In the wake of the terrorist attacks in London, I can't help but despair at the ever-spiraling violence in our world today. And it pains me even more deeply that a significant portion of that violence occurs at the hands of Muslims in the name of Islam.
Of course, we have all condemned this latest attack in London. We have all stated that Islam is a religion of peace. We have all stated Islamic terror is neither sacred nor Islamic.
Yet, inevitably, I get a question from one -- or more than one -- reader which goes something like this: "Yeah, but what about the suffering of Muslims in Iraq? Isn't that also wrong? Why don't you condemn that?"
