A relative glimmer of hope, maybe?

Reader comment on item: Deadly Denial [of Muslim Anti-Semitism]

True, Mr. Mohamad's comments are nothing new, but perhaps some credit may be due. His speech was one of the first I have heard from a Muslim 'leader' that actually exhorted his fellow Muslims to take RESPONSIBLITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY for their plight. This is a sharp contrast to the persistent victim and suffering mythology propagated by Muslim leaders for generations (which drives the anti-Semitism your article is about). It may not signal a change in the vicious hatred espoused by these so-called 'Muslim leaders,' but a step, nonetheless.

Things in the East (hemisphere) change at much more glacial pace than here in the West. Given the slight shift in methodology of Mr. Mohamad's comments and coupled with the recent protests for reform in Saudi Arabia (I thought all Arabs blamed America and the Jews - who knew they also demanded change from their Arab leaders?) and a New Iraq, the stage may be set for further progress. Hopefully, President Bush will still be in office to see some evidence of his bold actions.
