And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

Where’s The Outrage???

FOXNews.com – U.S. & World – North American Muslims Issue Fatwa Against Terrorism

I am sure this has been done before, but it’s the first time I have ever seen a news headline where Muslim leadership are decrying the heinous acts being done in the name of Islam around the world. Even Hugh Hewitt has been hinting at the vast majority of Muslims who do not believe in violence as a normal part of spreading Islam in the world, and this is a point I will have to disagree with him on. The reason I disagree? Evidence. There should be some degree of evidence in support of a theory that Islam is at its core, a peaceful worldview.

I happen to know that there are many Muslims who are both patriotic and peaceful Americans, but my problem has been with understanding why millions of Muslims worldwide are not in the streets shouting and demonstrating against violence and terrorism if Islam is truly such a peaceful and wonderfully civilized religion.

Fatwa’s sound great – let’s get some real outrage here from the masses…
