‘Why Don’t Moderate Muslims Condemn Terrorism?’ – They Do.
10 January 2015
Every time an extremist who is Muslim commits an act of terrorism, people ask where the moderate Muslim voices condemning violence are.

Lebanon observed a day of mourning Friday for 43 people killed in a a pair of suicide bombings that rocked the southern Beirut working-class suburb of Bourj el-Barajneh on Thursday evening. The savage bombings, which targeted a busy commercial and residential street at the peak of evening rush hour, also left at least another 239 people wounded, according to the Lebanese Health Ministry, and the death toll is expected to rise. The first bomb was detonated outside the entrance to a school. The street surrounding it was filled with families gathering after the end of the workday. The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack, which included a third suicide bomber who was killed in the blasts before he could detonate his explosives. It was the bloodiest attack that has been seen in Lebanon since the end of its 15-year civil war in 1990: here.
