So it's OK to kill civilians not against the war?

Interesting quote from Dr Azzam Tamimi, of the Muslim Association of Britain on the release of the video showing 7/7 suicide bomber Mohammad Sidique Khan. Tamimi says "He seems totally convinced that he ought to punish the British people indiscriminately because of their contribution to electing the Government. He doesn't take into consideration that the majority of people were against the war."

So would the suicide bombing have been OK in the eyes of Tamimi if a majority of people were in favour of the war? Also, presumably Tamimi would have found it acceptable if the suicide bombing had targetted civilians who supported the war in Iraq.

Just what is it with these Muslim leaders that stops them from unequivocably condeming terrorism?
