Sure, Now They're Protesting ... But Why?

Via Instapundit I read an article "Al Qaeda on defensive as bombs begin to backfire". My initial reaction on seeing the headline, "What took them so long, do only Muslim deaths count?"

The article characterizes the protesters as moderate Muslims.

As moderate Muslims dare to protest at daily death tolls, even the prospect of one of Osama bin Laden's most feared cohorts, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, being handed over is being discussed.
So what did one of these "moderate Muslims" have to say.
"We came to support our nation and our unity," said Ibrahim Haniya, 22, who marched with a group of friends. "These bombers didn't differentiate between Muslims, Christians or Jews. They were against the world."
Oh, I see, it's OK to target and murder innocent Christians and Jews as long as no innocent Muslims are killed.
