Muslim Privilege: Muslims Are the Real Victims of Marathon Massacre
FrontPageMag.com ^ | Arpil 20, 2013 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 04/20/2013 8:54:21 AM PDT by Perseverando

It never fails. The bodies of the latest Muslim atrocity aren’t cold before the media spin artists begin pushing the line that it’s their killers who are the real victims.

Before the day is out, you’ll be hearing about the Muslim woman who was supposedly punched on the shoulder by a man in dark glasses who yelled something at her. And you’ll hear more about the Bangladeshi man who was beaten up by some Latino men angry about the massacre. These incidents and others, some real and some made up, will be rolled into the backlash narrative that has become the main concern after any act of Muslim terror.

Islamophobia is largely a myth. There are few actual incidents involving Muslims in this country. The amount of Muslim victimization is completely out of proportion to the actual FBI crime statistics.

Muslim claims of hate crimes hijack the victimization of the victims of Muslim terror. It’s a cynical and disgusting practice that displays a total insensitivity to a grieving nation.

Hate crimes by Muslims, like September 11 and the Marathon Massacre, motivated by Islamic Supremacism and hatred for non-Muslims, far outweigh the rare assault by an American on a Muslim. And that is something that needs to be addressed before the victimization begins.

The Buddhist community in Burma, victimized by Muslim violence, has been holding up protest signs reading, “The world is not only for Muslims.”

That Buddhist message is something that Muslims ought to take to heart. The idea that Muslims are the center of the world is the privilege behind acts of terror like the Marathon Massacre.

If this keeps up there will be some real hate incidents. But I won’t call them “crimes”. They will be a pre-emptive strike in the name of defence. Think Israel 1967.

They’re not the ‘victims’ of anything. From the most peaceful to the most vicious Jihadi, the collective always quietly applauds any Muslim terrorist action.

There is no outrage, no self-examination of the violence their dogma propagates, no apologies or condemnation. Just “we’re gonna be victims of hatred because of this”. And, their money machine then goes to work.

The Saudis contribute behind the scenes and maneuver greedy and sypmathetic financially strapped governments into stepping into line with the big plan.

Where are (or even were) the big protests and demonstrations here by Peaceful Muslims? None, for this or any of the other tragedies - they had to be searched out and coaxed out of a tepid comment of condemnation.

Never gonna happen.

This goes against everything Islam stands for. From an Islamic POV, Buddhists (and all infidels) need to convert or die.

In the end, the Earth will contain only muslims or no muslims.

Because of Islam, there is no possible alternative conclusion.

If a Christian did the deed claiming he was directed by his Religion to do so, DHS would be rolling up to your Neighborhood Church in one of those newly purchased MRAP’s looking for co-conspirators.

You know it. As soon as the jihad stops being fun and exciting (i.e. their would-be victims shoot back and own their sorry asses), they turn into the world's biggest pussies. My blood boils just thinking about it whenever I see some haji scumbag trying to talk tough.

Cloward-Piven anyone?

Report any hajib-wearing person or some Mecca-kneeling folks..anywhere as ^appearing^ to be wearing a explosive-vest device. Profiling by an individual citizen is not illegal (yet, until this catches on..). “If you see something, say something.”

Think about this one folks...seriously.

You are waiting for/on a domestic flight between Detroit and Memphis. The Islamists start chanting and bowing to the East. Just tell the local constabulary/flight attendant that you think they are wearing a suicide vest...what will happen?

I love Daniel Greenfield - just want to say that I think that in its own way, Buddhism is just as much of a threat to Western culture and values - though in a much more insidious way. So much of relativism and ”non-judgemental”-ism comes Buddhism - watered-down Buddhism has permeated our society, as part of what I call 1960s-ism, which is when it started.

Your statement to darkwing104:

“Curious to know if in hindsight you now realize how stupid a statement that was.”
_____________________

You could have just stopped with the WTC pics...

His statement wasn’t stupid - obvious and sarcastic, even kind of funny in a black humor kind of way, but not stupid.

Islam does indeed have an image problem. Why do you think the Brotherhood is so heavily invested in influence-peddling in DC? Precisely because of the images you posted of WTC burning... and for their future endeavors.

So, maybe ease up on throwing darts at a FR compadre. He made a good point.

Not sorry to say that I don't find black humor in this case funny, if indeed that's what the original poster intended.

Islam does indeed have an image problem.

No, Islam has a "kill everyone that disagree's with it, or "blasphemes" it" problem. That's a far cry from an "image" problem.....

Point taken. Still "raw" from the Boston Massacre ISLAMIC TERRORIST ATTACK here and angry/upset about the media's coverage (wanting it to be a white male tea party member.) Timing of the original posters comment was bad from my perspective and pushed the wrong buttons here.

Non-serquitor. Muslims have rejected the Triune God. We should “treat them as fornicators and publicans”, i.e, while human, they get no XPian dispensation for their acts.
