What Have the so called “Moderate Muslims” Learned from the Arab Spring?

-->



I hope those who refer to themselves as moderate Muslims have learned the following lesson after the Arab Spring:

You can't IGNORE your problems... You can't IGNORE your fanatics; you can't be in DENIAL that they exist. If you are doing NOTHING against fanaticism you are NOT being NEUTRAL, you are actually in compliance.

If you don’t accept some form of Islamic reform, and accept responsibility, fanaticism will take over. Not only do you have to accept reform, you have to DEMAND IT.

The first step for fixing a problem is admitting that it exists, not brushing it under the rug, or blaming all the ridiculous actions on  “the other sects” of the same religion that you claim to follow. If you chose to remain silent, you will be shunned and ridiculed by the rest of the civilized world... Make no mistake about it.

"Moderates"

One of the dangers of extremism is that people can now refer to themselves as "moderates" just because they don't commit human right crimes! It lowers the bar, and lowers the expectations of what it means to be a truly humane, open minded, and loving person.

Great Article from an Indian rape victim

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/08/opinion/after-being-raped-i-was-wounded-my-honor-wasnt.html?hp&_r=2&


This part is what the Arab world should comprehend:

"Rape is horrible. But it is not horrible for all the reasons that have been drilled into the heads of Indian women. It is horrible because you are violated, you are scared, someone else takes control of your body and hurts you in the most intimate way. It is not horrible because you lose your “virtue.” It is not horrible because your father and your brother are dishonored. I reject the notion that my virtue is located in my vagina, just as I reject the notion that men’s brains are in their genitals."
