Muslims who fight against Terrorism

Janette from Common Sense Runs Wild reminds us that while there has not been as large as an outcry in the Muslim community against terrorism as many of us would like; there has been one and it is growing. Supporting the Muslims who stand up against the radicals of their religion is vital. Islam isn't going to go away and those angry young men who are being seduced by the power that terrorism brings need to be shown a healthy alternative to violence. Who is best to show them that? Me? A white Pentecostal girl in America? Or their brethren at their neighborhood mosque?

Think about it and go read Janette's hopeful post.

Thanks Jody. I just think there's a better way to handle this than to mock and berate all Muslims for not speaking out againts terrorism. Yes it would be nice if hundreds of thousands would take to the streets but maybe it's more realistic promote and support those who have the courage to speak out against the radicals. I admit it's not a solution to the problem but maybe it's a step in the right direction.

(Does this count toward my essay on Whirled Peas?)

It is easy to belittle the Muslims for not standing up against the violence amongst their own. We should consider that they know they could be killed by doing so and they do not have the assurance of salvation the born again experience gives one. Thanks for the heads up on this one -
