Good news; bad news and a question

Reader comment on item: Canada's Muslims, Not of One Mind

Submitted by There is NO Santa Claus (United States), Nov 2, 2011 at 07:52

Dr. Pipes' essay presents good news and bad news. The good news leaves me asking a question:

If 13% of Canada's Muslims approve of Israel, how come there is no ORGANIZED support for Israel amongst Canadian Muslims?

13% of 700,000 Muslim Canadians represents 90,000 people. Such a number is sufficient to expect an organized pro-Israel support group. I'd love to see such a group.

If there really are modernist Muslims in the west, the existence of a Muslim Zionist organization (analogous to Christian Zionist organizations) would be re-assuring.
