“Canadian Muslims are once again forced to apologize for something they had nothing to do with, that according to one imam who says other faith groups aren’t held to the same standards.”
This is just an attempt to obscure the real issue. It’s true: no one should expect Muslims in Canada or anywhere else to apologize for what another Muslim did in Britain. They indeed had nothing to do with it. But there remains the question of whether the Muslim in Britain was acting in accord with teachings of Islam that call for violence against unbelievers. If so, Muslims in Canada and everywhere else, if they reject those teachings, should be working to make sure that no other Muslims act according to the understanding of Islam that the Muslim in Britain had. instead, Syed Soharwardy whines about collective guilt.
