What the World Needs More of

This person is a hero.

A British intelligence official has told CNN that the original information about a plot to down commercial jetliners in mid-Atlantic with explosives came from a tip from the Muslim community in Britain.

The official said the tip resulted from a person who had been concerned about the activities of an acquaintance after the July 7 terror attacks in London.

I’m sure there are some Muslims who will see this as a kind of treason. But if more people feel such a sense of responsibility to the wider world, they will save thousands of lives and, possibly, the credibility of their religion.

    The most troubling aspect of trying to remain tolerant and religiously inclusive is the Muslim community’s lack of scorn for the perpetrators of these terrorist acts.Is this their way of signalling to the rest of us that they applaud the mission of the terrorists? Just wondering.
