Islam Calling Ghandi

Charles Moore asks: Where is the Gandhi of Islam? It’s a very good question. For sure, Gandhi’s not among the Muslim demogogues now offering perfunctory condolences for the victims and condemnations of the criminals, before adding: "Blair and Bush should never have set these events in motion…" As for Gandhi the man, his Indian consciousness was deeply imbued with respect for the Western idea of the individual, hardly an artifact of India at the time. A friend emails:
"What’s the deal with these peace-loving Muslims? Are they incapable of rooting out the bad apples from their own communities? I’d like to see some Muslim exercise good faith by turning in the terrorists that enjoy safe haven in these communities."
Now that would be a profile in courage.
