‘Please Don’t Be a Muslim’: CAIR, Others Respond to Boston Bombings on Twitter
The Blaze ^ | April 15, 2013 | Tiffany Gabbay

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

After two explosions claimed multiple lives and injured more than 100 people at the Boston Marathon Monday, Muslims around the world took to Twitter — some to express their sympathies, others to express their hope that the perpetrator of the attack not be a Muslim.

Libyan Twitter user Hend Amry appears to have been the one to start the thread with her tweet: “Please don’t be a Muslim.”

Her post was retweeted by more than 100 Twitters users including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Jenan Moussa, a journalist for Dubai-based Al-Aan TV also retweeted Amry’s message, adding that she was simply stating “the thought of every Muslim right now.”

Some of the tweets may also be fueled by reports earlier in the day alleging a Saudi Arabian national may be a suspect in the attack and is currently being guarded by police. Those reports have not been confirmed, but several national and local outlets are reporting that to be the case.....

You’d need to have good reason to suspect it might be to provoke that thought......

Notice the muzz express no sympathy for the victims (i.e., they don’t really care about the deaths and carnage). They don’t care who is responsible, just so long as they are not blamed.

Are the muzz in Gaza trilling and handing out candy?

Odd they would be worried about who bombed the Marathon when poll after poll indicates most muslims are wholly supportive of Jihad worldwide.

The mantra has already started. Right wing extremists, tax protestors, gun nuts, Tea Party, and on and on and on.

When it turns out to be a friggin Muslim....crickets.

My guess was Amish. After all, Islam is a religion of peace, as the media remind us after every single isolated attack like this, so it seems unlikely that a Muslim would have committed this attack too.

Recall that it was a Left Wing tax protester who flew a plane into the IRS building in Austin a few years back.

The question is what will these Muslims say if it turns out that is IS a Muslim.

per FowNews...Brigham & Womens hospital in Boston on lockdown with a Saudi national “person of interest” wounded inside.

To be fair though - it’s still early.

If you don’t want it to be a Muslim, then how about going after your people who symphasize with this type of activity (70 per cent of your population).

If he’s tied to it...that’s the last we’ll hear of him. He’ll be deported back SA and we’ll be told what a great guy Obammy is....not like Bush the monster.

Finally, something I can agree with. I would like to tell all of them not to be muslims.

Have you seen the update on Hot Air evening edition by Erika Johnsen?

In the middle of the numerous updates, there is this twitt (twit?) from Byron Barnett @BBarnett7News

"Swat team in place outside Boston Medical Center where 20 victims of the Marathon bombings were taken. #7news pic.twitter.com/Ee1L6BVBgD" (see picture at link)

Is this normal? Highly unusual?

“The question is what will these Muslims say if it turns out that is IS a Muslim.”

What they’ll say is that isn’t representative of such a religion of peace, and anyone who disagrees is an islamophobic hater.

Well, betting everyone here is praying is IS one of theirs.

Actually, I'm just hoping it's not one of ours. So I can kind of sympathize with what they're thinking. Their problem is that Muslims represent an outsized share of anti-American attacks. Our guys have the expertise but not the inclination. Their guys don't generally have the expertise, but they make up for it with lots of enthusiasm for spilling infidel blood.

Predictable? Yup! Almost inevitable.

1. Blame Tea Party
2. Run stories about how Muslims worldwide are aghast and hoping the bomber is not a Muslim.
3. When (natch) a Muslim is found to be responsible, moan and wail about all the poor innocent Muslims who are going to face a blacklash against their pure faith due to these few scurrilous not-really-Muslim attackers.
4. Agonize over why they hate us and what we can do to atone for it.
5. Talk about anything else.

You can bet CAIR, Grover Norquist, and all the Islamic Terrorist sympathizers are sweating hummus hoping this is not a Muslim

Also, you can also bet Marco Rubio and MS Ocho are a little tight in the spinchter....as it will be harder to push Illegal Alien Amnesty just after a foreign terrorist blew up the Boston Marathon

Nonsense, of course. The Boston Marathon is not a target of any symbolic significance.

And, it's not April 19th.

It’s what we had to deal with nearly every day from flights in from Afghanistan and Iraq or while we were in the AOR.

It is was and it’s still happening.

I just wish it was over there, in the deserts or the mountains.

And I wish it was noncombatants. Not my neighbors.
