Trying to avoid a backlash here, a group of Muslim physicians who call St. Louis home felt compelled Friday to condemn the terrorist actions in Britain said to involve doctors and medical students.
Police overseas are questioning eight people — all thought to be Muslim foreigners who worked for Britain's National Health Service — in connection with foiled car bombs in London and an attack at Glasgow airport in Scotland.
In Britain Friday, an Iraqi-born doctor was charged in the Glasgow attack.
Muslim doctors here say they are trying to be more vocal in denouncing terrorism. They condemned the "crazies" who are "misguided" and did those acts.
"If we keep quiet, we become kind of a silent supporter of that, although we are not," said Dr. Ghazala Hayat, a professor of neurology at St. Louis University. "This is actually sickening and shocking to doctors, that this would happen." [Link]
