The mainstream media and Muslims–especially HAMAS front-group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations)–are making a big deal out of a story in which a Muslim man “saved” three Jews from attack in the New York subway from people who objected to them saying “Happy Chanukah” to subway riders.
That’s great. But ya know, there’s a reason anti-Semitism is at its highest levels since the Holocaust. And the Muslim religion is a big reason. So because one guy bucked his entire religion of 1.6 billion mostly Jew-haters, it’s really not a big deal. It’s hardly an H2O molecule in an ocean.
If only the media made as big of a deal of the regular assassinations of Jews–on a daily basis–by Muslims in and around Israel, as they are of this one guy, then we’d be in biz.
But they (the Mainstream Media) don’t. They don’t care about Jews being slaughtered by Muslims. It happens every day. And Jewish lives just ain’t that important to them. Just like they weren’t too important to them, during the Holocaust, when the New York Times and other papers wouldn’t cover it and covered it up.
So, to the Muslim guy who helped these Jews under attack, I say, good for you. You are courageous. But where are the other 1.6 billion of your fellow co-religionists?
There at a mosque listening to a sermon about killing Jews and Christians and others, or watching Al-Jazeera or Al-Manar or Al-Arabiya hearing similar instructions. Or at a bookstore helping make Mein Kampf a continued best-seller in the Muslim world. Or partying to Daniel “I am a Jew” Pearl and Nick Berg videos.
They’re the ones who tell me everything I need to know about your faith. Not your one anomalous and meaningless instance of Muslim Man Bites Non-Halal Dog.
The consistent trend in your religion is so far in the other direction, it fell off the continuum.
