Muslim prejudice: part of the problem identified?

M. Sallah Echallaoui, president of the Belgian Muslim Council (Moslimexecutieve) just identified the main problem with prejudice against the Muslim community, but not as he intended. His observation is that the gap between Muslims and Non-Muslims in Belgium has grown. Let’s be honest: he is absolutely right. By his this very observation he has indirectly admitted his own failure to achieve his mission statement, which is to make sure his community is accurately represented in our society. Where is his offer to help fight against terrorism? How is the Muslim Council fighting radicalization? Aren’t you supposed to be part of the solution in stead of another observer of the problem? A simple gesture, M. Echallaoui, is al that is needed: reach out your hand.
