60 Minutes: The Network Part 2

Reporter: "He also targeted criminals, drug dealers, who were told their activities would be cleansed for a percentage of their profits."

Repentant Muslim: "What I've come to realize is that killing for the sake of killing, and killing in the name of Islam for the sake of killing is completely and utterly prohibited and is a big disease, a big problem and a cancer in the Muslim world, and it's a very dangerous cancer, and it needs to be dealt with.

"Muslims can pluck up the courage to ask questions, regardless of the consequences."

Reporter: "The position of moderate Muslims is that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism. Do you buy that?"

Repentant Muslim: "By completely being in denial is like an alcoholic. Unless an alcoholic acknowledges he has a problem with alcohol, he is never goiong to be able to go forward. And as long as we as Muslims do not acknowledge that there is a violent streak in Islam, unless we acknowledge that, then we are always going to lose the battle to the militants by being in complete denial about it."
