After we have a terrorist incident we are usually left with silence from the majority of muslims. Many that do manage to say something recite the old "yeah, but" routine. You know how it is "we regret and decry these violent acts, but you have to understand where these people are coming from". My POV is "No we don't"! When you go down that road, you are creating excuses for killing and maiming large numbers of innocent civilians. I reject all such moral equivalency arguments. - BG


Do you think that some of them are simply afraid to speak out or speak out too stridently for fear of retribution from the nutjob jihadists? I wonder how many of them truly are afraid for their safety and conclude its better to not draw attention to yourself.
