Nabil, That is an excellent post. I apologise if earlier it seemed I was gunning for you. I'm not. I do know that the "problem" has reached crisis point and it is not going to be easy to solve. It is going to take both East and West, Muslim and non-muslim to fight this "cancer". But first and foremost, I think what we need is a clear sign from the muslim community that this is not going to be tolerated any further. Then and only will the non-muslims get on board.

"I agree that Most Muslims around the world are not extremists. I am also alarmed by the prospect that a large number of Muslims who may not be extremists at all may not be altogether hostile towards them, either"

I think in the UK where muslims are a minority I would say the majority are not hostile towards the extremists and that has to change. The bottom line is these extremist clerics like Abu Hamza are routinely breaking the law when they incite racial hatred and encourage murder and the muslims in the mosques have to report them to the authorities.
