I thought this never happened? Somehow it won't be enough for some.

Canadian Muslim groups denounce violence, brace for backlash following Ottawa shooting

| Oct 23, 2014 | Last Updated: Oct 24, 2014 - 3:52 UTC

Representatives of major Canadian Muslim groups gathered in Ottawa today to reiterate their denunciation of terrorism in the name of Islam at a news conference in Ottawa, even as fear of harassment and violence grows in the Muslim-Canadian community.

“Our message to anyone who believes in violent extremist ideologies is that you have nothing to do with Islam,” said Ihsaan Gardee, the executive director of the National Council of Canadian Muslims and one of several speakers at Thursday’s event. “You have nothing to do with the noble principles of our faith, which categorically condemn the taking of innocent life.”

It won't. What's worse is I don't think Muslims should have to denounce this. It's like we have to take responsibility for something that we're not doing. Those monsters aren't who we are or what we're about.

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.

I 100% agree with this. You should not have to denounce wrong doing when you are not committing wrong doing nor condoning it. Unacceptable

What did you expect? For those that swore no Muslim ever denounces violence to be the better person and admit they were wrong? :rofl:

Did they issue a Fatwa?

Disagree 100%. If someone does something in the name of a large group of people, I think it is important that the organization denounce it if it is at total odds with their belief.

I,E, I think it is important for to denounce the WBC which is always being universally denounced by almost all mainstream groups in the USA

They aren't doing it in the name of a large group of people. They are doing it in the name of their own sick ideas. If they were doing it in the name of all Muslims, all Muslims would be over there fighting us and not going about their everyday normal lives.

That's what you choose to do. I do not think it is important to denounce something I do not agree with. This is what is wrong with society now. You should judge every individual based off of that individual's characteristics and not off of the characteristics being portrayed by some unknown moron that person is not even associated with.

Why do you think it's important to denounce the World Boxing Council?

No. It stands for the Wet Boxing Contest.
