Why don't those Muslims denounce terrorism?

Wrong question. A better question is:

Why isn't it reported when Muslims denounce terrorism?

This is from the UK:

That is of course the right question, but it's the answer that is disturbing.

What runs is what attracts viewers because news is now treated as somewhere between a business and a political tool. Contradicting the preconceptions of viewers often doesn't do the trick. This is probably true all over the world. It's true in Israel, in both directions. The international press in Israel supports the narrative that Israel persecutes blameless Palestinians and doesn't like to report stories that contradict that. They can't from outside of Israel because it's dangerous to cross local authorities there, when they get access. On the other hand, a few years ago an Israeli journalist traveled to Nablus on the West Bank, not the most pro-Israel neighborhood, in the immediate aftermath of the stabbing of most of a sleeping family in a West Bank settlement. The official Palestinian line had to do with the provocation of the settlements themselves. The journalist interviewed ordinary citizens in a shopping mall in Nablus, asking them their opinion of the stabbing. They universally condemned it, calling it a violation of Islam, and they did so on camera without hesitation. When the journalist brought his tapes back over the border and shared them on the air with an Israeli news program, the host of the program was shocked - it's exactly the opposite of what Israelis were/are led to believe. I don't know if the story got widespread coverage in Israel. It got zero coverage here. 

I've already posted about the fatwa issued last year against organizations that perpetrate terrorism in the name of Islam by roughly seventy thousand Muslim clerics, based around an enormous Sunni convention in India, which has one of the highest Muslim populations in the world. This was reported in the Times of India, but I don't think it made the American media at all. It goes hand in hand with the video above.

R&L, 1.7 billion followers of Islam fewer than 100,000 followers of ISIL and Al Qaeda and who gets the coverage?
