Just where are the moderate muslims????

Here's a situation that is crying out for the moderates to take charge....

Hardline Islamic cleric Mohammed Swaiti has forced his way back into Canberra's only mosque to preach anti-western messages after he was sacked for praising jihadists.

The cleric used his predominantly Palestinian and Jordanian support base to topple the leaders in charge of Abu Bakr Mosque in Yarralumla, News Limited newspapers report.

This has allowed Sheik Swaiti to continue preaching Wahabbism - a fundamentalist strand of Islam espoused by Osama bin Laden.

Islamic Society of ACT president Sabrija Poskovic, whose organisation is in charge of the mosque, said he was forced out after receiving threats from Swaiti's followers.

"They took over the mosque by force, by argument, by screaming, by calling us names," Mr Pokovic said. "There is no point arguing with him and his supporters anymore."

Good question but I fear the answer is there are none. Just extremists and all the others who quietly wait on the sidelines for the extremists to finish their job.

Moderate Muslims are waiting for the extremists to finish up their bloodletting so they can run along side them through the streets yelling Allah Ak..blah..blah..blah.

Not on television...
Don't you think its funny when you purchase an hummer your supporting the military complex and terrorism at once. It's like you're fueling both sides of the fire. It's almost like the united states wants to create phantom boggy men to legitimize their bullshit!
Hmm is that why you're not hearing moderate muslims?
