Yup, it’s been quite a banner couple of weeks for American Muslims…
Oct 21: Feds charge Muslim man in Massachusetts with plotting to kill two prominent politicians and shoot up a mall.
Nov 2: Young woman who was run over by her own Muslim father for being too “Westernized” dies of her injuries in Atlanta. Oops.
Nov 5: Offended American Muslim Army M.D. (American taxpayers paid for his education) kills 13 and wounds 30. Seems that he could tolerate the military policy for six years while he earned his degree, but lost it when he was going to be deployed overseas.
Does anyone see a lethal pattern of pettiness and arrogance?
Does anyone wonder why Methodist Dick Cheney didn’t run over his own daughter when she came out of the (gasp) gay closet?
Or why anaesthesiologist Capt. Mary Hanna didn’t decide to stage a massacre at her Army base because she had a resurgence of her Coptic Christian faith just before being deployed?
Is there a double standard here? Do certain religions have a tendency to behave in a bit more culturally mature fashion? Do I really need to be asking these questions?
Yes, it’s been one hell of a fortnight for American Muslims. And unless there is an outpouring of condemnation from Muslims in American for this kind of barbarism (and the actions to back up that talk), they will have proven themselves to be not a religion of peace, but rather a primitive, misogynistic cult of savagery. No more, no less.
