“They swear by Allah that they said nothing (evil), but indeed they uttered blasphemy, and they did it after accepting Islam; and they meditated a plot which they were unable to carry out…”(Quran, 9:74)


A Self Proclaimed *Minority “Moderate” Muslim’s advice to an Apostate:

I realise you come from a Muslim background but are no longer Muslim. What I am trying to point out to you is that the way you approach the issue isnt helpful. Almost every side in this issue, liberal, moderate or extremist is going to reject your continual attack against Islamic theology and history.

As you are no longer a Muslim you are really on the sidelines. You need to ask yourself if you want to help the side in the conflict that wants to reform and change, or do you want to aid the extremists, whether you seek to or not?

Continually looking to slam Islam, Islamic practices and the like do nothing but aid the extremists, especially in the course and often crass manner that you do.

I will not respond to anything you write back to this because I am sick of the back and forth with you that goes nowhere.

I just wanted to make my point that Islam, as a religion, isnt going anywhere. People are not going to reject it, people are not going to completely alter it. If that is what you are seeking or thinking will happen, then it will be a VERY long wait.

If you are really interested in change and reform in the Muslim world you must rethink your approach and your tactics. You might have your heart in the right place, but that means precious little if your words and actions provide cover for the extremists.

His advice to an Atheist:

Any reform, any changes in the Muslim world WILL be religious in nature. So if you completely reject Islam and all religions, then you really cease to be able to have any say or be able to offer anything positive in this discussion.

Once you have decided that Islam is the problem, you become the polar opposite of the “Islam is the answer” people and will make no difference.

I hope you change your views because I really think you have something to offer. Jumping into the anti-Islam camp negates anything positive you could offer to the situation.

His clarification to a “liberal” Muslim:

Interestingly enough, the leaders of this grass roots resistance are not secular, they are not anti Islam, they are liberal clerics.

Any change that happens in the Muslim world is not going to come from the secular West, it is not going to come from those who hate Islam. It is actually going to come from those of us who love Islam and HATE what these people are doing to it.

That is the point I am trying to make to MoQ, Aafke and others who seems think that attacking Islam, it’s Prophet and other tactics or ideas are going to work.

They arent. If the issue is addressed in that fashion there will never be any change in the Muslim world.

The change must come from Muslims and it must come the religious direction.

Am I the only one that read this and thought, “Wow! This certainly explains all the  so-called Muslims, who practice very little of Islam in accordance to The Quran and Sunnah.” I’m not saying that his advice was to actually represent themselves as Muslims, to win over others, but it sure makes one ponder. Everyone knows that you can catch more Bees with honey, than with vinegar.

When you hear Muslims advising known enemies of Islam, to be more diplomatic in their tactics to reform and change Islam – then you should be weary of all involved.

*Minority Moderate Muslim – The only good Muslim is a bad Muslim. Why would anyone self praise themself and have others believe that they are one of the few good ones and that any Muslim unlike him is an extremist? Touche!
