"Elmasry complains that Steyn's book tars entire Muslim communities as complicit in violent jihad"
Is it just me or does anyone else find it obtuse of Elmasry to complain that Steyn is claiming that entire Muslim communities are complicit in violent Jihad when the word Jihad is Islamic/Muslim for holy war?
I have heard no major Muslim community expressing it's outrage against their brethren that are involved in the various "Jihads" around the globe, demanding they cease.
I have heard no Muslim clerics preaching love and tolerance of the "infidels" (my wording here meant to include all non-muslims).
I've not seen any Wahabi schools closed down because the clerics had a change of heart.
What I have seen with my own eyes are a proliferation of tracts encouraging Jihad against everything that is not Shariah.
By not speaking out against Jihad, demanding it's end, condeming it's leaders and those who are involved in it, are the Muslim communities not complicit in it?
