The role of "moderate" Muslims in Islamists' Massacres on the West

Reader comment on item: The Scourge of Suicide Terrorism

If 'moderate' Muslims would really reject terrorism (Clarity for the confused -- targeting the unarmed, something like Hamas/Al-Qaeda/Hezbollah/Islamic-Jihad) as strongly, the radicals would not have carried it out... they need the support of mainstream Muslims.

A typical 'moderate' Muslim on 9/11.. "Oh, it is terrible what Islamists militants have done, but, but..." It is that "but" thing that is part of the COVER that they (MUHAMMAD ATTA & CO.) feel comfortable in it's shell.

Though most Muslims might not supporting it actively, but passively, yes they do. Typical are also those that say, "Oh I condemn but, but I understand...". --- these words are just about enough for radicals to continue their mass-murder.

The first step would be (for instance), for the mainstream Muslim leaders to PROMISE for the youth that strive to be Genocide-Bombers, that they will absolutely NOT be awarded in heaven (sex with 72 "virgins" or other).

Isn't that already the case? Hardly, it is never so clear, ambiguity is their song.

They really think that they defend any Muslim honor by "rationalizing" the bloodshed as a form of any frustration, typical is also why they use the "Palestine" thing. how they try to so hard to portray them as "victims" and to cover the dirty massacres as a "frustrated" youth under (Oh, I am gonna a puke when I use this-their dreadful sick excuse) ... "occupation"...

When in fact they try to wash one crime with another...

Many in GB have woken up (which I knew all along) after the London bombing to find out that these butchers are not the busted-myth of "deprived" poor guys...

Hence, when a Muslim leader wants to "explain" to me "why" there are Homicide Bombers, he is not only not helping Muslim image, he becomes part of the problem, which is the backbone of radicals' crimes, they need so desperately the mainstream Muslims' support or at least their sympathy, like oxygen (not funny) to their death-cult.

I hope that most Westerners realize that Islamic radicals' war on the West was/is inevitable, and of course they will say it is "for this", that "it is for that", leave the entire Middle East alone for a second... they would "accuse" the entire West for 'siding by Russia' VS The Low human beings from Chechnya the "heroic" warriers on School children...

The Islamists keep forgetting that the "excuse" called "Palestine", is a crime by it self, not only on innocent Israelis but on their own kids, it is no more secret the animalistic tactics they use over there to use their own kids as weapons and as shields when they fire behind their little shoulders, Remember! behind every 'stone thrower' there is an ADULT (or more) with a machine gun, [unless you are still naive to buy that garbage of the most unfair photo of our time... kid-vs-tank... as if they use tanks against the unarmed...] , and no! you do not have to be a "Zionist" to side with Israel's ( Are the "Palestinians" really the victims??? ) fight for it's survival.

Next, they will also have to invent some real hard [fresh] excuses why they (radical Islamists) enslave, maim & slaughter millions of Sudanese, bomb youth in Bali, bomb their own brothers in S. Arabia, decapitate tourists in the Philippines etc.

But if they don't change their way -- moderate Muslims towards terror -- not only the world will suffer, but Islam's image too.

Do they get it?
