← Tory chief Baroness Warsi attacks 'bigotry' against Muslims

Has there ever been a "moderate" Muslim cleric who has ever come out and said that parts of the Koran are wrong and morally indefensible? If not, they should not be judged as moderate in the same way that moderate Christians are defined as moderate.

Or they'll say, "that's just the wrong interpretation of the Koran!" Reading some of the choice quotes, the Koran seems pretty unequivocal. And who has a monopoly on the correct interpretation? Given the horrible things laid out plainly in the Koran, is it any surprise that so many Muslims are so extreme?

I would like to see Baroness Warsi address those issues. It sounds like she's jumping on the "anyone who criticises Islam is Islamophobic" bandwagon.
