3 weeks ago a 75 year old PAKISTANI MAN WAS BRUTALLY MURDERED in BIRMINGHAM by a WHITE MAN with a machete while he was walking home one evening from the Mosque, the press reported this as an "UNPROVOKED ATTACK" & there were no headlines about the man having a "CHRISTIAN APPEARANCE or it being a terrorist attack, why is it then when BROWN PEOPLE HAVE KILLED A WHITE PERSON IT IS CALLED A "TERRORIST" attack by a Muslim APPEARANCE??
THIS HAS NOTHING GOT TO DO WITH RELIGION - NOTHING - RELIGIONS SHOULD NEVER BE INVOLVED - NOT ALL MUSLIMS, CHRISTIANS, HINDUS, SIKHS are the same or of any other religion!
In modern times, in majority white countries like the USA and England when attacks occur on THEIR soil and are carried out by Muslims, there is usually a Muslim group behind it or the perpetrator believes Islam dictated the act be carried out. These imbeciles are usually mislead by some insane imam or power mad cleric, misinformed by some agenda driven sect and almost always illiterate and uneducated (unable to even read the book they mistakenly think instructs them to do these deeds).
Globally Christians carry out far more acts of terror every year, however they do not use Christianity as their direct reason for committing the act. Yes, some do, but that number is quite low. I am a Christian and I acknowledge there is no shortage of asshole violent Christians... There is a shortage of them that praise Jesus while beheading someone though.
The Internet is filled with stories of Muslims stoning women to death for looking at a man or having their face burned off with acid for the same reason even though none of that is in the Quran. Muslims are constantly portrayed as violent oppressive barbaric beasts of little reason and when they attack us they are often yelling Allah Akbar and Jihad this, that or the other. When you combine all that together, as fucked up as it may seem, it makes perfect sense that people have formed these erroneous opinions about Islam.
Islam has become its own worst enemy and is never going to shed this image as long as these barbaric practices continue and assholes keep blowing themselves up while yelling Allah. Islam has to find a better way to protest and get attention to their plight and causes. Muslim sects that practice this barbarism need new ways to deal with religious dissension than be-headings, stones and acid. Then and only then will there EVER be a chance at a fair shake at justice. White people are always gonna be more ok with whites killing people of color than people of color killing whites though so it doesn't matter that the majority of Muslims don't practice these acts of barbarism... The average Joe never makes the news unless it is because his neighbor or relative does something un-average.
I think Nabil states it pretty well...
