    I can't imagine why the news media hasn't covered this in greater frequency and with greater fanfare, leading off news broadcasts for example, or perhaps as an adjunct part of every report of a Militant Islamic Fundamentalist terrorism story.

    Would seem to me that doing so would have lead to far less anti-Muslim thought and actions, as if the media really cared about that, truth, honesty and integrity much.
    The fundamental media bias isn't political, it is financial. "Muslims on other side of the planet want peace" isn't a story that sells advertising space. Death and explosions do. i'd place blame on them, but we're the ones buying the product so it's not like we are blameless ourselves.

    There are over 1.7 billion Muslims in the world and you're impressed with a hashtag campaign saying "Not in my name"? How has any of these 'protests', if they are even worth of the term, helped? They are completely and absolutely ineffective.

    When Muslims protest cartoons they damage millions in property and murder people indiscriminately. These people are useless in stopping any Islamic violence spreading around the word. They're observers in all of this carnage, just like everyone else.

    Have you personally taken action against violent street gangs?

    Still, it's better than nothing.
    Its just for show.

    "Going too far", was burning the pilot. If they had beheaded him, it wouldn't be as big a deal.

    Do we have law enforcement combatting street gangs?

Needs a hook.

    It happens every day. Every attack that these Islamic terrorists commit, there is mass condemnation. But unless you go looking for it, you aren't going to see it because OH MY GOD LOOK WHAT KATY PERRY WORE AT THE SUPERBOWL.
    There was a "mass" demonstrations, not just 'mass condemnation', in Jordan protesting the death of their pilot but that's about the only one with any substance attached. The rest are just photo ops.

    Re: In unison, Muslim clerics lash out against Islamic State

    I suspect what is upsetting these clerics is not that the jihadists committed another ghastly war crime by dousing a caged pilot with fuel and burning him alive in the name of Allah. No, I think what they're really outraged about is that lighting on fire is not the method prescribed by the official texts for executing captives of war. Bad enough that those two men accused of homosexual acts in Mosul recently were executed so incorrectly! Fine to kill them--obviously anyone accused of a thing so hateful to Allah deserves to die. But the ignorant jihadists in that case just shoved them off the roof of a tall building, even though shari'ah specifically calls for homosexuals to be stoned to death.

    This is terrible news for conservative Christians. Now they can't bash Muslims for not speaking against extremism. Oh, who am I kidding -- they'll still do it. And when they give Muslims credit, they do it in an accusatory manner (e.g. "Finally! It's about time!")

    No, we have a police firs=ce which does that. They arrest the guilty ones and send them to jail, but they are policed.

    Is this your subtle way of suggesting that Muslims should be better policed and some action taken against those Islamic rapists and murderers in the ME and Africa? If so, you should encourage Obama and other world leaders to participate in wiping them out, just as we do with any criminals.

    Why did it take this long for them to say something? It'll be a long time before we can't bash Muslims for doing nothing.
