I think it is safe to assume there was some sort of explosive decompression, whether its because of a bomb, missile, or some sort of dramatic mechanical failure. If there was a hijacking, or pilots

Much likely than a technical fault or a bomb, but not impossible.
I think it is safe to assume this was a dramatic incident; the plane was brought down rapidly, whether its by a bomb, missile, or mechanical failure is unclear. The distress call seams to suggest that there was time and an attempt to save the aircraft by the pilots. But it clearly was not a controlled ditch because the data available doesn't show a relatively gradual decent.

Then why don't the majority of the followers of that faith roundly-denounce the terrorists? Why don't "peaceful" Imams rise up and shout down the terrorists? Why don't the few that even will say anything provide anything more than PR lip-service?
Every Muslim I know personally has explicitly denounced these acts and these groups actions, repeatedly. It's only the media which seems to perpetuate/insinuate that the majority of Muslims, specifically in western countries, are hate-filled and agree with or condone there heinous acts of terrorism. As others have stated, more Muslims have been victims of these acts than any other group; if today this plane crash turns out to be a terrorist attract, more than likely the majority of the victims will be Muslims.
What do you want normal Muslims to do? Buy a loud speaker and take to the streets yelling that they denounce terrorist acts and groups every time something like this happens? Most of the Muslims I know Canada are hard workers that just want to live a normal life and earn enough money to feed their family, and send their kids to college.
