On Stereotypes

Posted by Chad on March 9, 2006

In the same vein as my previous post, I got to thinking….  Stereotypes are brought about and perpetuated by the majority of any said group of people.

I honestly do not believe that the majority of Muslims are “disproportionately prone to violence”.  Taking into account the entire population, the percentage of those willing to strap bombs to themselves or go off-roading in their SUVs has got to be quite low. 

What bothers is how the majority of the Muslim population seems content in allowing this stereotype of violence to continue.  Granted, every now and then you’ll get a condmenation of a bombing out of them, but that’s about it.

So why is it that such a small minority is being allowed run rampant with the image of those who practice Islam?  How is the majority letting such a small few negatively influence the world’s perception of Muslims? 

And more importantly…. why?

Get OUT!! (ala Elaine Benes)

Posted by Chad on March 9, 2006

From the Book Of Redundant Redundancy (aka WaPo-ABCNews Poll):

…. a majority (of Americans) now say that Muslims are disproportionately prone to violence.

Damn near choked on my Mueslix reading that one…  Really?

I know the PC Patrol out there can feel their panties starting to ride up their hoo-hah from this revelation.  After all, not all Muslims are violent.  Most are downright fun-loving and peaceful folk.

It’s just that “disproportionately prone” thing….  Yeah, not all Muslims are terrorists.  But most terrorists are Muslim.  Sooner or later, people are gonna start to realize this.

(WaPo requires registration.  MSNBC has the same story here.)

Allah’s Preferred Method Of Delivery

Posted by Chad on March 6, 2006

Planes into buildings.  Bombs onto buses.  More bombs onto trains.  And now SUVs through college quads.

The whack job behind the wheel this time says he was, “thankful for the opportunity to spread the will of Allah.

What happened to the days when Allah’s will could just be sent via one of those emails with some dancing gerbils on it?  Or maybe a Hallmark card with an exorbitant amount of heart shaped confetti?  Maybe just a simple handshake even?

If I didn’t know any better, I’d think Allah’s will wasn’t so much to spread the word of the Religion of Peace, but to maybe… oh, I don’t know… kill people.

Earth-shattering news, I know.  But if that wasn’t bad enough, this line from 22 year old junior, Khurram Bilal Tariq takes the crazy and kicks it up a notch, Emeril style:

When you think in terms of a global context, this was an isolated incident.

Uhhhhmmm, actually no, Khurram.  Lay down, flip it, and reverse it… you might be on to something.  If you look at this in a local context, it’s an isolated incident (unless SUVs careening through college campuses with the intent to mow down and kill students is an everyday thing down in North Carolina).  When looked at globally, it seems to almost fit a pattern radical Muslim violence.

:::Pats Tariq’s back:::

Good to see that college education workin’ out for you though.  Thanks for playin’.

PS – Any takers on a bet to see how long it’ll be before leaders of the moderate and traditional Muslim community denounce this?
