Why some Muslims won’t condemn terror

“As for “root causes,” the former president of the Toronto based North American Muslim Foundation, Sheharyar Shaikh and Imam of Masjid Qurtabah, writes: “If the murder of three people during the Boston Marathon held on Patriot’s Day became a “cowardly” act, U.S. drone bombing on Shigal, an Afghan village, a week prior to the Marathon, causing 11 children and a woman to be blown to fleshy bits not cowardly as well? — thus raising the count of U.S drone killings of Afghani/Pakistani children to over 200.”

It is such fallacious moral equivalencies that have prevented Muslims and their non-Muslim supporters from acknowledging the truth, from owning up to the fact that radical Islamic extremists do in fact commit terror in the name of Islam.
