The Muslim Wall of Silence

Pages: 1 2

Compare the (at best) tepid response of the Azahari family and other Malaysian Muslims to the response of another family that had one of its own become a mass murderer — the family of Cho Seung Hui.  Cho, as many no doubt remember, was a Korean American who murdered 32 people in 2007 at a university in Virginia before taking his own life.  In the aftermath of this devastating tragedy, the family issued a powerful and eloquent statement to the world and to the relatives of the victims.  This statement reads, in part:

On behalf of our family, we are so deeply sorry for the devastation my brother has caused. No words can express our sadness that 32 innocent people lost their lives this week in such a terrible, senseless tragedy. We are heartbroken.We pray for their families and loved ones who are experiencing so much excruciating grief. And we pray for those who were injured and for those whose lives are changed forever because of what they witnessed and experienced.

It is telling that despite their shock, grief and unimaginable horror, the Cho family managed to compose and release this brief, but articulate public statement.  In no uncertain terms, it makes it clear how the Cho family felt about the actions of their loved one, a loved one who, like Azahari Husin, mercilessly slaughtered so many.  And still, this one simple statement is light years ahead of anything ever spoken by any of the family or friends of Dr. Azahari.

Why is it that to this day the Azahari family has chosen to say nothing even remotely similar?  And in a more general vein, why haven’t any of the families of the 9-11 hijackers (who mostly reside in the supposed US ally Saudi Arabia) issued statements like the Cho family? Or the families of the countless other jihadists who have committed more than 17,000 acts of murder and mayhem in the past ten years?  Where are their apologies? Indeed, why do all of these Muslim families to this day steadfastly refuse to denounce the unspeakable crimes of their loved ones?

The explanation for this wall of silence is simple yet troubling: while a lot of Muslims may talk of peaceful co-existence, in actuality they tacitly approve of what Islamic terrorists do. These terrorists are, rather often, lionized as heroes in the Islamic world.

Now, it is admittedly true that some Muslim groups have come forward to denounce Islamic terror. But for every Muslim or Muslim group that publicly comes forward, many others choose not to. And considering what sort of hateful, Quranically inspired rhetoric is being preached in many if not most American mosques nowadays, how can we trust that these Muslim condemnations that are heard are anything close to sincere?

The official policy of Muslim countries like Malaysia is to condemn Islamic terrorism. When need be — often right after a spectacular Muslim terrorist attack — Muslim countries and organisations are quick to release generalised, pro-forma, mealy-mouthed condemnations of ‘terrorism’.  Strangely enough, however, they can never get around to disavowing Hamas, Hizbullah, Al Qaeda, etc. specifically and by name. Even if such pronouncements disavowed any group specifically, the feelings expressed in the Muslim media and by the Muslims themselves have shown how worthless Muslim denouncements of terrorism really are.

Many naive Westerners are convinced that all these pro-terrorist attitudes will fade away once economic prosperity comes to the Islamic world.  It’s important to remember that many, perhaps most middle and upper class Muslims are firmly in favor of Islamic terrorism. Underscoring this truth is the fact that many Islamic terrorists hail from educated, prosperous middle and upper class families — Osama bin Laden was from the richest non-royal family in Saudi Arabia, and New York Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad’s father is an air vice marshal in Pakistan’s Air Force, to name but two examples.

So let’s just face the fact that, if you are a non Muslim — and most people on the planet are — a whole lot of Muslims want you dead or converted to Islam…unless you’re Jewish, in which case, only dead will do.

But don’t just take my word for it.  You can look it up…in the Muslim media.

    Its always the muslim majority, not the radical minority, that causes terrorism. The world saw no fatwa for Osama.

  • El Cid

    Is any more proof needed that Islam and Muslims are actively at war with the `Kuffar' world and seek to eliminate all who do not acknowledge their god?

    Their god is not the God of Creation, by the way.

    • Syed

      Who told u so hav u ever read any books on Islam written by a muslim?

      • Steve

        I would never read a book directly influenced by SATAN. Syed you might want to read it with OPEN eyes.

    • shaks

      the quran says ,beleive in ALLAH, he is the god of islam,christianity,judiasm,the unseen,omnipotent,almighty, he is your creator, to him will u all return,his prophets include jesus,noah,isaac,david,mohammed,moses, please read the quran which talks of all the prophets ending with mohammed, and in islam there is nothing like their god and our god, GOD is one for all

        Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

        Islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

        Islam strives for world domination.

