Salim Mansur: “We have a deadly silence of the Muslim leadership”

On the massacre of Catholics in Baghdad (here, here, here and here), Muslim secular author Salim Mansur writes:

The non-Muslim world is increasingly not surprised and unmoved by the depravity of Muslim jihadis committing outrage, one after another without end in sight, and what can only be explained, unsatisfactorily, as a pathological wish to cause pain to the living by random acts of terrorist violence.

The murderous attack on the church in central Baghdad last Sunday by Muslim terrorists, if we go with the news reports, was merely another not unusual blood-soaked event in the daily cycle of news from Muslim countries.

But if such an atrocity was not just another criminal event in a “normal” day across the Arab-Muslim world, then we should have heard of a special meeting being called at the UN, or in one of the capitals of member states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, to express outrage against those who killed innocent worshippers inside Our Lady of Deliverance Syriac Catholic Church in Baghdad.

We then should have heard of Muslim political and religious leaders expressing their grief over the dead and wounded — there were some 120 Iraqi Christians in attendance at the Sunday evening mass when Muslim terrorists attacked the church and left 58 dead with only a dozen escaping unhurt.

Instead, we have deathly silence of the Muslim leadership as non-Muslim minorities inside the Arab-Muslim world are routinely abused, their homes and places of worship under daily duress, and their hearts filled with fear of violent death in the hands of Muslim jihadis.

The silence signifies the abdication of any responsibility by governments of the Arab-Muslim world to protect non-Muslims in their countries, and severely punish those who target them.

    I wish there were more like Mr. Mansur; unfortunately, I think he’s (pardon the expression) pissing into the wind. Since there is NEVER any condemnation of such outrages by Islamic leaders, I conclude that they themselves are the problem. There are no extremists; Islam is extreme. These murderers have got to be stopped, and I suspect we Americans are the only ones that can do it.

      I know what you mean, Bob. But as I have told Angel, I like to read him denouncing this.

      Well, in Iraq they have condemned it, but they don’t condemn the ideology that lies within. The condemn the attacks, but not the situation of second-class citizens (dhimmitude, if you are Jew or Christian), non-Muslim have in Muslim lands. And they haven’t also criticized Egyptian sheikhs calls for violence against Copts, the “excuse” given by AQ to carry the attack. And that lack of condemnation is more dangerous, because it gives justification to the next attack.😥

      • Bob Mack says:

        I suspect it was condemned in Iraq only because we’re still there (don’t believe Obama’s drivel ’bout combat troops being out–he just changed the unit designations). But with political buffoons like Napolitano and Panetta running Homeland and CIA, and PC poison so prevalent that people who pretend to be rational defend the construction of a GZ victory mosque (for that is exactly what it is), I am cynical in the extreme about our ability to prevent another serious attack on U.S. soil, let alone overseas.

    Heh, Bob, we have Zapatero here, remember? I know what a political marketing operation looks like.🙂
    Yes, I also think they have condemned it, because of international troops being there.
    I think the difficulty lies in not being able to identify the problem. If you have an important number of people (the percentage differs from one country to another) who support jihad as a mean to change politically the country, that’s a problem. You should name it as it is, and not consider they are just outsiders, because as a lot of them prove, seem to be well “integrated” in society (for example, the car bomber of NY’s Time Square). If you disguise the problem, you won’t be able to confront it.
