Because good Muslims must not be seen as neutral in our conflict.

Of course not. It's the presumtion that they are neutral, or worse, that I'm questioning. Why presume peace-loving, law-abiding Muslims to be any more suspect than anyone else? Simply because they're Muslim?

It's not quite the same thing, but when Serbian Christians slaughter Muslims we don't demand public denunciations from Methodists and Quakers. When Christian radicals bomb abortion clinics, we don't point to the Pope's or Jerry Falwell's equivocating denunciations as evidence of widespread Christian tolerance of criminals and terrorists.
