Muslim vs. Muslim

Here’s something I have been wondering about. Militant Muslims who carry out acts of terror often kill Muslims in the process. Why would the Muslim community of the world (militant or otherwise) tolerate that? The insurgents in Iraq are killing American service men and women, but they are also killing Iraqis who help them. Aren’t they implicitly saying that those Iraqis are not Muslims? They’re even attacking mosques. The examples of this could be multiplied.

Now in Indonesia the radicals are actually thinking about this. An interesting phrase in the article is “Some militants…want their jihad, or holy war, to focus on fighting Christians in certain regions of Indonesia rather than bombing Western targets where Muslims die, too”. What you have to remember, though, is that for many Muslims (especially outside the US) to be an American is to be a Christian. Still, the intention is chilling.
