Future generations will look back on 2014 with wonder. Throughout Africa and the Middle East thousands of Muslims are engaged in the process of murdering other Muslims while leadership of Muslim societies remains remarkably silent about this carnage. In Nigeria, the nut case Boko Haram continues to sweep into Muslim villages, and either murder every Muslim in sight or they kill the men and gather up women to be used as sex slaves. Has anyone seen a single outburst in any Muslim nation about this murder of Muslims? Oh, in Pakistan a mob went wild and murdered three Muslims because they were not the right kind of Muslim. Just about every day in Iraq, hundreds are shot to death by fellow Muslims, but silence reigns from al-Ahram university. Where are Muslim clerics like Christian Martin Luther King who risked his life in order to aid fellow black Christians? Syria is a monstrosity of murder by Muslims against Muslims and no leader in any Muslim society rises to seek the end of this slaughter of Muslims. According to Muslim columnist, Harron Siddiqui: “Muslims are being killed by fellow Muslims in Syria, Iraq, Pakistan and Nigeria in far greater numbers(than those in Gaza). Muslim blood is cheap.
Perhaps, the lack of an outraged response from Muslim leaders throughout the world enables the Israel government to continue its policy of wiping out Hamas. Ironically, killing 1500 Muslims in Gaza is much fewer than have been killed in Iraq or Syria on any week of the year. I guess Mr. Siddiqui is right-Muslim blood is cheap. If this carnage is to end, it should begin with organization of Muslim clerics who would march into Syria or Iraq or into Gaza and demand a ceasefire in the killing of Muslims. If they do not take action, then who will?
