The Myth of “Moderate” Islam

The brilliant and funny Steven Crowder has a question for you – and it’s one we’ve often asked here at Eagle Rising… where are these so-called “moderate Muslims?

The first thing President Obama had to say about the evil terrorists at ISIS in his recent speech? “ISIS isn’t Islamic!” Sure, the first letter in their name – ISIS – actually stands for the word “Islamic,” but perhaps he’s right and they don’t represent all of Islam?

The problem with that is that we see the values that ISIS propagates played out in Islamic countries all over the world.

Here’s Steven Crowder with a reality check for our distinguished President.

 

 

The only “moderate” Muslims in the world are mostly found in western nations… and even here they are outnumbered by extremists. There are hundreds of western Muslims – Muslims from nations like the UK, France, Germany and even the USA – fighting right now for ISIS in Syria and Iraq!

It’s time we came to grips with the fact that all of our enemies in the War on Terror… happen to be Muslim.

By the way – just more evidence that there is no such thing as “moderate” Islam. Several news agencies are now reporting that ISIS has reached a truce with several “moderate” rebel groups in Syria. I wonder if people will still think they’re “moderate” when they stand idly by as ISIS murders more people in Syria? “Moderate” is code for “not as crazy as ISIS/al Qaeda.”

There is no such thing as “moderate” Islam.
