I am sure that a good many Muslims would disagree -- I am also sure a good many Muslims would agree, and there's the rub. Of course we expect people to recoil and reject this savagery. That's a given. The problem is the Muslims who respect it, adhere to it, and believe in holy war in the cause of Islam. That is our problem. These arguments about peaceful Muslims are a distraction. The argument is irrelevant. No one has an issue with them.
Where are the Muslim protests against jihad and calls for a reformation in Islam (ie Vatican II)? The only demos I ever see by Muslims and their antifa SS army are violent protests against counter jihad groups like SIOE and EDL. Why is that?

On Newsnight tonight, Chaudhry said while the brutal attack on a serving soldier was shocking what the man covered in blood said about foreign policy explained what he did.

Presenter Kirsty Wark strongly disagreed with the statement, along with his fellow panelists from the Muslim community.
Shams Ad-Duha Muhammad, a director at Ebrahim College, said the vast majority of Muslims would strongly disagree with Chaudhry.
He said: "Why is not possible for us as Muslims that we cannot condemn what happened here and air our views regarding foreign policy?"

While Julie Siddiqi, Executive
Director at the Islamic Society of Britain, said there was 'absolute
condemnation' from every Muslim organisation.
She said: "I want to give my condolences to Lee Rigby's family.
"There is no justification for what we saw yesterday."
The man seen in the video had met Chaudhry before, and attended one of his demonstrations for anti-Western al-Muhajiroun organisation.

"You people will never be safe, remove your governments they don't care about you."
