#1 "moderate islamist"?? The Baghdad Post considers the peripatetic 30 year leader of a Muslim Brotherhood chapter a moderate Islamist.

#2 Moderate Islamists allow infidels to live under the caliphate's "protection" as long as they pay the jizya tax. Better than being murdered outright you could say.

#3 2 points (freely given and worth ALMOST that much)
1. They probably got elected because they are less corrupt, than the other parties. Corruption is a huge problem and not just in the "Islamic world", particularly when combined with incompetence...which is often the case.
2. Moderate Islamist. I know some Muslims, and we've talked about this. "You guys have a problem, it can be summed up in the word Islamist. Either You deal with it...or we will. But one way or the other It Will be dealt with."

PS. Not sure if people really understand that for every Non-Muslim the Islamists kill, they kill 10 of the co-coreligionists.

Well that's one good thing they've got going for them. You know Muhammad was no slouch when it came to chopping off the heads of his wayward flock.

Which is a good thing really. If only the civilized world could find it's balls, the muzz could be deceitfully prodded to kill off each other in greater and greater numbers than are being born. And then someone could just put the remainder out of their misery.
