Muslim condemnations of London bombing… [updated]

I had hoped to create a list of Muslim organizations and individuals condemning the London bombing, because every time something like this happens, there are voices that say violence is an intrinsic part of the Islamic tradition, and claim that because no Muslims have denounced the violence, it must be true. However, Muslims are constantly denouncing violence, but we are speaking from soap boxes. The fringe of humanity (these terrorists are the fringe of humanity, not just Islam) will always be louder. While gathering my material, several other sites have compiled these condemnations, including non-English material. I am linking to those sites, and will try to keep this article as updated as I can. Please send as many as you can my way, or post in comments.

Juan Cole (includes the mythbuster that no Muslim has condemned OBL. Many a Muslim has denounced Osama, including major religious figures.)

Juan Cole 2 (On London specifically.)

Dervish Dua (1, 2)

Al-Muhajabah (continues, great resource list on condemning terrorism in general)

Global Voices (1, 2)

BritishAsian (personal note)

  1. Good idea, i think that people should know that terrorism and islam doest not make one and that islam preaches peace .
    People indulging in acts of terror fall in the category of selfish individuals who care for only themselves and give human life little or no importance.

  2. Just curious if there are any protesters taking to the streets in the Muslim countries surrounding Sudan. I’ve heard alot about America being expected to step in and stop the massacre in Sudan, but how about the neighboring Muslim countries? Where is the banner of unity under Islam. It is very disturbing no country has quesitoned the uninvolvement of Iran or Syria or even Eygyt, right next door. It seems that the Muslims of these countries are so consumed with being muslim, that they have forgotten their neighbors. How about the Red Cross, do any of these nations step out to help a world right next door to them. Wouldn’t it be more of a responsibilty of an Islamic country to take action, rather than America. Come on, show us how wonderful you are.
