Needed: Mass Demonstrations of Freedom-Loving Muslims

Today’s NY Post had a piece by Phil Mushnick that resonated with me. In it, he recalls the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai that left 200 dead and more than 300 injured and asks a tough question. If it is true that Muslims condemn such senseless carnage against innocent civilians, why is there greater evidence to the contrary?

Mushnick asks, if Muslims are truly up in arms about the violence caused by terrorists in the name of their God, why don’t they get out there and show their anger at the terrorists? Why is it that the only demonstrations for which Muslims turn out in force “call for more blood, more murder, ‘Death to the Infidels!’ and the sustained cry for jihad, the world over?”

Good question, Phil. Now if only the people who make up our free press asked the same question of the next Muslim organization that "condemns" the next Muslim terrorist act.
