Muslim victimhood?

July 26, 2011

An insane man in Norway killed 70+ people via a car bomb near a government building and a gun attack on a youth camp sponsored by a political party.  The best description that I’ve read about Anders Behring Breivik is from Mark Humphreys on his blog:

A lone Norwegian “counter-jihad” right-winger decides to slaughter left-wingers, in the worst terrorist attack in the West since Madrid.All of the counter-jihad figures he cites as influences disown and despise him. None of them ever supported anything like this. In no sane world does opposing terror attacks on the West logically lead to carrying out terror attacks on the West.

The killer is no different to an Islamist jihad terrorist. He bombs the elected democratic Norwegian government and Oslo civilians. Targeting the centre-left government is incredibly extreme – they support the Afghan War and the Libya War. He then carries out the most sadistic, barbaric attack against children at a mainstream, centre-left, politicial summer camp. His attack targeted children who had nothing to do with policy, and was incredibly sadistic, hunting them down and executing them close up.

(h/t Kathy Shaidle)

In response to this event, WHY, WHY, WHY is Ahmed Shoker worried about the Muslim community being “re-victimized”?!  He’s concerned about “violent retaliation”?  From whom?  Towards whom?

The Muslim community wasn’t even a victim in the first place so they can’t be re-victimized!

And why did CKOM even feel the need to get a response to the tragedy from the local Muslim media spokesman?  Did he call them?

Update:  CTV Saskatoon is doing it, too!  After seeking comments from Muslims in Saskatoon, Calvin To says “In the wake of these events, this seeming lack of hostilities here at home is a relief to many.”   To narrates that “Racial tensions are unlikely to happen here as a backlash.”   Major Gen. Lewis McKenzie (ret) asks “What are we going to do?  Run around and attack blond-haired, blue-eyed Norwegians.  That would be pretty stupid as they are some of our best friends.  To attack the Muslim population or point fingers would be even more unfair because they are the victims in this.”  Seriously.

Muslims are NOT the victims in this.

What do you think many Muslims first thought when they heard about the car bombing and the attack on the camp in Oslo?  I’ll bet that they thought “Oh crap.  Another Muslim terrorist attack.”  I’ll bet that they were quite relieved that it was a crazy white guy.

Another update:  And it looks like the answer is “yes … he did contact the media”.  Dr. Shoker has now written a letter to the editor of the Star Phoenix:

Our grief overrides the concern for any future negative acts against Muslims in the wake of this heinous act. This is a time for all Muslims to think of themselves as proud Canadians with unwavering support for multiculturalism, and not as a fearful minority seeking protection.

Muslims were not the target or the perpetrators of the attack in Oslo.  They are not the victims!


And Another update:  The victimhood spreads across Canada.

    There is a sad misconception right now that terrorism=Islam=Muslims. While it is possible to find examples to fit the theory, there is enough terrorism to go around.

    The sad truth is that most people don’t take the time, or have the inclination to actually look into an issue and would much rather encapsulate a very complex situation into a 12 second sound bite full of good and evil analogies.

    Is there such a thing as an ______________ (fill in the blank with whatever ethnic/religious descriptor you would like) community. A community implies one voice, one common set of values, one common beliefs and a common goal. Perhaps it is time to actually look at individuals and not labels.

    “What this means is that there’s a valid reason to fear that the act had been carried out by ideological adherents of the more cult-like sects of Islam. It’s the same reason that upon hearing that a dog mauled a person, you probably assume it’s a pitbull; or when you hear a paedophile molested a child, you assume it’s a middle-aged white male. You could be wrong in either case, but your brain makes the unconscious association before the liberal progressive training you’ve received can object.”

    CAIR-CAN has warned their community to be extra careful because of this slaughter. They have even issued a Muslim Safety Kit. Really.

    Odd that this kit wasn’t released after any of the 15,000+ attacks in which the ROP was involved.
