Moderate Muslims

What are the so-called “moderate Muslims” thinking and saying about the British government’s uncovering of a plot by British citizens of their same religion to blow up airplanes and murder hundreds or thousands of innocents travelling between London and New York?

I happened upon a blog written by one of the so-called “moderate Muslims;” one of those Muslims about whom we are constantly told do not want to murder you and me. These were his final words at the end of a long, long essay explaining just what it was in British culture that drove those British Muslims to such frustration as to plan aviation mayhem and murder. He wrote:

“pps – Dirty Pakis save the day. It was Pakistan’s intelligence agency which tipped off the Brits.” (from “Muslim Musings on British Muslims“)

Those humanitarians who helped save the lives of hundreds or thousands of innocents merit the appellation of “Dirty Pakis,” in the words of a “moderate” Muslim.

    Don’t you know what sarcasm is?

    I think I do, George, but I also know that sarcasm is not usually combined with racist slurs, such as “Dirty Pakis.” I did not interpret the words as sarcasm. I was but the reader of the words. If the written words were misinterpreted by the reader, that would be the fault of the writer of the words, the author, for not writing more clearly, not the fault of the reader.

    • Who are the Muslims?

    One billion people from a vast range of races, nationalities and cultures across the globe – from the southern Philippines to Nigeria – are united by their common Islamic faith. About 18% live in the Arab world; the world’s largest Muslim community is in Indonesia; substantial parts of Asia and most of Africa are Muslim, while significant minorities are to be found in the Soviet Union, China, North and South America, and Europe.

    • What do Muslims believe?

    Muslims believe in One, Unique, Incomparable God; in the Angels created by Him; in the prophets through whom His revelations were brought to mankind; in the Day of Judgement and individual accountability for actions; in God’s complete authority over human destiny and in life after death. Muslims believe in a chain of prophets starting with Adam and including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Elias, Jonah, John the Baptist, and Jesus, peace be upon them. But God’s final message to man, a reconfirmation of the eternal message and a summing-up of all that has gone before was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad through Gabriel.

    • How does someone become a Muslim?

    Simply by saying ‘there is no god apart from God, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God.’ By this declaration the believer announces his or her faith in all God’s messengers, and the scriptures they brought.

    • What does ‘Islam’ mean?

    The Arabic word ‘Islam’ simply means ‘submission’, and derives from a word meaning ‘peace’. In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of God. ‘Mohammedanism’ is thus a misnomer because it suggests that Muslims worship Muhammad rather than God. ‘Allah’ is the Arabic name for God, which is used by Arab Muslims and Christians alike.

    • Why does Islam often seem strange?

    Islam may seem exotic or even extreme in the modern world. Perhaps this is because religion does not dominate everyday life in the West today, whereas Muslims have religion always uppermost in their minds, and make no division between secular and sacred. They believe that the Divine Law, the Shari’a, should be taken very seriously, which is why issues related to religion are still so important.
