Where’s the outrage?

If most of the Muslims of the world are decent, peace-loving citizens, then where is their outrage against the Taliban, Al Qaeda and the other violent murderous Islamics? They kill schoolgirls for the crime of seeking an education, or throw acid in their faces, they set off bombs in crowds of civilians, and they bomb mosques and churches. In Mali, where the situation was horrible, European forces are trying to restore peace.

Why not Islamic countries? Where is their outrage? Why are the supposedly “moderate” Islamic nations not taking action? Do they privately cheer these militants, or are they just afraid?

If they wonder what are the causes of Islamophobia, they need look no further. They are all tarred by the same brush. They need to step up to the plate.
