A brave man writing ...

The New York Times > International > Middle East > School Siege in Russia Sparks Self-Criticism in Arab World
'It is a certain fact that not all Muslims are terrorists, but it is equally certain, and exceptionally painful, that almost all terrorists are Muslims,' Abdel Rahman al-Rashed, the general manager of the widely watched Al-Arabiya satellite television station wrote in one of the most striking of these commentaries.

These are brave commentators. Truth be told, of course, there have been many non-Muslim terrorists - even in recent years. Ireland, Spain, the US ....

Terrorism has pioneered new depravities recently -- when Muslims happened to have their dark time. The next set of terrorists (from failed nations in Africa?) may or may not be Muslim, but they will dig deeper yet.
