    Professor Dies After Stabbing at Binghamton University | WBNG-TV: News Sports, Weather Binghamton, New York | Local Top Stories

    And this

    Muslim Grad Student Stabs Binghamton (NY) Middle Eastern Studies Professor to Death « Creeping Sharia


    Now shouldn't this be a hate crime?

    Why is it not mentioned that the professor was stabbed because he wrote a book on fundamentalism and then was stabbed by a fundamentalist Muslim?

    The double standard rears its two faced head yet again.

    One is an article giving known facts.

    The other is what looks like a lot of speculation and opinion - updated, corrected and not necessarily right.

    Maybe it is not mentioned that the professor was stabbed because he wrote a book on fundamentalism and then was stabbed by a fundamentalist Muslim because that is not fact but speculation.
