There is a lot of discussion in the West, about moderate Islam and Moderate Muslims. While one condemns violence and bigotry, one should understand that the primary focus of 1.3 billion Muslims on the planet is to feed their families and taking care of the young ones.
Some want Muslims to behave like Jews or Christians, in thought, ideas, and even beliefs.
A moderate Muslims does not mean someone who is a “non-Muslim”. A moderate Muslim does not mean someone who is “Christian in thoughts and beliefs.” A moderate Muslim is not a WOG (Western Orientalized gentleman), one who looks like a native but thinks like a colonialist or a Neocon. A moderate Muslim is someone who respects Chrsitians, Christianity and other religions.
A moderate Christian is one who does NOT listen to the bigots on “Foxy” and elsewhere. A moderate Christian is not one who secretly or openly expects Muslims to become Christians. A moderate Christians is one who respects Islam and other religions.
My mother used to tell me “darmiyanah ravish”, the middle way. This is what a moderate Muslim is all about. Judiasm is a strict religion, Christianity is easy; Islam offers the middle way.
Finding moderate Muslims is easy, stop listening to the bigots of the world and find one in the nearest mosque or in your neighborhood.Seek out a Muslim and befriend him/her. It will be a rewarding experience. Friendship and hospitality will energize and improve everyone.
