A Million Moderate Muslims on the March

[New York Sun] Daniel Pipes - Moderate Muslims are no myth. In Pakistan, an estimated 100,000 people demonstrated in Karachi on April 15 to protest plans to establish a parallel court system based on Islamic religious law. In Turkey, more than 1 million moderate Muslims gathered for four marches to protest the bid of the ruling Justice and Development Party, the AKP, to take over the Turkish presidency. The marches chanted slogans such as: "We don't want an imam as president." Developments in Pakistan and Turkey confirm that radical Islam is the problem and moderate Islam is the solution. Ignorant non-Muslim busybodies should get out of the way of those moderate Muslims who are determined to relegate radical Islamism to its rightful place in the dustbin of history.
