← Muslim peace conference condemns terrorism

When moderate believers condamn extremist believers, that's great. No doubt about it. But if they admited that moderate religion is the cause of extremist religion, that would be much better.

What is a moderate believer anyway ? Someone who believes gods exist only every second day ? That they are just half great ? That the Koran/Bible is half true, half false ? A moderate religion is a religion that has not the political power to be extremist.

All the better if they condamn terrorism today, but let's wait until they condamn religion altogether to rejoyce.
