“Moderate” Muslims Silent on Brussels Attack

Islamic groups fail to follow Jewish example, do not condemn terror attack

“Moderate” Islamic groups have remained silent on the murder of four people at the Brussels Jewish Museum on Saturday.

In contrast to Jewish groups, which have roundly denounced price tag vandalism in response to nearly every incident, as of this writing not one major Islamic organization in Europe, North America, Australia or the Middle East has condemned the yesterday’s murders in Brussels.

Non-Jewish leaders in Belgium spoke out immediately about the attack.  Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo said, “Our country and all Belgians, regardless of their language, their origin or their beliefs, are united together to face this despicable attack on a Jewish cultural center.”

The country’s Interior Minister, Joelle Milquet, spoke out immediately upon hearing about the attack. Belgium would  “apply to a maximum level of protection to Jewish sites,” he said.

While many left-wing activists, including the Haaretz daily, cautioned that “it is too early to jump to conclusions aver the identity of the shooter in Saturday’s terror attack,” even the left-wing mouthpiece was forced to conclude that “for now, the scenario of radical Muslim attackers… is most likely.”

But that does not seem to have moved “moderates” like Feisal Abdul Rauf, the author of “What’s Right With Islam” and spiritual leader of The Cordoba Initiative who gained notoriety by trying to build an Islamic prayer centre on the ruins of the World Trade Center. Rauf’s website fetters statements about violence at the Boston Marathon and condemning the burning of Christian homes in Pakistan. But the murder of Jews by Muslims appears to be off the Cordoba radar.

Same could be said for the Islamic Council of Victoria (Australia), despite the fact that leaders of that group have protested their depiction as radical terror sympathisers for many years. Other “moderate” groups that have yet to condemn the shooting include the Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe, Native European Muslims Assembly, the Islamic Center of Southern California, the Organization of the Islamic Conference

  1. Afraid to tell Israel will attack your museum to

  2. “Moderate” Muslims will all quietly celebrate the death of every single Jew as it’s in their DNA! They can’t help themselves! Do you ever, ever hear of extremists being shouted down by the so called moderates?? Never unless it is to fool the infidel to bring jihad closer! Trust them at your peril

  3. Gene Strong says:

    Muslims do not want peace with Israel
    Muslims want another holocaust.
    Stop . appeasement and concessions.remove all Muslims from Jerusalem and gaza. Oslo is dead. Shut down all liberal news media in israel..liberals are an insidious cancer in israel..

  4. silent means tacit agreement. they’re just one,lump together. .they are not moderate but moderators between terrorist and would be victims.

  5. Ken Kelso says:

    Guaranteed it was with Neo Nazis or Muslims behind this attack.

  6. Scott Soffen says:

    The moderate Muslim never coming condemnation means nothing anyway. Most Jews will always remain tolerant of Islam despite their blatant hypocrisy.

  7. Peter Looman says:

    In Israël verdedigen ze zich….

  8. Timmy Boone says:

    Theirs a word for the moderate muslim. And that word is spy…

  9. What is a “moderate” Muslim?

  10. Shame, but that’s

  11. ‘Moderate Muslims’….their the ones who hold the victim down while the ‘Extremist Muslims’ hacks/chops the victims head off…that’s correct isn’t not……

  12. shameful but not surprising – just surprised that it was even reported

  13. Silence means agreement!

  14. Robin Zinke says:

    moderate muslims!?!… what the Hell is that!!!… AIN’T NO SUCH THING!!!… THEY ALL WILL KILL YOU OR HAVE IT DONE, AND THAT BE THE SAMETHING!!!… You think I be wrong… Just tell a mod muslim the Truth about that demonic profit mohammed or Burn they holy book of lies of Lucifer there god… AND YOU’LL SEE A MOD muslim!!!…

  15. Are there moderate Muslims. Then speak up if you dare.

  16. Ken Reeves says:

    Sunni and shiite are all cowards,islam is a virus.

  17. How can anybody be considered moderate when they worship and adore a 7th century pedophile, killer and liar whose very existence created every terrorist act in the world for the past half century or more? Moderate Muslim equals garbage.

  18. I would love to hear Muslims expressing sirius for that horrible attack in Brussels

  19. They are useless too and coward.

  20. Edit Lipcs says:

    “moderate”???????????????

  21. They NEVER speak up, unless it is to whine about discrimination.

  22. Alan Kardon says:

    What is a "MODERATE MUSLIM"? Have not met one yet.

  23. Ron Grant says:

    The silence seems to be deafening from the Islamic world whenever there is such violence,wherever,whenever,whoever,however.Have they condemned the massacres in Northern Nigeria,the shameful abductions of Christian and Muslim schoolgirls,there?There are many reasons to condemn Israelis for their injustices to the Palestinians.And there are times when Muslims or Christians must be condemned for their attacks on Jews,Israeli or not.Now is one of those times.

  24. There’s no such thing. Killing jews is a central tenant of Islam.

  25. David Cutler says:

    Does their silence TRULY surprise anyone?? Look at what they are and always will be!! Kind of a foolish statement.

  33. Moderate Muslims (if you can find them) are usually silent, unless they can claim they are being insulted. When they insult or kill you can hear the silence.

  34. still looking for them. If there are any they are afraid to speak. The ones that kill jews can easily extend there hate
