The myth of the 'moderate' Muslim

Salim Mansur writes an excelent article about the lack of Moderate Muslims in this world, and how the current status-quo within muslim communities help groups like Al-Qaida, Hamas and Hezbollah:

The expectation there is a large, identifiable segment of "moderate" Muslims is a transposition to the Muslim world of the idea of "moderation" in politics and religion that sustains democracies.


But this has not happened. On the contrary, as atrocities mount, Muslims generally have remained -- their private anguish aside --publicly complacent, and their religious leaders divided on what should be the proper Islamic response.

There has been no spontaneous or organized demonstration of Muslims across the Arab-Muslim world, nor in European or North American cities where Muslims reside in increasing numbers, in support of victims of such terror and in unqualified condemnation of extremists who exploit Islam for their criminal purposes.

Thanks for pointing out that link on Canadianna's comments. I've been wondering why the "moderates" haven't been vocalizing.

Salim Mansur is an excellent columnist... his columns are always very reasonable and make a lot of sense.

This is a great blog you have here... you are filling a much needed role in the Blogging Tories, as well as in the blogosphere at large.

I look forward to reading more of your work!
