‘Selective Muslim silence’

“Where is the sane moderate peace loving Muslim world? Why is its voice so rarely raised in condemnation of Islamist atrocities? It is a question which has been raised in ever increasing urgency since 9/11 and not only by Westerners…. As human rights activist Abu Khwala explains, ‘fighting infidels until they either convert to Islam or submit to Muslims as “Dhimmis” is still considered by Islamists to be a religious duty’. Hence, any actions undertaken by Muslims towards that end must be vehemently defended with a total disregard of the means used and that is precisely what supposedly non Islamist Muslim leaders do.”
