It’s fascinating to see the American media pushing the Muslim sob stories already. The inevitable reaction that their violent expansion into the West will inspire hasn’t even begun yet:
Asma Jama had been at the Coon Rapids Applebee’s
for just 25 minutes when the beer mug smashed into her face. She was
left with 17 stitches, a persistent headache and scars that may be
38-year-old Minneapolis resident returned to Minnesota last week after
fleeing the state for several weeks to be with family in Texas. And while Jama took the actual blow, Muslims throughout the Twin Cities have been wounded by the attack.Anti-Muslim
and anti-immigrant voices are a loud presence on the American political
scene, especially at times of crisis such as the recent terrorist
attacks in Paris and the arrests of suspected ISIL recruits from
Minnesota.And now, with a woman attacked in a popular family restaurant, Muslims can’t help but wonder: Will I be next?“It’s
appalling,” said Fatima Alnizami, a St. Paul native who now lives in
Brooklyn Park. “People are on high alert, and they think anybody wearing
a head scarf or a beard is a terrorist.Alnizami, who works at the Al-Amal School in
Fridley, said she hesitates to speak Arabic to her two young children in
public. “I have to be worried that I might be making someone angry,”
don’t feel safe,” said Ahmad Abu Atieh, director of the Islamic
Cultural Community Center in Minneapolis. “I worry that someone will
attack me. Every day.”
Less than a week after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that killed 2,996 people, President Bush held a news conference at the Islamic Center of Washington. “The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam,” he said, flanked by imams and community leaders. “Islam is peace.”
That says it all right there. Submission is peace. Resistance is war. Choose. Those are the two options – the only two options – everyone in the West faces. It doesn’t matter whether you like those options or not, submission or resistance is all that there is. That’s the way it plays out every single time.
Tens of thousands of Muslims are fleeing to neighboring countries by plane and truck as Christian militias stage brutal attacks, shattering the social fabric of this war-ravaged nation.
In towns and villages as well as here in the capital, Christian vigilantes wielding machetes have killed scores of Muslims, who are a minority here, and burned and looted their houses and mosques in recent days, according to witnesses, aid agencies and peacekeepers. Tens of thousands of Muslims have fled their homes.
The cycle of chaos is fast becoming one of the worst outbreaks of violence along Muslim-Christian fault lines in recent memory in sub-Saharan Africa, tensions that have also plagued countries such as Nigeria and Sudan.
It is mysterious, is it not, that those same tensions also happen to plague Hindu countries like India and Bangladesh as well, where innocent Muslim minorities who ain’t never done nothing to nobody are also violently oppressed? Well, surely it’s different in America than in India, and Myanmar, and Bangladesh, and Nigeria, and Serbia, and Sudan, and the Philippines, and China, and the Central African Republic….
