..by both of you. But as I have long said there is no moderate Muslim or Islam. All Islam is same and all Muslims are same. The so called "moderate" Muslims who complain that we are not paying any attention to them are silently supporting the radicals by not openly and honestly speaking out against them. Also their complaint is misplaced as we are paying a lot of attention to them, hoping that they will openly join us in war against the Islamic terror, however that does not happen.

As an example look at CAIR and other Muslim organizations, pretending to represent main stream and moderate Muslims. However, all their actions are always against the American way of life and culture, trying to curb freedom of speech, filing suits against American corporations for some perceived isnult of Islam, etc. I don't know what are they doing here if they hate our way of life so much.Yet, they can't even criticize Sudanese government for carrying out genocide in Darfur region. Why, because its the Muslim government in Sudan .

So, how can Muslim criticize another Muslim. How many Muslim imams in USA and world wide have issued a fatwa for killing bin Laden and Jawahiri or mullah Omar? And are there any Muslims who are working hard to carry out these fatwas, if any. On the other hand Salman Rushdie had to go into hiding after the Iranian fatwa for writing a book.

One wonders, how many mosques in USA still carry Saudi Arabian religious literature which calls christians, jews, infidels as apes and monkeys?? If they harbour such nonsensical and hateful beliefs against fellow human beings even now, what better can be expected from them. We don't find these "fine and upstanding" Muslim organiztions, CAIR etc, in fore front fighting to correct these and so many other problems of their religion.

So as you say the silence of "moderate" Muslims is indeed deafening!!
