"Moderate cleric is Somalia's new president"

The headline says it all . . . "Moderate cleric is Somalia's new president".

We're supposed to applaud because "A moderate Islamist cleric was sworn in Saturday as Somalia's new president, a widely popular choice that could mark a turning point for the troubled nation."

Instead, shouldn't we have learned from our experiences in Iran, Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, etc., and realize that we always get burned by so called "moderate" clerics?
