Many commentators and bloggers, including this one, have criticized Muslim leaders in this country for not condemning Islamofascism in no uncertain terms. Islamist apologists have responded by saying, “We have, we have.” But anyone who consumes news knows that the number of Muslim leaders who have done so forcefully are almost non-existent.
Now comes information via a Pew Research study that our criticism has been well-placed. A new poll shows that most Mulsims actually agree with us:
The Pew study found that six in 10 U.S.-born Muslims faulted Islamic leaders for not speaking out against extremism, as did 43 percent of Muslim immigrants.
The usual suspects were quick out of the block to say we, and half of all Muslims in the country, are simply mistaken:
Officials with Muslim advocacy groups say that they have spoken out repeatedly against extremists but that the American public, including Muslims, often doesn’t hear about it.
Sure, because the news media is arrayed against Muslims. Riiight.
