I've been waiting for months for an op-ed or letter from a Muslim leader condemning the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East. So far, nothing but silence while Egypt and Iraq's Coptic Christians have suffered the worst attacks since the 14th century and the slaughter spreads to Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, Nigeria and Kenya. Why are our local Islamic leaders silent? Are they so unaware of history? They assure us that most Muslims are peace-loving and the terrorists are only a small minority.
I'll accept this but neither were most Russians and Chinese dedicated Communists nor most Germans avid Nazis -- but by their silence/submission they enabled those evil minorities to murder more than 100 million people. Silence is never a solution!
