ONE Islamic cleric?

Reader comment on item: [Finding Moderate Muslims:] Do you believe in modernity?

Submitted by Scott (United States), Nov 26, 2003 at 10:31

I'd like to know if one, just one, Islamic cleric whom we consider to be part of "moderate Islam" will outright, publicly condemn the use of suicide bombing. Has there been one? If not, I don't want to hear anymore talk about there being two Islams (moderate and radical) because until the so-called moderates condemn tactics such as suicide bombing, their silence equals complicity.
