A "Moderate" Islamist? Horse Feathers!

Can one be a "moderately" Marxist, "moderately" fascist or, for that matter, "moderately" pregnant?

Of course not.

Then what makes anyone think that one can be a "moderate" Islamist (the claim in this AFP article), or--and here's the real joke--that Turkey's wannabe-caliph-in-chief (currently bloviating about how Israel owes him an apology, his way of showing he's the strongest horse in the Dar al Islam stable) is one?

We know that Turkey does genocide really well. With the immoderate Islamist (the only kind of Islamist there is) in charge, it looks like it could be jockeying to take the lead on its second one.
