Still the silence deafens

CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) is still silent on the issue of Muslim-on-Muslim killings.

On March 27, a young boy, sitting in the midst of Friday prayers, stood up, shouted “Allahu Akbar,” and blew himself up, killing at least 48 and virtually destroying the mosque.

A search of the CAIR website finds no mention of this atrocity.  There are press releases, but they concern themselves primarily with the events of 9/11.

Before CAIR can expect to be successful with convincing others that Islam is a religion of peace, it will have to take a leadership role in reforming the religion to strip Islamist extremists of the claim that Koranic verses allow, if not demand, killing in the name of the deity.

This blasphemy must be condemned, loudly and persistently.

It is to be hoped that CAIR will rise to the occasion.  Soon.  And be successful on both counts.

Trust, but verify.
