    I hope it's more than lip service.

    I think they begin to understand that in order to keep their freedoms they will need to deal with this issue internally and quickly. Implicit agreement through silence is no longer acceptible and is effectively associating all Muslims with the extremists.

    As Zman says--a step in the right direction and one that people have been screaming for for years now. Let's see what happens in Great Britain.

    Hmmm. Does anyone recall a similar statement after 9-11? I don't.

    I'm with you on this angel.....until that sentence I was thinking "well, it's about time they starting renouncing the terrorists". Then I read this sentence.....

    Are there times when attacks DO have an Islamic justification?
