Who speaks for Islam in the name of peace?

After years of conflict and killing in the Middle East, Europe and now here, I would like to know who speaks for the nonviolent Muslims?

Have they a leadership or a voice that reaches the media? Do they fear reprisals by those whom they should castigate?

I keep a close watch on the news, both on television and in print, but I am unaware of anyone of that faith decrying the killings perpetrated by the region's radicals.

I wish they would speak up. Otherwise they run the risk of people dropping the word "radical" from the phrase "Muslim radicals" and painting the entire religion with the same brush.
