Where is the Muslim Outrage?
Who Speaks for Islam?
Except for a very few daring Muslim clergy or leaders, there has never been any large or mass outrage of terrorist attacks upon non-Muslim people. Why? Why? Why?
Is it their way of silently agreeing when a British soldier off duty is hacked to death by a Muslim shouting, "Allahu Akbar" or 3000 US citizens are killed when airplanes conduct suicidal missions in NYC and screaming the same or "God is Great"?
Then there are those who are killed because the Muslim thinks the victim is not sufficiently reverent towards Islam, like the Dutch filmmaker in 2004. Allahu Akbar to you too! How can Muslims be so sensitive to defending Islam's reputation yet so desensitized to beheadings, mutilation and other murders all in the name of Islam? Maybe there is a Dr. Jekyll and Dr. Hyde personality complex innate to Muslims?
Why do the majority of good Muslims speak with so little volume and disgust and allow the radical terrorists using Islam to create the Jihad to defile God under false pretenses? Who in their right mind would EVER, EVER, think a just God would instruct his followers to kill all infidels, as the extreme Islamists claim are his orders?
A few bad apples have been allowed to totally ruin whatever the good Muslims of the world try to preserve. The Muslims that do speak out against the radical elements have pithy comments that are pedestrian- "Good Muslims are just sickened by the attack like everyone else". These few Muslims try to reassure the world that the terrorist attack that exploded body parts all over the street, ruined families and so, that, the attack has no connection to Islam and are a aberration. Really?! Don't the Muslim terrorists always cite verses from the Koran to justify their action? How can a Muslim say that? Maybe there are different versions of islam and the Koran. That would be no surprise.
What Muslim in the West really speaks for all Muslims living in Western countries? There must be an Islamic version of the Pope. Instead, there are just too many voices in Islam claiming to hear God, or represent the "real" Islam. When will a Muslim leader actually admit there is a problem with Islam and these terrorist actions and do something about it? Why does Islam promote killing or maim on religious grounds? It is the only religion today that talks about infidels as being barbaric. Why does Islam insist that everyone should be Muslim? Islam is the only religion that tries to pressure you to do so. If a Muslim man marries a non-Muslim, you can be sure the spouse will be forced to become Muslim. Islam is more like Communism. It is all about controlling others in mind and heart.
Most Muslims are good people and not terrorists, but they always try to distance themselves from terrorist attacks in the name of Allah. They never admit that there is a link between Islam and terror. Terror is part of the Koran camouflaged as punishment or something to do against the infidel. It is still terror.
These terrorist attacks are causing a great divide between the non-Muslim and Muslim communities and the Muslim leaders are not helping to stop it. They remain too silent when an attack kills many. They should be telling their followers to be outraged and make the world hear their voices that Islam has been hijacked by rogue Islamists who kill under its cover and its name. Thousands of Muslims should take to the streets to denounce the terrorists so the attacker knows most Muslims do not agree with their position. This should not just be once but a consistent march, much like the Civil Rights movement. Their voices should be heard so they can be a good influence for Muslims and Islam. Remaining quiet or just saying "Sorry, we feel your pain" is not going to work.
The ironic thing about Islam is that its followers chant, "It is a religion of peace". Are they joking? What planet are they on? Maybe they mean, " It is a religion of peace for Muslims only" and to hell with the rest of you.
With each terrorist attack, non-Muslims are influenced in a bad way about Islam and Muslims. You would think the Muslim community would try to change this hellish PR.

Odds are if you are under 40 yrs, you have never even heard of a Chevy Corvair as they stopped making them in 1969. Some 20-30 somethings think they are a Japanese car. If you were a kid in the mid to late 60's, you...
