'Please donít be Muslimí: Fears of racial, ethnic profiling in the wake of Boston bombing
The Grio ^ | April 17, 2013 | Zaheer Ali

Posted on 04/19/2013 9:39:32 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

As the news broke of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on Monday, I thought how horrific and tragic it was that people trained all year for a race that ended for some in the loss of limbs or even death.

Just as my heart went out to the victims of such terrifying violence, my mind raced to thoughts of the perpetrator: “Please don’t be Muslim,” I muttered to myself, joining what seemed to be a global chorus of Muslims on social media, fearing the kinds of ethnic and religious profiling that could fuel calls for violent reprisals against entire communities.

Conservative commentator Erik Rush’s tweet declaring Muslims, “evil” and urging “Let’s kill them all,” certainly did nothing to assuage my fears.

The Chechens were simply anti-Soviet Union before they were Islamic Jihadi. Chechnya sides with Hitler in WW II. The Islamists started moving to Chechnya in big numbers during the nineties, in support of the Chechen war against Russia, but the real reason was to break the line of demarcation that separated the Muslim Caucasus from Europe and Russia. The tribal fighting in the area actually worked to protect Europe and the Soviet Union from a Jihadi invasion.

That’s the frigging problem. What in the L do they think the terrorist is doing setting a bomb next to an 8yr old. And these whiny non-violent Muslims pinch their but over terrorist attacks because they suspect their fellow Muslim first, too. What is that Muslim terrorist doing if not PROFILING a group of people and ENTIRE communities?! GAH! Go cry out of my sight, you spineless wimps.

Wonderful sentiments, if true.

However, we can’t help noticing that, in other parts of the world, Moslems were cheering in the streets.

Yeah but 99% of Muslims are peace loving, blah,blah,blah.

It’s the 1% of the 2,2Billion that are nuts,

Wait!

That’s 22 million people!

That’s a population larger than 2/3rds of the nations in the UN!

Holly moly!

Politically incorrect guide to islam “peace”.

http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

The first Twin Towers bombing.
The shooting of tourists at the Empire State
building.

Shooting up the LAX El Al counter.

Twin Towers, Pentagon destruction.

Shooting of recruits in North Little Rock Arkansas.

And many many more in the US.

“It is along the lines of why American females who convert love to wear the costume, it makes them ‘special’...”

You’re right-lib women “feel” for these Kenites while wishing to feel “special”...when their clitoruses are cut off or those of their young daughters’ are removed surgically, they might wake-up, but by then, it’s too late.

Sorry-no sympathy for self-hatred.

(I wonder how many liberal females are on some sort of anti-depressive in this country.)

when ‘moderate’ muslims start condemning these acts and turning in the doers of such deeds THEN AND ONLY THEN will I begin to think that they may have a shred of humanity in them

“Please don’t be Muslim.”

Don’t worry - I won’t.

This is definitely a triple-bagger...

Source ("The Grio") is apparently owned by the National Bolshevik Channel (NBC). Suprise, surprise...

Looks like it is too late. The Religion of Peace was once again proved to be anything but peaceful.

They’ll just bitch and moan and act like it’s just not fair. They’ll also continue to support the terrorist religion and go about their normal evils.

Same as after 9/11 and every other islamic atrocity over the centuries.
