How the civilized can remain silent?

I was indeed saddened at the death of the beheaded journalist, James Foley,at hands of a cruel, inhuman, barbaric and rampant groups behead human beings like a sheep. It is total absurd to remain silent in our century while such groups terrorize the whole world by killing innocent people who have nothing to do with the conflict ISIS raging the war in the middle east.As the great genius, Albert Einstein said once, " it is not because of the evil people that the world is unsafe to live but because the good people do not do what they have to do."