        The Quran commands Muslims to exercise jihad.

        The Quran commands Muslims to establish shariah law.

        The Quran commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.

        Islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

        Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

        Shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a Islamic society.

        From civic- and family law to criminal law.

        It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

        Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

        The core of the Quran is the call to jihad.

        Jihad means a lot of things and is Arabic for battle.

        Islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

        Islam and freedom, Islam and democracy are not compatible.

        They are opposite values.

        Mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

        That makes Mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

        And you want to base a "Religion" on this a z z -holes rantings?

        Are you INSANE?

    • marat 1

      I have read the Koran and consider it to be one of the most vicious, heinous document ever recorded. It overflows with the incitement to murder Jews (who are PARTICULARLY centered out) but all "Non-Believers," i.e. non-Muslims. The entire thrust of Islam boils down to ONE thing alone–the spread of Islam and the Koran SANCTIONS the use of violence, intimidation, murder to achieve this goal. So why in the world do people in the media try to analyze the current Epidemic of Islamic slaughter worldwide? Its all in the Koran baby and NOTHING is going to change until that wicked, twisted work is revised by Muslims. And I am not holding my breath…."Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers." 2:191-2 "The "Religion of Truth" (Islam) must prevail, by force if necessary, over all other religions."9:33 Sorry, I woke up long ago. Islam is NOT a religion at all. It is a violent theo-political ideology, both totalitarian and fascist and its tenets run in direct confrontation with the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. ALL democracies will forever be a target of this sinister cult of death.

  • davarino

    So we are at war with islam. Its not a religion of peace. It does seek to subjugate the world. We need to stop educating them and giving them aid. We need to stop buy their oil. We need to stop kissing their azz, and we need to let them destroy themselves by quarantining them in their own back water country.

    • jacob

      Well said, DAVARINO ..!!!

      Now go ahead and tell it to the man you probably helped place in the White
      House on account of his jump off the frying pan and into the fire his "CHANGE"

      Because if you expect him to do anything about, just remember his apologizing to
      the Muslim world at the CAIRO conference for the (to him) American "misdeeds"
      to the Muslim world;

      How about his genuflexing to the Keeper of the Faith, the Saudi king and least but
      not last, that America owes to Muslims to become independent…

      And to think he is running for reelection and might as well get it…..

    • not Aisha

      stop buying just the oil? how about not putting money in muslim slot machines? "We" call them fast food restaurant's, gas stations, convenience stores , liquor stores, major retail shoe stores, coffee shops, and on and on and on. I am saving a lot of money because I do not do shop these business's anymore. Muslims will not shop our stores unless no other choice is available. Oh, and they mostly only buy Honda, Toyota, and Nissan SUV's (their camels) and heavily tint their windows. It is sad that they can't see how awful they are!! they think with one brain!!

      • not Aisha

        Zuhdi Zasser is the only moderate muslim I know of and I know five muslim familys' and one of them VERY WELL!! I think with a little pushing Zuhdi will leave that ideology that poses as a religion!!

      • davarino

        I agree. We have to stop funding these knuckleheads with our own money

  • Asher

    I don't believe there are moderate muslims. Some are not Jihadists and live peaceful lives, but they generally go with the flow and cohersing from Radicals.

    • Syed

      not just some but billions live in peace

      • Lee

        If a muslim nation the only way they live in peace is if they have killed all others practicing ay form of religion aside from islamic rot. Otherwise they bomb and burn their churches refuse to even allow them to repair them and not a chance of building new churches not of islamic faith. You lie Syed just another form of taqqya which is practised daily and is a religious lie which all muslims are allowed to practice in order to work their way into all societies and take over. The goial of islam is to either convert or enslave all and those who refuse to convert must pay the jhizzy and are 2nd class scitizens at most.
        You and your pedophile prophet are a sad sick polical sysm hiding behind the guise of a religion.

      • SpiritOf1683

        The only ones who live in peace are those who have no choice but to eke out a living by tending crops etc, otherwise they and their families would starve.

  • jacob

    The sole mention of "MODERATE" Muslims makes my blood boil…


    Once again, in YOSHIRO SAGAMORI words in the Jerusalem Post long ago :



  • tanstaafl

    Killing infidels is halal in Islam. In fact, the prophet Mohammed once remarked – "I have become victorious through terror." The history of Islam is simply the history of Jihad.

