France Shooter Who Killed The Jews
“…Then the man was caught. His first name was funny for a neo-Nazi: Muhammad. In fact, he is a rabid Muslim, a jihadi who claims membership in al`Qaeda, a man caught fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan by US Forces, who under President Obama’s rules was shipped to France, where he went nuts and murdered people.
Instantly, the press ran out and tried to control this news. Ed West wrote for the Telegraph:
It’s easy to get it wrong because so many of the world’s varied extremists, whatever their motivation and however much they might hate each other, focus their anger and loathing on similar targets – the state, the city, modernity, capitalism, and the one group who embody all these complicating, unsettling changes in the minds of lonely, failed young men – Jews.
…as for the tragedy in France, it does not say anything about Islam, only of human nature and its potential for evil. All that matters ultimately is that three innocent children, a father and three young soldiers are now dead.
Ah but what if he really was a neo nazi right winger (a contradiction, but whatever)? Do you think Mr West might think his ideology was to blame then? Oh but he wasn’t alone. The Guardianran an editorial with these words:
The first to say what was on everyone’s mind was not the Socialist challenger François Hollande but the centrist François Bayrou. He said the killings were the product of a sick society, with politicians who pointed the finger and inflamed passions. No prize for guessing whom he was talking about. Nicolas Sarkozy’s lurch to the right has included such claims as there being too many immigrants in France, and that the French were secretly ingesting halal meat.
See, you can blame right wingers for anything bad that happens, but not Muslims. They’re just a product of society, their religion has nothing to do with how they act, if its a bad thing, at least.
Meanwhile… the Fort Hood shooter, who screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he shot fellow soldiers claiming vengeance for his Muslim brothers in the middle east was declared a “job hazard” and has yet to be put on trial. The guy who went nuts and shot up families – almost certainly because they were harboring the ones who murdered his best friend but were declared off limits by his CO – has his trial being prepped and rushed through.
Surely I can’t be the only one who sees this all as a bit backward?
