Lumping Themselves

Reader comment on item: The Clash to End All Clashes?
in response to reader comment: A tragic mistake to lump all muslims with the forces of darkness...

"When a theatre, a school full of childern and parents, was taken hostage. Muslims were behind it. (And a muslim cleric in London said it was okay because they weren't muslim kids.)"

Yes. But as we see in Iraq, even that doesn't matter to the "insurgents."

Another interesting thing we see; suddenly the "moderate" Muslims find their voice and loudly and clearly protest the inhumanity...when the killing is of fellow Muslims, sometimes. And once they are "on a roll" you might expect them to also condemn violence to others? But, alas no. They just don't ever seem to pick up enough momentum for that. They need to save their energy for important things, like protesting cartoons that trifle with their insecurities, uh, I mean sanctities.
