From the “What Took You So Long?” Department

It’s about time those almost mythological “moderate Muslims” put in an appearance, isn’t it?

Clearly these are Muslims who don’t want to rock the boat too much… It was only when an Islamic terrorist attempted to blow up a plane over their backyards that a handful of them sprang quietly into action. Very very quietly.

If Islam truly is a peaceful religion (as we hear so often), if only a tiny fraction of Muslims are terrorists (as so many insist), where are all these moderates, and why don’t they speak up with one voice and denounce these terror attacks? Why does it take an attempted attack over the largest Muslim community in the country for a few Muslims to softly voice their polite disapproval of the hijacking of their religion?

Is it possible that we all already know why, and are just afraid to voice the correct answer? You tell me.

You can’t blame him, really. After all, he’s on vacation. So to ask the President to sound, well, presidential as he makes his “reassuring” little speech about the Christmas Day attempted terrorist attack three whole days after the event,  is really a bit much. And I think it’s entirely understandable that he sounds rather perfunctory.

Oh, and that “…we will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable” bit? Hyperbole? Poetic license? Mere rehtoric?

You tell me.
