Islam: Guilty until proven otherwise

Talk about using scare quotes a lot. Charles is reporting that 'Youths' that attacked a 16 year old girl have been freed (despite the Police obviously having no solid evidence to hold them as yet, and the fact that they're aged 13-15 makes them very unlikely to flee justice) . Now Charles uses the 'Youths' in scare quotes to mean 'immigrant Muslims' although as the piece he's so happily cut and pasted states the suspects are two German Turks, a German Russian and a German Angolan. So that's two that are likely to have a Muslim background, one that's unlikely and the Angolan kid is highly unlikely to be from a Muslim background.

This is just another example of Charles stoking the fires of Muslim bashing by picking up stories because of the 'Muslim angle', when in fact there is little or no link to Islam.

The victim must be stoned to death, instead.

It's in the Koran.

The world oftentimes does appear to have gone mad. Thanks heavens for the American military, (WTF? Ed.)

duh, she wasn't wearing a hijab, the poor muslim men were provoked into raping her, they are the real victims, it was a provocation by the sinful lust filld girl, tempting the men into carnal sin, they were provoked!

She should be thankful she's not Muslim. If she were, she would now face a stoning (or an honor killing) for "disgracing" her family.

I am by no means a fan of skinheads, but why the hell dont they "Have a dialogue" with these peaceful muslim youths? Even the thug haters have turned into P.C. pussies.

"Mercy to the guilty is cruelty to the innocent."

There is also this line from Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain: "Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil." Sums up the whole muslim/jihadi/Caliphate/terrorism mess succinctly. But until islam's ideology is labelled evil, nothing will change in our multicultural societies, as evidenced by stories like this one.

Who cares?

While I genuinely feel for the victim, and think these roaches should burn at the stake for what they did, this is a problem that German society has created, all the while slandering us as uncouth xenophobic barbarians. They brought this upon themselves, just like the British who did nothing to stop those that announced the imminent bombing of their trains and buses. Fuck 'em. If they want to end their lives with their asses in the air howling at a rock, so be it. I couldn't care less about Europe, or the dhimmis that inhabit it. Incidents like this are so frequent these days, to hope for it to get better is a waste of thought

I don't know why the outrage. This happens everyday in America with Mexican crimminals and the same result occurs, Twenty eight percent of our most violent federal crimminals are illegal aliens. That statistic is only marginally better than the immigrant crime rate in Germany. Bush calls them decent. Seems OK. (ahh...the Mexicans did it....Malikin will be proud - Ed.)

I'm not sure how "guilt from the past" justifies allowing gang rapists to go free. While persecuting a minority (Jews in WWII era) was horrific, why should Germans (and all Europeans) allow themselves to be victimized by this new minority? Not to mention tolerate a big rise in anti-Jewish violence in the name of "tolerance" toward Muslims?

None of this makes any sense, to me.


What doesn't make sense is that so many people with apparently more than one brain cell can

a) already claim people guilty before being put on trial (especially from thousands of miles away)

and

b) blame Islam for it.

I think you're being far too harsh on Charles by criticising him for being casual with the facts.

Afterall, when has rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth bigotry been associated with factual accuracy?

I suspected we'd see nothing on here about the Iranian governement planning to force non-Muslims to wear identifying markings.

That is a major story that should be covered by people with any sense of decency. Evidently that's not the case here.

Scott:

Look above, it's a major story if it's true. There seems to be some doubt.

MJ said...

PS any comments on this post? Or are you just popping in to demand us to report on stories that may not even be true?

I wonder what Charles would say about this:

6000 Women mudered in Mexico over last 5 years:

http://news.inq7.net/breaking/index.php?index=3&story_id=76346

Is there a Muslim angle to that? How many Muslims in Mexico?
