Where is ‘The Religion of Peace’

Islam is always referred to in our drive by media as a religion of peace.  However, I’m not the kind of person who gives trust, it must be earned.  I always wondered why after the Tube bombings in the UK we saw every leader from Tony Blair to George Bush at the Mosque showing that Islam is not the enemy, just radical Islam.  What I want to know is, why didn’t any Imams from the Mosque go to the capital?  Where are Islamic leaders that are speaking out against the actions of this so called ‘radical minority’ that has taken over the religion.

First it was a cartoon from a Danish paper, and now the knighting of Salman Rushdie.  A government minister in Pakistan yesterday said that Rushdie’s recent knighthood justified suicide bombings.

Hardliners in Iran revived calls for his murder yesterday. Mehdi Kuchakzadeh, a Tehran MP, declared: “Rushdie died the moment the late Imam [Ayatollah Khomeini] issued the fatwa.”

The Organisation to Commemorate Martyrs of the Muslim World, a fringe hardline group, offered a reward of $150,000 (£75,000) to any successful assassin.

Ijaz-ul-Haq, the Religious Affairs Minister, told the assembly in Islamabad that the award of the knighthood excused suicide bombing. “If somebody has to attack by strapping bombs to his body to protect the honour of the Prophet then it is justified,” he said.

Where are the leaders who’s religion does not include the death of a man, and does not include suicide bombings. As I scour the airwaves, the radio-waves, and the internet, I see none. Is Islam this radical religion that does not preach any peace; or has it been hijacked so far that those peaceful participants are afraid to open their mouths.

The 3rd Reich started as a small faction, and then, while everyone turned their heads, the dragon grew.
