    I see this term bandied about, but what is it really?

    On the muslim scale of 1 – 10 with 1 being your live and let live, peaceful, and allowing women equal rights muslim. 10 being your average burka enforcing al-quaeda bombing and killing everything non muslim in site. Is not everything that comes in the middle of that… moderate?

    I would like to know what is “moderate? What do moderates think, say, act.

    What is moderate in western terms and what is moderate in muslim terms? I am sure they are VERY different definitions of the where “moderate” falls.

    I know that moderates do not advocate genocide even in discussion.

    I dont think its much different than any other religion if it is taken literally always and followed to the letter all major religions are full of violence , slaying of the "bad guys" and with woman in a secondary role

    A moderate Muslim is one who keeps his mouth shut biding his time.

    Your 1-10 scale seems to insinuate that a more devout Muslim is automatically a more militant/jihadist Muslim, and I don't think that's the case.
