Isn't it strange that Muslims around the world have been so silent about Islamic extremists' barbarous acts in Algeria and Afghanistan, when they are quick to denounce such acts of violence as those carried out against Bosnians in the former Yugoslavia? Regular reports on the massacres of women and children in Algeria, and the insane violence by the Taleban in Afghanistan are horrendous enough for the civilised world.

What is disgusting is the absence of censure from people of that religion.
