is a debate between a real jihadi and what we have decided to call moderate Muslims, the jihadis win. Because they come with the Koran and quotes from the Koran. They come with quotes from the Hadith and the Sunnah, and the traditions of the prophet. And every assertion they make, whether it is that women should be veiled, or Jews should be killed, or Americans are our enemies, or any of that, they win. Because what they have to say is so consistent with what is written in the Koran and the Hadith. And what the moderates fail to do is to say, listen, that’s all in there, but that wasn’t meant for this context. And we have moved on. We can change the Koran, we can change the Hadith. That’s what’s missing.” (New York Times)
