I recently did some googling and I am having a real hard time trying to find examples of where prominent Muslim leaders admonish or decry the actions of other Muslims. With the exception of 9/11 examples of Muslims condeming other Muslims is far and few between.
With the recent bombing of the IRC in Iraq I have yet to find any promiment Muslim leader issuing any statements or fatwah’s(sp?) against these actions. This leads me to wonder if Muslim leaders are cowards. Are they just simply afraid of what could happen to them if they speak out? Is it out of loyalty they remain silent? Is a bad Muslim still better than a non-Muslim? Or is it possible they are speaking out but the mainstream media just ignores them??
I am really curious on this issue. I always hear how we shouldnt judge all Muslims by what a few bad seeds do, but I dont see many examples of “good” Muslims condeming these same actions.
