Leadership: Islam and the Truth



p> December 6, 2007: Many Moslem leaders simply dismiss reports of the Islamic violence. Despite statistics showing Islamic militants instigating most of the religion based violence in the world, many prominent Moslem religious and secular leaders dismiss the idea that Islamic militants could be responsible. Even Moslem leaders who admit to the facts in English, change their outlook when speaking to their constituencies. The basic line is that Islam is under attack, and any violence by Moslems is defensive, in order to protect their religion and way of life. Islamic terrorism is dismissed as exaggerated and, where it does exist, simply the result of Moslems responding to oppression. This belief in victimization by the infidel (non-Moslem) world is a major factor in the continued popular support of Islamic terrorism. That support only falters among Moslems who have themselves been victims of that violence. And even that tends to be temporary. Take away the Islamic terrorists, and people tend to forget reality real quick.
