I am not going to go into anymore details in response to your post though you do have some very valid points. It seems you have been moved to a great extent re the Beslan children as I have been. I have posted on this subject in many forums but was shocked to see there was hardly any response save for yours.

Whenever i think of Beslan I keep wondering how these beasts could make those tiny tots drink their own urine and mow them down (of the 330 odd people perished more than 50% were children). I keep asking where in the world is the so called 'moderate muslim'. As far as i know not a single condemnation from a renowned muslim. WHY? The muslims vented their fury by burning, pillaging, shooting, killing and of course burning the Israeli and American flags in response to those inane cartoons. The entire muslim 'ummah' boycotted Danish products in unison but to them the children of Beslan meant nothing. WHY?

It seemed the entire Indian muslim community came out to protest Bush's visit and the nuclear deal with India not withstanding the facts that the deal elevated India's standing in the comity of nuclear nations. Every Indian like me was proud of this except of course the Islamists and the commies. Again not a single Indian 'moderate' muslim thought it fit to condemn the Beslan massacre.
