Moderate Muslims must denounce violence


To the Editor:

In "Jewish groups step up efforts to combat anti-Muslim bigotry," Rabbi Saperstein said that “As Jews, we could be nowhere else today. We have been the quintessential victims of religious persecution …"

The history of the Muslims of the last 60 years has been quite violent. While I know there are many moderate Muslims in the world, they are quiet when it comes to Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and other violent Muslim terror groups. Also, a lot of moderate Muslims support terrorist groups with money, directly or through organizations.

Now is the time for moderate Muslims to stand up against Muslim terrorists like the Jews are standing up for the Muslims.
