I was shocked to hear this news ... If this was done in the name of Islam, by extremists I wan't to hear the voices of the Muslim moderates, especially their imams and people of influence in Muslim societies ... for instance the royal families of countries like Morocco and Jordan, the Sheiks of the Arab Emirates, the presidents and other community leaders in Muslim countries like of Indonesia, Malaysia and Pakistan, to come out immediately and loud and clear in every country where Muslims live to condemn this heinous cowardly act and point out that this is totally unacceptable and that it is not honoring their religion. I want to see them on all forms of the media including the electronic media telling them that there is no honor in what they are doing ...they are not heroes , they are not martyrs ... just brainwashed murderers.
Sadly on each previous instances of mindless terrorism their silence has been deafening.
My sincere condolences to you, to your country and to everyone in the world who believe in the importance of freedom of expression and ideas.