  • Marty

    islam is not moderate and cannot be reformed. Its ideology lauds brutality and violence. Its mission is to destroy western civilization, democracy, and modernity. Once sharia law is installed, surviving non-muslims will be reduced to dhimmitude and perpetual misery.

  • BS77

    Hirsi Ali spoke out and wrote two incredible books (Infidel and Nomad).

    • not aisha

      there are many, many books by ex muslims. read those by Nonie Darwish, Wafa Sultan, Mark Gabriel, Ali Sina and many more. Read Bay Ye'or, Brigitte Gabriel, Robert Spencer, Walid Shoebat (a former pipe bomber of Jew's) God see's into some muslims hearts and he allows them to understand the real Islam. It all goes back to the prophecy in the Bible. Ishmael (son of Abrahim and his Arab slave concubine) God would not make a covenant with Ishmael. He said Ishmael will always be a wild man and his hand will always be against others and their hands will always be against him and that Ishmael will live by the sword and die by the sword. Doesn't that explain everything?? The descendants of Ishmael cannot do anything but kill- IT IS THEIR FATE !! You often hear muslims saying that Jews and Christians have the covenant. Big jealousy there and also that the Jewish tribe in Yathrib (now Medina) would not have anything to do with Muhammad when he asked them to join his religion. Those brave Jewish men opted to have their heads sliced off, around 800 of them and hundreds of them by the one the muslims call their prophet.

    show me one peaceful muslim nation. You cannot because such does not exist. Show me one muslim who believes all men are created equal regardless of ethnicity or religion.
    You cannot and if so many are against this terrorism then why so few spekaing against it?

    • trickyblain

      Can you show us one peaceful "Christian" nation?

      • Ghostwriter

        Trickyblain,can you show one instance in which a Muslim has condemned a terrorist attack upon America or Americans? I'd love to know.

      • Ghostwriter

        Trickyblain,can you show one instance of a Muslim condemning a terrorist attack on America or Americans? I'd really like to know.

      • Lee

        I can show you a nation that first tries to talk peacefully with the enemy then when all else fails after embargo after embargo and such from the U.N. ( something we should never have joined and when we do rise up to take our nation back will probably be sent in to control and shoot us like so many other countries etc.) and other peace seeking nations then resorts to military action. The United States of America. Yes some of what our government is doing and has done is outright wrong but it is nothing compared to the evil that is islam and hides behind the guise of a religion that was founded by a pedophilistic murderer.
        Any parent who accepts islam is a sick parent just in the knowing that it's so called prophet was an outright sick pedophile who married at 6 and supposedly waited till she was a whole mature age of nine to first have seual relations with her.
        Is this what you want for your child? If so then i guess you belong in the sickness disguised as a religion that is called islam.

      • vladdy

        There are no Christian nations in the sense that there are muslim nations. You see, they have this thing called sharia that intermixes "faith" and government.

          dude, i am an atheist, and i view christians as annoying ignorant pests. muslims are murderous vile sworn enemies. i can stand annoying ignorant pests. i am ready to join in with any coalition of nonmuslims that are willing to exterminate all muslims and let islam join zeusism, thorism, or jujpiterism on the trashheap of history. anyone like you that criticizes anyone that is against islam is just stupid. and suicidal.

          • Foolster41

            Huh? Calm down. He didn't insult all atheists at all. He said he disliked "militant atheists", that is, atheists who irrationally hate Chrsitianity to the extent of using Tu Quo Que comparisons between Christianity and Islam whenever Islam is criticized (as trickybrain did above).

          • Foolster41

            Also, I can't say I agree with "eliminate all muslims" as that sounds a tad militaristic. The goal is to educate people about the truth of Islam, and to make them turn from it.

    Perhaps no Muslims speak up (ie: criticize) because that would make them bad Muslims.
    Well, according to Mohammad…

    From the Ahadith of Bukhari —

    Volume 1, Book 2, Number 10:
    Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:
    The Prophet said, "A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands. And a Muhajir (emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons) all what Allah has forbidden."

    Volume 1, Book 2, Number 11:
    Narrated Abu Musa:
    Some people asked Allah's Apostle, "Whose Islam is the best? i.e. (Who is a very good Muslim)?" He replied, "One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands."

    Cut and pasted directly; I did not add the words in parenthesis.

