    I don't recall such a cry for condemnation towards Anders Breivik, for Eliot Rodger, for the NAACP bombing 24 hours before the Paris attacks. A non-muslim performs an act of terror and it's an unfortunate manifestation of societies failings to address issues such as mental health. Both these attacks and the Paris ones are absolutely terrible. Most muslims would agree, but collective guilt is not justifiable. The homogenization of islam that is occurring in our media and amongst us needs to stop.

    Moderate Muslim is a western term, no more no less.

    How so? I'm pretty sure Muslims all over the world distinguish themselves between liberal/conservative, moderate/extreme.

    Interesting. Can we apply this to tea partiers?
    Are tea party members beheading people/ murdering people. Links?

    Moderate Muslim is a term the west devised to describe Muslim who don't kill in the name of Islam. Sorry this makes you uncomfortable.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the West came up with the term "moderate Muslim." What is your point?
