    You fools are defending him, hypothetically giving the fool cancer and all the rest. The fact is HE BURNT HER. That is a crime. She was wearing a hijab and hadn't provoked him. I'm not surprised your ability to make logical conclusions is suddenly impaired now that the victim is Muslim - which as you pointed out - happens quite regularly.

    The bias is quite disgusting. If the attacker was Muslim the papers would emphasise that - So why not when the victim is Muslim?


    The political climate in America also plays a role but clearly burying your head is easier that facing up to the truth.

    Of course he wasn't justified. But if you read the replies to the OP, they are taking issue with certain assertions and assumptions he makes.
    Why do some people find it so difficult to grasp simple concepts.



    I love how accurately you've described your own stupidity. So flipping cute! LMAO

    When a Muslim blows up in the middle of a crowded street screaming allahu akbar we see the non-conclusionists come out of the wood work. If someone sneezes in the general direction of a Muslim then the same people cry 'it must be a hate crime'.

    Likewise, any mention of Islam in a news article, we see non-conclusionists go ape on Islam's ills.

    Yeah just because you don't see the condemnations, doesn't mean they don't exist.
    @h333 and I both expressed our disapproval of the suicide bombing on shias in Saudi a couple of months ago on ISOC.

    Exactly but I don't think some people are ready to accept that. They want Muslims to be some kind of super humans to be condeming things all the time on TSR (or they just don't think there is a world outside of TSR :hmmm: ) :rolleyes: but they themselves don't even condemn most or all of the time. Tragic events happen all over the world everyday nearly, I am sure most people know and feel sad about it and condemn it.
    I don't remember entirely if I did or not with that event but I am sure you must have.

    The point was, there are certain posters on ISOC who make almost daily posts about attacks on a specific demographic, but don't mention similar attacks on a different one.

    And other posters (like myself) do not need to repeat condemnation because they do not equivocate in their condemnation on certain issues.

    All deliberate violent attacks on non-combatants and civilians are always wrong, regardless who the victims or the perpetrators are, without exception.

    See. That covers everything from the Paris attacks to barrel bombs in Syria to Sunni IEDs in Iraq to the singed sleeve to drone strikes. The lot, you name it. No need to repeat myself because there is no ambiguity or equivocation.I condemn it all. End of.

    I don't understand why you're tagging me? I never claimed it was an anti Muslim Islamophobic hate crime in the first place.
    Not sure if you intentionally missed my second comment on this thread :rolleyes:

    Agreed. PRSOM.

    And yeah, I sent the link to QE2 which includes your comment of condemnation. Hate to say I told him so...

    Very true. But you did think it was though, didn't you? Come on. Even I thought it was likely, it was just that there was no evidence for it.
    A perfect example of why we should always wait for more info.

    And I apologised for my error (or did you intentionally miss that comment :rolleyes:)

    The same can be said about others just focusing on one part of the world, why is the focus always on ISOC? Therefore, I say let people condemn any tragic act, obvioulsy if it is deliberate to cause terror etc, it is upto them, there should be no problem. What I mean is we should not say "Why are you only condemming this?" If you feel strongly that an act needs to be condemned and for some reason specifically it has to be shown on ISOC then you can post about it yourself and I am sure users will condemn it as long as it is a crime etc. Still it doesn't automatically mean they just care about one part of the world, we have no right to claim that, unless they confess themselves. Even the posters you are talking about, I am sure they have a heart and do care about all innocent lives.

    And good for you, same here. A crime is a crime no matter where it happes in the world.

    Although it almost certainly is.

    The victim was almost certainly a victim of hate crime because she was Muslim

    Such certainty

    But certainly wrong,

    The victim was wearing a hijab. So the chances of it being a targeted hate crime are pretty high.

    as you have been shown numerous times

    The assumption that A causes B simply because A correlates with B is often not accepted as a legitimate form of argument.
