Calling Ben Affleck

Here's what your "moderate" Muslims think, Benny:

"When you ask Muslims to condemn or denounce heinous actions, ideologies or groups," argues one Muslim writer, “what you’re saying is that you don’t trust any Muslim."

If I condemn ISIS, I am – in essence – condemning myself: I am condemning myself and my communities to the continuation of the never-ending onslaught of suspicion, dehumanization and interrogation that is far from unique to us (especially when living as minorities) but is the most public.

When I am watching TV and I see pictures of ISIS fighters, I don't feel any relation to them, I don't feel any connection to their theology. I want Muslims to get to the point where we see an act of terror and don't have to think, "How will I get blamed?"

I was about to write up my own rebuttal, but the first commenter at the link above did it for me perfectly:

Isn't it funny, "Huffington Post" provides a rationale for some Muslims who do not condemn "radical" Islam, yet as a white, conservative, Christian, heterosexual, legal, American, I'm made to feel by the Left that I have to apologize for everything perpetrated by white, conservative, Christian, heterosexual, legal, Americans going back hundreds of years!
