Muslims worry about image after Mumbai

Many on the defensive again after bloodshed linked to their religion

RAMALLAH, West Bank – Muslims from the Middle East to Britain and Austria condemned Sunday the Mumbai shooting rampage by suspected Islamic militants as senseless terrorism, but also found themselves on the defensive once again about bloodshed linked to their religion.

Intellectuals and community leaders called for greater efforts to combat religious fanaticism.

Indian police said Sunday that the only surviving gunman told them he belongs to the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba. The group is seen as a creation of Pakistani intelligence to help fight India in the disputed Kashmir region. Another group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, has also operated in Kashmir. Both are reported to be linked to al-Qaida.

Ten gunmen attacked 10 targets in the three-day assault including a Jewish community center and luxury hotels in India’s commercial hub. More than 170 people were killed.

Worried about impact on religion
Many Muslims said they are worried such carnage is besmirching their religion.

“The occupation of the synagogue and killing people in hotels tarnishes the Muslim faith,” said Kazim al-Muqdadi, a political science lecturer at Baghdad University. “Anyone who slaughters people and screams `Allahu Akbar’ (God is Great) is sick and ignorant.”

In Britain, home to nearly two million Muslims, a spokesman for the Muslim Council of Britain, Inayat Bunglawala, said that “a handful of terrorists like this bring the entire faith into disrepute.”

Read the rest.

So now hundreds of thousands constitute only a handful? Not to mention the millions who came before the “handful” waging jihad today.

Funny that muslims never condemn honor killings, stonings, rapes, suicide bombings, carbombings, and decapitations of kuffar, but when people like me point out that the bloodshed isn’t linked to islam, it is a DIRECT RESULT OF ISLAM, I am labeled an islamophobe and a racist. As usual muslims play the victim card, and the imbeciles on the left blame America. Yet none of them seem capable of pulling their heads out of their asses far enough to see that islam was doing this long before there was a United States.

    While the terrorism disgusts me it is not what discredits Islam most in my eyes. Far more damage is done to Islam merely by listening to the beliefs of its adherents on issues like the role of women, equality before the law, the freedom to change one's religion, the separation of religion and secular authority, human rights and many other issues. Terrorism is just one straw of many on the camel's back. Those who "don't condone" terror yet refuse to condemn it and who appear on TV and radio to equivocate and justify the actions of terrorists while blaming us for being Islamophobic are actually worse than terrorists since they are the source of the poison that turns people into terrorists.
