“There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”
Who said that?
Robert Spencer? Serge Trifkovic? Fjordman? Bat Ye’or?
No, the Prime Minister of Turkey said it, on Turkish television.
Recep Tayyip Erdođan is the leader of Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi (AKP, or Justice and Development Party), and has been Prime Minister since 2003. His party is an Islamic party, but is considered “moderate” as such things go, at least by the wishful-thinking dhimmi politicians and media pundits of the West.
Apparently, however, he’s sick of the “moderate” label being bandied about. He’d like to remind everybody that, just as there is only one Allah, there is only one Islam. None of this “moderate” crap for him!
