Just for the record:
The Four types of Muslim
1/ the first type of Muslim is not really a Muslim at all, in the same way that a false Christian is not really a Christian. These people believe Islam to be peaceful, because they do not really understand it. They rarely go to mosque, know little about the Koran (apart from a few verses that they have memorised in Arabic) and because of denial, wishful thinking, or plain ignorance, believe that Islam is a force for good. They are the type of Muslim that will readily defend Islam by claiming that those who attack it know little about it or have been brainwashed by the anti-Muslim press. The truth is, they are the ones in ignorance. They are also afraid of ‘extremists’ and ‘radicals’ within their own religion.
Good people at heart, they are more likely to find salvation in Jesus and apostatize from Islam if they are given the chance.
Examples: Many ‘moderate’ Muslims living in the West such as your friendly Muslim next door.
2/ the second type of Muslim is the first type of true Muslim. These people are deceitful. They are aware of Islam’s violent side but prefer not to use it. They sincerely believe that non-Muslims will accept Islam if they are given a false picture of it. They use taqiyya (lies) to fool non-Muslims and moderates alike. They practise 'dawa' (evangelicalism) at every opportunity, and will use every trick in the book to mislead, confuse and bewilder. They come at you with smiles, but these are only false smiles. Rarely will their true colors show, but the mask slips occasionally. If you do your research and don't blink you will see when the mask slips off!
Examples: Tariq Ramadan, Reza Aslan
3/ the third type of Muslim will use deceit less and aggression more. They are often well-versed in the Qu’ran and Hadiths. They will often play the victim. They take responsibility for nothing. Everything is the fault of the infidel. They will openly preach hatred and encourage other Muslims to be violent, but will rarely be violent themselves (at least not openly). They will use excuses for their hatred and blame the United States, Israel, Britain, immodestly dressed women, perceived oppression, or whatever they can. Their level of hatred depends on how confident they are feeling about their level of power. If they believe that the non-Muslim is in a position of weakness, they will spew their venom, but if their own position is weak they will remain silent, or say something that the enemy wants to hear.
Examples: Anjem Choudary, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, Yasser Arafat, Ayatollah Khomeini
4/ this type of Muslim is what some may describe as a full-blown terrorist. They will be part of the physical battle, either as preachers and leaders, or at the very bottom as Allah’s foot-soldiers, including those willing to die for their cause such as Taliban guerrillas and suicide bombers. They are violent, untrustworthy, and their intentions are to fight for Islam at all costs. It is virtually impossible to reason with them. Are they a lost cause? Who knows? But it is doubtful that they will ever change.
Examples: Osama bin Laden, the Saudi 9/11 bombers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Michael Adebolajo
Please note that it is not always easy to identify which group a Muslim belongs to, especially the first two groups, as both these groups have very similar characteristics.
