7 questions to ask a moderate Muslim

Email from AmericanCongressForTruth
These are questions to ask a Muslim who professes to oppose terrorism and radical Islam.

“Apostates”: Do you support killing them? Should leaving the faith of Islam be punishable by death?

“Beating Women”: Is beating women ever acceptable, and if not, do you reject those decrees of Islamic law that sanction the beating of women? Do you also accept stoning women to death for committing adultery?

“Calling Jews pigs and monkeys”: Do you believe that Jews are in any way sub-human and if not, do you reject Quranic interpretations that claim they are?

“Declaring holy war”: Do you support declaring war against non-Muslims to subjugate them to Islam? Do you believe that it is fair and reasonable to offer non-Muslims three options: Conversion, Paying the Jizya, or Death?

“Enslavement”: Do you support the enslavement of female war prisoners and having sex with them as concubines? If not, do you reject those interpretations in Islamic Law, for “Ma-Malkakat Aymanikum”, which justifies such actions?

“Fighting Jews”: Do you support perpetual war against Jews to exterminate them, and if not, should those Muslims who incite such war be punished?

“Gays”: Do you believe it is acceptable to kill gays, and if not, do you reject those edicts in Sharia Law which claim it is?

  1. These seven questions are too basic to accurately determine whether or not the responder is a moderate. Many of the radicals who comprise the majority of American Muslim establishment, i.e., CAIR, MPAC, MAS, ISNA, etc. would answer “no” to every one of these questions. But that wouldn’t make them moderates. The questions must be a lot deeper than that. While even the following questions cannot provide complete accuracy, they will paint a lot clearer picture.

    Does Islam Need to Be Reformed?
    Should Muslim community accept responsibility for terrorism?
    Should Islam have a dominant status?
    Should Sharia be abolished?
    Should people be free to portray Prophet Muhammad?
    Who holds moral high ground in the Arab-Israeli conflict?
    Is Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization?
