and yet you always hear comments such as "muslims don't speak out against terrorism!"

Here's a link to the story and a video

just goes to show you that we have a distorted view of the world when we say that there isn't anyone in the muslim world condeming terrorism

Sadly the people you are trying to reach are probably going to ignore this, as they ignore every bit of evidence that most Muslims oppose terrorism.

The want to believe that Muslims are terrorists or terrorist supporters, because they want an excuse for religious war and genocide - not coincidentally, exactly like Osama Bin Laden and his brethren do.

People see what they want to see, and hear what they want to hear.
Sad but true.

But you dont think there is a chance of them responding because the radical Muslims want to ban their music, personal lives, clothes, films, way of life, money, alcohol they drink etc etc etc.
Do you think that might have a teensy weensy bit to do with why they made the song?

I think there are plenty of good reasons for mainstream Muslims to distance themselves from the fanatics. I know a few Pakistani Muslims actually, and I could never reconcile the ones I've known what I hear of with the radical types, since they're all pretty relaxed.

I get the impression that most of the radicals in Pakistan come from more rural areas, and are seen as "hicks" - much like mainstream Americans see hardcore fundamentalist Bible Belt types.

that's exactly WHY they made the song. they want to get rid of their freedoms, they want to oppress the general populace. it isn' just THEIR music, the the right of everyone that listens to it to listen to it. not just their personal lives, everyone's personal life. not just their clothes, everyone's clothes. etc

then there are the tactics these people use to try to force their fundamentalist beliefs on people
