crescent and starA longtime evangelical leader is calling on moderate Muslims in America to speak out against Jihadists. 

"It's time for the moderate Muslim community to stand up and separate themselves, and to help us identify the terrorists in their midst," says Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Land, Dr. Richard (SBC, ERLC)Land says Muslim-Americans he has talked to are fearful that if they speak up, they will be attacked by terrorists in their midst.

He points out that most of the people killed by jihadi terrorists are fellow Muslims who refuse to follow a "narrow and twisted" Interpretation of Islam.

"This would be like if the KKK claimed to be the only legitimate expression of the Christian faith," Land says. "And they said, If you disagree with us, we're going to kill you."
