Thatcher condemns Muslim leaders' response to terror attacks
Baroness Thatcher has criticised the response of Muslim leaders in Britain
over their response to the terror attacks in America.
The Conservative former prime minister told The Times that Muslim leaders
had not spoken out strongly enough about the September 11 atrocities.
Tony Blair and other British ministers have gone out of their way to
reassure Muslims that any action would not be directed at Islam but at the
terrorists responsible for the attacks in America.
"The people who brought down those towers were Muslims and Muslims must
stand up and say that is not the way of Islam," Lady Thatcher told the
"Passengers on those planes were told that they were going to die and
there were children on board. They must say that is disgraceful.
"I have not heard enough condemnation from Muslim priests."
Conservative Central Office has refused to comment on Lady Thatcher's
Muslim leaders expressed their sadness at the comments and said they had
immediately and unequivocally condemned the terrorist attacks.
Dr Ghayasuddin Siddiqui, leader of the Muslim Parliament, said: "I am very
sad and surprised that she has said this sort of thing. Coming from a
person like Baroness Thatcher it is very hurtful.
"People need to know that out of over 6,000 people who died in this
terrible incident, over 1,500 of them were Muslims. The Muslim community
has had to suffer twice - once when someone dear to them died, the second
time when people say things like this."

"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was
not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not
speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the
Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for
me, and there was no one left to speak for me." - Pastor Martin Niemoller
