Blair said acts by Islamic terrorists should not reflect negatively on Britain's large Muslim population. "We know that these people act in the name of Islam, but we also know that the vast and overwhelming majority of Muslims, here and abroad, are decent and law-abiding people who abhor this act of terrorism every bit as we do," he said in London after meeting with emergency-response officials.
OK, if this is true, we will see an outcry from imams in their mosques, from muslims in all countries. If you expect us to believe this, there must be evidence of it. Without that, then we know what we must do. The question is, does the West have the fortitude to do it.
