Found this on the Drudge Report. Sound like someone is coming to their senses. React to it as you will.

Muslim group takes responsibility for 9-11: 'We are so sorry'

We Are So Sorry for 9-11
This September 11 marks the third unforgettable anniversary of the worst mass murder in American history.

After September 11, many in the Muslim world chose denial and hallucination rather than face up to the sad fact that Muslims perpetrated the 9-11 terrorist acts and that we have an enormous problem with extremism and support for terrorism. Many Muslims, including religious leaders, and “intellectuals” blamed 9-11 on a Jewish conspiracy and went as far as fabricating a tale that 4000 Jews did not show up for work in the World Trade Center on 9-11. Yet others blamed 9-11 on an American right wing conspiracy or the U.S. Government which allegedly wanted an excuse to invade Iraq and “steal” Iraqi oil.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As to apologizing, we will no longer wait for our religious leaders and "intellectuals" to do the right thing. Instead, we will start by apologizing for 9-11 . . .
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After numerous admissions of guilt by Bin Laden and numerous corroborating admissions by captured top level Al-Qaida operatives, we wonder, does the Muslim leadership have the dignity and courage to apologize for 9-11?
If not 9-11, will we apologize for the murder of school children in Russia?

If not Russia, will we apologize for the train bombings in Madrid, Spain?

If not Spain, will we apologize for suicide bombings in buses, restaurants and other public places?

If not suicide bombings, will we apologize for the barbaric beheadings of human beings?

If not beheadings, will we apologize for the rape and murder of thousands of innocent people in Darfour?

If not Darfour, will we apologize for the blowing up of two Russian planes by Muslim women?

What will we apologize for?

What will it take for Muslims to realize that those who commit mass murder in the name of Islam are not just a few fringe elements?

What will it take for Muslims to realize that we are facing a crisis that is more deadly than the Aids epidemic?

What will it take for Muslims to realize that there is a large evil movement that is turning what was a peaceful religion into a cult?

Will Muslims wake up before it is too late? Or will we continue blaming the Jews and an imaginary Jewish conspiracy? The blaming of all Muslim problems on Jews is a cancer that is destroying Muslim society from within and it must stop.

Muslims must look inward and put a stop to many of our religious leaders who spend most of their sermons teaching hatred, intolerance and violent jihad. We should not be afraid to admit that as Muslims we have a problem with violent extremism. We should not be afraid to admit that so many of our religious leaders belong behind bars and not behind a pulpit.

Only moderate Muslims can challenge and defeat extremist Muslims. We can no longer afford to be silent. If we remain silent to the extremism within our community then we should not expect anyone to listen to us when we complain of stereotyping and discrimination by non-Muslims; we should not be surprised when the world treats all of us as terrorists; we should not be surprised when we are profiled at airports.

Simply put, not only do Muslims need to join the war against terror, we need to take the lead in this war.

As to apologizing, we will no longer wait for our religious leaders and “intellectuals” to do the right thing. Instead, we will start by apologizing for 9-11.

We are so sorry that 3000 people were murdered in our name. We will never forget the sight of people jumping from two of the highest buildings in the world hoping against hope that if they moved their arms fast enough that they may fly and survive a certain death from burning.

We are sorry for blaming 9-11 on a Jewish or right wing conspiracy.

We are so sorry for the murder of more than three hundred school children and adults in Russia.

We are so sorry for the murder of train passengers in Spain.

We are so sorry for all the victims of suicide bombings. We are so sorry for the beheadings, abductions, rapes, violent Jihad and all the atrocities committed by Muslims around the world.

We are so sorry for a religious education that raised killers rather than train people to do good in the world. We are sorry that we did not take the time to teach our children tolerance and respect for other people.

We are so sorry for not rising up against the dictators who have ruled the Muslim world for decades.

We are so sorry for allowing corruption to spread so fast and so deep in the Muslim world that many of our youth lost hope.

We are so sorry for allowing our religious leaders to relegate women to the status of forth class citizens at best and sub-humans at worse.

We are so sorry.

When you understand that religion is religion and not a form of government you may have taken your first step.

Until then, Until I see good muslims killing bad muslims I'll have to deduct that all muslims are bad muslims.

Then when I see good muslims killing bad muslims without the pressure of christians trying to kill all muslims then you may have the right to say you are sorry.

Until then, beings you haven't given a hoot for about 13 centuries, I vote to let God do his job of sorting out who is right when all the souls go see him.

Well, I guess it's up to me to offer a differing opinion from the others.

Muslims are like any other bunch of folks, they got their good folks, which are the only ones I've met, and they got their bad folks, which are the ones you hear about in the paper. I'm reasonably confident that most Muslims are in the good folks category, and it's that bunch that made that statement. Unfortunately, it's about like me apologising for the crimes of Ted Bundy. We're both white guys, about the same age and economic background. The difference is he was a killer and I ain't. I didn't ever meet Ted, though, so I couldn't have turned him over to the cops, any more than the good Muslim folks can turn over the radicals. They just don't know the radicals, 'cause they don't hang out with that sort of people.

So I welcome their statement, but I don't think it makes much of a difference, since those folks weren't the problem in the first place.

Empty, meaningless words.In my view, the balance has not yet been struck. Maybe a sincere, viewable,public execution of these baby killers might be a good start.

Then hand over bin laden.

...or better yet, turn the radicals in your community over to authorities here so that they can be identified and prevented from committing further violence.
