    As many of you know during the war in iraq and even afghanistan there was a tremendous amount of anger in the british muslim community. There doesn't seem to be that kind of anger over syria. Why is that so?

    A lot of them are. Many of the Muslims I know are angry over what is happening in Syria and have been spending time and money arranging aid for the refugees.

    The Muslims I know seem dispirited and have become desensitized to global violence of any kind. There is one local outspoken leader I know of in Birmingham however - who urges the sending of charity. He seems to condemn both Assad and the rebels and only preaches about Syria out of his human and muslim duty to help those in need. Other than that, he seems pretty neutral
