Elephant in the Islamic living room

I was watching an old episode of the “West Wing” the other day. While speaking to a gathering of high school kids, Sam Seaborne made the following comparison of Islamic extremism to mainstream Islam: He said, “Islamic extremism is to Islam as the Ku Klux Klan is to Christianity.”

While that’s essentially true, speaking out against the maniacal murderers that makeup Islamic extremist groups can be worth one’s life. And that’s why the comments an English Muslim woman made after the Manchester terrorist attack were so remarkable and courageous.

British Muslim Woman Gets Real on National TV: ‘Terrorism Is…Being Imported Right Under Our Noses’

A British Muslim woman drew applause from her fellow audience members when she said during a BBC talk show that all Saudi-financed mosques in England should be temporarily shut down — and then added that “terrorism is also being imported right under our noses.”

The woman’s comments during BBC Question Time on Thursday came just days after a deadly terrorist attack took at least 22 lives outside a Manchester concert hall and for which the Islamic State has claimed responsibility.

“I am a British Muslim, and I am very proud of my heritage, but I am also a realist and there is an elephant in the room here and unfortunately … there is an issue with regards to radicalization and extremism that does exist within our community,” the woman said, adding that it’s something “we have to deal with.”

The body of a Catholic priest from Baltimore, whose sexual assaults on teenage girls in the 1960s and 1970s caused the Archdiocese of Baltimore to pay out a dozen settlements last year, has been exhumed by Baltimore County police still trying to solve the 1969 slaying of Sister Catherine Ann Cesnik, police said Thursday.
