Let’s Focus On The REAL Victims Of The UC Merced Stabbings: Muslims

Font Size:

Whenever an Islamic terrorist a person who just happens to be a Muslim commits an act of violence, naturally our first instinct is to worry about all the other Muslims who feel sorry for themselves. Sure, it’s too bad about the victims of the actual physical violence and all that, but we need to keep our priorities in order.

The stabbings at UC Merced are certainly no exception. Rob Parsons, Thaddeus Miller, and Michelle Morgante, Sacramento Bee:

Anger over being kicked out of a University of California at Merced study group drove an 18-year-old computer science student to make a precise plan to kill “a lot of people,” according to a two-page, hand-written manifesto found during his autopsy, authorities said Thursday.

Faisal Mohammad, a slender freshman in glasses, entered his Wednesday morning class with a 10-inch knife, a backpack filled with zip-tie handcuffs, duct tape and, in his pocket, a point-by-point script for vengeance, Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke told reporters: “He had a pretty elaborate idea of what he wanted to do…”

While armchair observers on social media were quick to point to Mohammad’s mere name as evidence of terrorism, Warnke said that was not the case…

Asked if the manifesto made any references to Allah, Warnke said there were, but dismissed any suggestion that Mohammad was motivated by religion.

“His belief was through the Muslim faith, but there’s nothing to indicate anything other than that,” Warnke said. “It’d be like a Christian referring to the Lord Jesus.”

You can be sure that if the UC Merced stabber had been a devout Christian who wrote a manifesto plotting murder and praising Jesus, everyone would be falling all over themselves to defend Christians. And they’d sneer at any “armchair observers” who tried to link an act of violence to an entire group of people. That’s how we do things in America, right?

In addition, KFSN reports:

Mohammad’s two page manifesto referenced Allah, but Warnke again made it clear that there is still no indication to believe the 18-year-old’s attack was religiously motivated.

“It doesn’t mean that I’m anything other than I’ve got a belief in a higher power and his belief was through the Muslim faith, but there’s still nothing to indicate there was anything other than that,” Warnke said.

Warnke says we must remember that it’s not right to group all Muslims together, especially when so many are gentle, loving people.

See? Many Muslims are gentle and loving, which means that Islam couldn’t possibly be a motive for an act of violence. It’s called logic, people.

In completely unrelated news, the Middle East Media Research Institute reports:

Umm Muhammad Shamasne, whose son Muhammad was killed while perpetrating a terror attack on a bus in Jerusalem on October 12, was recently interviewed in her home by the Lebanese Al-Quds TV channel. Offering the interviewer candy to celebrate her son’s martyrdom, Umm Muhammad Shamasne said that she hoped her other sons would follow in his footsteps, and pulled out a knife, threatening: “My deeds will speak louder than words.” The interview aired on October 22, 2015.

What we’re seeing here is a never-ending string of complete and utter coincidences. These things just happen. And happen. And happen, and happen, and happen.

Now shut up or somebody will call you a bigot. You don’t want that, do you?
