Just another example of leftist freaks pretending that *Islam* isn't a threat...

"A Detroit man, a self-described Muslim, walked up to a group of individuals at a bus stop and asked them if they, too, observe the Islamic faith. When they replied that they did not, he stabbed them multiple times. It seems prima facie about as cut-and-dried an incident of radical Islamic extremist violence as you can get unless you work in America’s newsrooms apparently.
"For America’s editors, however, relating this story in a manner that they subjectively determined to be responsible enough proved vexing. Their readers cannot be trusted not to draw the conclusion that the world is facing an epidemic of Islamic violence, particularly given the mounting empirical evidence that makes this condition plain. So, for many media outlets, an agonizing and public display over how to present this story unfolded yesterday.
“A Detroit man stabbed two people at a suburban bus stop after asking his victims whether or not they were Muslim, according to police,” read the lede in The Washington Post’s report on this incident. “Federal authorities are now looking at the case as a potential hate crime, police said on Tuesday.”
"This paragraph greeted the reader who clicked through to the headline, “Police: Man stabs two after asking if they are Muslim.”
"For the casual reader, the implication is clear: The backlash against Muslims that so many eagerly anticipate but which never seems to materialize is finally upon us. An anti-Islamic zealot executed attacks on harmless mass transit riders. Panic is the only appropriate response."

"The outraged response from social media users to this misleading report forced The Post and this article’s author, Abby Ohlheiser, to amend the headline so as to more accurately reflect what had actually happened. “Police: Muslim man stabs two after discussion about religious beliefs.”
"Yes, of course. An edifying and enlightening theological debate was cut short when one of the interchange’s participants got a little stabby. It could happen to anyone.
"Suggesting that this attack was inspired by some form of discussion is like claiming the 21 Copts beheaded by ISIS militants in Egypt were simply on the losing end of an ecumenical colloquium. It does not explain or convey the details of what occurred in Detroit; it obscures them and misleads the reader, which was a result that seems deliberate. "

"“Many social-media users spreading a Detroit Free-Press version of the story Tuesday misinterpreted the story to mean the suspect was trying to attack Muslims,” The Los Angeles Times reported."

There is little doubt, that a war is underway. People can try to deny it all they want, but Islamic terrorists have declared war on all those who are not Islamic. It will continue until the Islamic leaders speak out against such behavior, and speak out loud enough for the entire world to hear them.

and that isn't going to happen, because the *extremists* ARE following the teachings of the Koran.

Hmm kind of funny how that atheist who shot those three muslims last week had to have committed a hate crime according to the MSM who had the story all over TV. Yet this story hasn't even made my local news and the evidence is much better from the starting gate, that is really is a hate crime. Perfect example of biased reporting.

What I've learned from this: Non muslims like me don't count. If a muslim asks me if I'm muslim, shoot first and ask questions later because I'm the only one who's going to care.
