Moderate Islam vs Mainstream Islam - a depressing comparison

In today's Star, Dow Marmur jumps on the bash Pamela Geller bandwagon. The quote below says it all about prevailing attitudes among the willfully blind.
“We want to strengthen the moderates, not alienate them. We recognize the anxiety, fear and concern that many fellow Jews feel, but do not want to be overreactive and turn into a negative force that could be injurious to ourselves and others. We must be vigilant, but to be victorious against extremism, we must be able to distinguish between true and imaginary dangers.” In other words you're too cowardly to speak up.
The Muslim community protest against the film "Innocence of Muslims", held last year in Toronto, quickly deteriorated into a Jew Hate Festival, watch the video I made of the event to see for yourself. Did anyone hear a word from the Toronto Board of Rabbi's condemning this event? Did the Rabbi's raise the issue at the next interfaith outreach mutual admiration society meeting? Somehow I doubt it, yet they sure jumped on the bash Pamela Geller bandwagon in a hurry.

I have been saying for a while now that it is not moderate Muslims we need to court. It is liberal Muslims. 'Moderate' is a relative term. And 'Moderate' Islam is still too extreme. The bar needs to be raised.

Liberal may be a more apt description than 'moderate' but it boils down to the same thing, the need for respect of individual liberty that's absent where there is Islamic government.
