The massacre of thousands of Muslims in Syria by the government of President Bashar al-Assad continues without any let up in killing. An attempt by the Syrian Red Cross to bring supplies to the Baba Amr district in Homs was prevented even as reports emerged from the besieged area of house-to-house murder of men. Activists claim virtually any male over the age of 12 has been detained, dozens have been shot and there are even reports of 17 men being beheaded.
What is missing in this story is any evidence of protests by millions of Muslims in other nations. There is no delegation of imams in Syria. However, in Afghanistan and in other Muslim nations thousands are protesting because some copies of the Koran were burned. Is there something strange to this story-thousands of Muslims are being murdered, but the only major protest is over burning of religious books?
The silence of the imams is deafening.
