Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

We're such idiots.

The Guardian has this article on the death of a muslim man in England who was set upon by a gang of youths. (Hat tip Drudge). The police are calling the incident race related, but the muslim community isn't buying it.

Azad Ali, who chairs the Muslim Safety Forum, said: "You can't class this as racist, there was no racist abuse shouted at him, it was Islamophobic.

I agree. It was motivated by the man's religion, or what the youths perceived his religion to be. But "Islamophobic?" That's rich, coming from a man who's religion just motivated four men to blow up the mass transit system of London, killing 50+ people and injuring hundreds. Why don't we hear him calling that Judeo-Christianophobic?

Like clods, we bend over backwards to make the distinction between those muslims who use Islam as a justification for murder and those who don't. Yet, we never hear muslims make that distinction, nor do we hear them really condemn the actions of those who murder.

"It is good the police have made arrests. We are disappointed that they have misclassified it, especially after all the advice to be more alert to Islamophobic hate crime."
Azad Ali will have to forgive the Nottingham police for not being more alert to Islamophobic hate crimes. You see, they are currently busy trying to stop the slaughter of innocents by muslimes.
