Why are Muslims always whining about being victimised?

Possibly it has something to do with incidents like this....which I'm sure some of the swivel-eyed loons over at LGF will applaud.

Hate crime yobs target Muslims

Revolting thugs urinated on to shoes and clothes belonging to worshipping Muslims.

Police are treating the incident as a hate crime against Bath's Muslim community and say they are determined to track down the perpetrators.

The two male offenders entered the lobby of the Bath Islamic Centre in Pierrepont Street during evening prayers, before urinating on clothing and shoes left in the entrance by worshippers.

Their mindless vandalism has disgusted members of the mosque and left the belongings of five people damaged.

In an attempt to bring those responsible to justice, Avon and Somerset police have now released CCTV images of the yobs.

The unprovoked attack has shocked Muslim leaders and campaigners for racial equality in Bath.

As well as two gay men, one a Muslim from Iran, verbally attacked and then thrown out of a cab in NYC after one gives the other a peck on the cheek. The driver, described as North African (and Muslim as well), threw every slur against gays that he knew in English at the couple before stopping the cab to throw them out. They took the opportunity to run for it and call the cops before the driver could do more than just insult them.

The irony? The Iranian-American is now an American after fleeing oppression in his native country and knows full well what would happen to him in Iran, yet he is attacked by a gay basher of his own religion as well as facing discrimination from others for being Middle Eastern.

The press has not reported on this, so I am making people aware. We owe our refugees/asylum seekers better. We owe them the freedom that we promise here in the U.S., not continued oppression. Unfortunately, homophobes aren't all Muslim immigrants, probably the least problem here for LGBTs.

Thanks for the rest of the post though, too true. And I've only had a wand stuck in my baby's diaper at an airport after buying a last-minute one way ticket and "flying while Middle Eastern looking".

What does this have to do with the post, Lex? Sounds like you're bullshitting...

Anon, not bullshitting, I was just pissed about the incident when I visited here last time. I'm pissed that people keep picking on my friends, and agreed that Muslims are complaining about victimization because they are being victimized. Just like the post says.
