Moderate Canadian Muslim community...

Seems to be keeping an extremely low profile this holiday season...

Ms. Bhutto had not yet received a proper burial before the attacks on her character started appearing. The vice-president of the Canadian Arab Federation circulated an article lambasting Ms. Bhutto, mocking her as stooge of the West.

If attempts by Islamic writers to disparage Benazir Bhutto were distasteful, the conspicuous silence of Canada's Islamic organizations was equally disturbing. Seventy-two hours after the news of her assassination, neither the Canadian Islamic Congress nor its cousin CAIR-Can had uttered a word on the subject.
A rather informative article by way of DMB.

Bhutto was not a stooge of the west. She did know how to speak in a way that satified a western audience as she was partly educated in the west.

Not that surprising really, the self-appointed Muslim spokesmen only speak up when they are "offended" by something. Benazir Bhutto's assassination obviously does not fall into that category. Also, since this murder was not commited by a kafir, as far as we know, there is no political or social gain to be had by pulling out the "we find that offensive " card. No point in playing to the cameras and pretending.

I'm not sure there is such a thing as the "Moderate Canadian Muslim community". Events like the deafening silence surrounding Bhutto's assassination seem to point to two groups within the community; the noisy extremist hotheads and the silent, closet extremists who will just let the hotheads do their thing and see where the chips fall, hedging their bets by not confronting or publicly dressing down the more extremist element of the community.