    Silent, uncritical Muslims are just doing what Mohammad told them to, some 1375 years ago.
    And as the Koran says, repeatedly, obeying Mohammad is obeying Allah. ;)

  • LindaRivera

    In committing barbaric atrocities and ruthlessly mass murdering non-Muslim innocents, Muslims are imitating founder of Islam, huge slave trader, Mohammad; regarded as the perfect man and role model by Muslims who follow their religion.

    The god of Islam is the complete opposite of our Merciful, Glorious G-D – the Holy One, Creator of the Universe, whose Biblical requirement for all humanity is KINDNESS:

    Bible, Micah 6:8 And what does the L-RD require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your G-D.

  • Flush your Mohamed

    Muzlims are quiet because as my friends in egypt stated, when their turn comes they all want our "stuff". All muzlims are thieves and rapists at heart. That is a fact ou r they would not choose to be muzlim. Face the fact and it is extremely understandable why they say nothing. They all want to rape babies, have sex slaves, or at least access to sex slaves. They all would steal before earning. Why work when you can muredr your neighbor and just take his widescreen. Why masturbate when you can rape a 6 year old, (legal age now in some sharia countries).
    You voted in the muzlim bastard now live with the results.

  • jonmc

    The 17,000 terrorist attacks are a gross under-estimate if anything!
    Last year (2010) alone, Pakistan – yeah I know! – said that it suffered 10,000 such attacks.
    Even allowing for inflation of the figures ("oh we're the worst sufferers from the Islamists we've been supporting, surely you should be sympathetic to the BIGGEST victims of those we've been sheltering") that suggests that ROP are missing many.
    To be fair, I KNOW that they ensure that they can verify every attack as terror rather than criminal (not every murder in Pakistan is based in Islamist terror! for instance) and that they freely admit to not catching all the attacks that do take place.
    I'm not having a "go" at the author here, but I wish that it were ONLY "over 17,000 attacks" (if you see what I mean).
    Unfortunately it would be better to write: "at the absolute minimum, the so-called “Religion of Peace” has racked up over 17,000 deadly attacks."

  • Ghostwriter

    All these attacks on innocents and Muslims continue to wonder why many Americans continue to have such a negative view of their religion. Unfortunately,it's the Muslim terrorist's brutallity and other Muslims refusal to condemn those acts feed that negative perception.

  • BobSmith101

    Would you wear a T-shirt with a Mohammad cartoon printed on it?

    You might in Montana. Don’t try it in Mecca.


    Because, Islam trains a small number of its most devout believers it’s OK to kill. And Islamic killers have been trained to kill anyone who insults Allah and/or Mohammad.

    In Montana you’d have a good chance none of these Islamic killers would see you.

    In Mecca you wouldn’t last five minutes. One of Islam’s killers would come from out of nowhere and kill you. It is that simple.

    Gratifying for most of us, I'm sure, to see that so many people ARE waking up to the threat. I'm sure a lot of you, as I did, became involved in studying islam after 9-11 and was shocked to find out the truth. We've waited for ten years now — even five years ago, you were still hearing that ROP BS — and it seems that more and more are catching on. The slowest group seems to be the college kids who see their "muslim student organization" protest against the "apartheid state" of Israel and hear junk from their professors. They'll still try to answer you with that "Hey, Christians are just as bad" rot.

    "Moderate Muslim" is the epitome of an oxymoron!

  • mad_mad_world

    islam is a sick disgusting cult that was perpetrated upon mankind by a most repulsive man-beast called moe-ham-mad. We should outlaw the practice and muslim leaders should be treated like the terrorists that they are. All assets and earnings from muslim groups should be confiscated as ill gotten booty, not unlike racketeering.

  • curmudgeon

    if the united states were really engaged in a war on terror, the most effective policy would be to exterminate muslims wherever we find them, particularly those who are already in our country, here in force with the intention of conquering us and forcing sharia on us. unfortunately, our beloved government is not at all interested in conducting a war on terror. instead, our beloved government just cannot import enough "peaceful" murderous subversive conquering muslims. with a treasonous government, how can we possibly sufrvive?

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Now, it is admittedly true that some Muslim groups have come forward to denounce Islamic terror. But for every Muslim or Muslim group that publicly comes forward, many others choose not to.

    Actually, that is incorrect, as the Muslim groups that come forward do so only to deceive gullible subhuman unbelievers. However, if the shoe was on the other foot and they dominated the world instead of the West, they would come forward only to praise Islamic terrorist attacks. Moreover, virtually all Muslims are jihadists themselves, they are just stealth and deceptive non-violent jihadists as opposed to the relatively few violent jihadists.
