Comment 7 by ZenDruid The moderate and peaceful Muslims have been terrorized into submission by the jihadis.

Religion is the instigator of intolerance for moderates and extremists alike. The prism they have to view everything through is clouded by the religious dogma that chains them and their subsequent ideas and actions are affected in the end. I agree that there are voices from Muslims against extremism but it is so easy for them to get side tracked because it is like a dog chasing its tail in that they have to square it with religion and that is where the wheel falls of the wagon so to speak. I would agree with you ZenDruid that there are moderates but I would like to see them become luke warm religionist and ultimately rejectors of religion so they might breath the free air.
