And if you work and have friends among Muslims, you must know that almost all of them find terrorism repugnant. My point was that you can't expect all of them to put their lives on their line as Salman Taseer did.

In Egypt, after the Coptic Christian massacre, moderate Muslims did just that. They formed a human shield around a church to allow mass to be celebrated.

Nothing prevents "almost all" Muslims who find terrorism in Pakistan repugnant doing exactly the same to stop a Christian woman being executed for "blasphemy".

Let's see if they do so, shall we?
