Washing their hands and averting their eyes

I fear that this piece by Osama Saeed, a spokesman for the Muslim Association of Britain, may represent mainstream British Muslim thinking about the subway bombings. Saeed disagrees with Tony Blair that the Muslim community needs to do more to combat terrorism. He argues, instead, that Blair needs to do more, by which he means appease radical Islam.
Saeed suggests that Islamic terrorism must be a symptom of a bad turn in western foreign policy, not “a part of Islam,” because it started only 12 years ago and not 1,400. In reality, as Winston Churchill would have understood, terrorism by Islamic extremists goes back much futher than 12 years. It is the way they fight the “infidel,” particularly those who stand in the way of their design of re-conquest.
