The evidence for the likelihood of such moderate leadership isn't there. Why will it suddenly be there in the future. It is quite sad that what few brave souls in the muslim world that have the courage to speak out against their fascist states are left hanging in the wind, even by their so called enlightened counterparts in the west.

The west seems truly terrified of these maniacs and to some degree with good reason. Playing it safe won't work though. Why haven't the washington post, ny times, boston globe and other american newspapers printed the cartoons as part of reporting the news? That's an important question directly related to the questions raised here.
