I'm really tired of the "why aren't more Muslims upset about X" canard I see trotted out all too often in political stories these days. It's inevitably used to justify some show of American force (Like bombing a wedding in Afghanistan) or used to subtley suggest that all Muslims are somehow subhuman.
A cursory googling would show that there are many, many Muslim-type folks who *do* protest violence, who *do* stand against Al Qaeda, and so on.
And here are a few of them.
Beyond the Comfort Zone: Passion and Peril at a Pro-Christian Rally | MindfulOfDreams.com
Al Qaeda does not have reverence for any innocent life, including those of Muslims. It is a fact that they have bombed many more Mosques in Iraq than churches.
While we were weary of the possibility that some people at the rally could lash out at us, Muslims-at-large who condemn terrorism, we were not interested in seeing ourselves as victims. The only victims we were prepared to recognize were the 52 innocent souls that were claimed by the recent church bombing, and the many others – Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and otherwise – claimed by terrorism.
And so we set out with signs including “An Attack on Your Church is an Attack on my Mosque,” “American Muslims, Iraqi Christians, One Blood,” “My Brother is an Assyrian,” “We Stand with Iraqi Christians,” and “Muslims for Peace.”
