Muslims Against Sharia - Fighting an Uphill Battle

Since it is so often commented that there seems to be little evidence of "Moderate" muslims speaking out or even existing in terms that western citizens would recognize I welcome this opportunity to bring forth a group that is muslim and supports the idea of temperate and rational reformation of Islam to co-exist with western democratic ideals.

If I am right in what I take away from their sites and their posititions then they deserve to be heard. But apparently neither MSM nor Governments choose to hear their voices ....... so again this becomes and issue that Bloggers may take to the world when the establishment will not.

Hear them out and be your own judge ..... !

Taken from the comments on "Ezra Levant - I do not answer to the state"


And, In response to my challenges of certain points made by M.A.S :

“When and if your so called Moderate friends undertake and sustain vigorous public rejection of groups like CAIR and CIC”

We do it all the time and nobody hears. Governments and media are not interested in what moderate Muslims have to say, they only deal with Islamists.

“Moderate muslims will be radicalised?
Anyone who can so easily be moved to radicalism is NOT a moderate.”

Maybe I misspoke. I should have said they will be pushed towards radicalization.

I say thank you for that!


If it is the case that organized groups of moderate muslims are being ignored in the media and ignored by politicians then we have a point where we can help.

Blogger Muslims Against Sharia said...Thank you for your support. We can use as much help as we can get in getting our message out. We'd like for every moderate Muslim to know that he/she is not alone. We'd like for every Westerner to know that moderate Muslims exist and they are the best antidote to the venom of radical Islam. We have a site, http://www.reformislam.org/, a blog http://muslimsagainstsharia.blogspot.com/, and want to publish our version of the Koran http://www.reformislam.org/koran.php. Anything you can do to promote those will help.

Thank you very much for your support. If every Westerner were like you, radical Islam would be an obscure concept.

It's a worthwhile goal ... My part in this effort may be small but I will do what I can to inform people about your cause.

Good luck.

Excellent work Ommag. I followed a comment on CS and discovered the Moderate Muslim site.

Saw your comment and then your post here. All discovery on my part.

No thanks to the *Selectively Silent MSM*.

Impressive too, with versions in languages including Russian. = TG
