Cleric killed in Gaza after plea for calm

I am always looking for examples of some Mideast Mohammedan who is actually in favor of peace. Here is the latest:
GAZA (Reuters) - Unidentified gunmen shot dead a Muslim cleric after he delivered a sermon in the Gaza Strip on Friday calling for an end to fierce factional fighting between Hamas and Fatah, hospital officials and local residents said. ...

Brushing aside Haniyeh's plea for calm, Fatah issued a statement in Gaza: "Blood for blood and aggression for aggression ... and all the sons of the movement should retaliate to each aggression openly."

The cleric, who was in a car when the gunmen opened fire, was not affiliated to any faction. No group claimed responsibility for the shooting, which occurred after prayers at a mosque in the Maghazi refugee camp.
Former pop music star Cat Stevens claims to be an example, but he refuses to denounce terrorist Mohammedan organizations like Hamas. I don't know how he can be an advocate for peace, and not profess any opinion on the suicide bombers and other terrorists who are killing innocent civilians. Maybe he just doesn't want to get killed himself.
