The Way They Do It

UPDATE 28/01/2010

Here's a joke (unknown author) I've just received. I edited the name of the country (a muslim country) originally written by the author and replaced it with "Mid-easterner".
A man is taking a walk in Central park in New York .

Suddenly he sees a little girl being attacked by a pit bull dog.

He runs over and starts fighting with the dog. He succeeds in killing the dog and saving the girl's life.

A policeman who was watching the scene walks over and says: "You are a hero, tomorrow you can read it in all the newspapers: "Brave New Yorker saves the life of little girl".

The man says: "But I am not a New Yorker!"

Oh then it will say in newspapers in the morning:
"Brave American saves life of little girl" the policeman answers.

"But I am not an American!" - says the man. Oh, what are you then?"

The man says: "I am a Mid-Easterneri!"

The next day the newspapers say: "A Terrorist kills innocent American dog".

Below is the original posting.

I remember receiving an email long time ago which I tried to dig out from my email vault, but I could not find it. It was written something like this:-

- A muslim girl with a headscarf is a religious extremist whereas a christian girl with a head scarf is a nun.
- The suicide bomber was Ali, an Islamic terrorist, whereas, the building was bombed by a terrorist named John..

Nevertheless, the following was received recently:-

Killers - The way they reported it (if it was Muslim)

Muslim killed daughter for the "dishonour" of having boyfriend

Muslim husband who killed his wife and children because of their western ways
Devote Muslim father kills daughter

Killers - The way they reported it (if it was non-Muslim)

Fathers who kill their children
Father arrested for killing 13-month old daughter
Father killed his sons to make his wife suffer
Man killed wife, two young children

Man who allegedly killed his wife at YMCA was under court restraint.
Iowa man killed wife, 4 kids, then self.

Incest Crime (if it was Muslim)

A Muslim who married his 15-year old daughter.....

Incest Crime (if it was non-Muslim)

John Earnest Deaves and his daughter, Jennifer Anne Deaves
are at the center of incest scandal.....
A south Australian woman who has an infant daughter
after having sex with her father gave birth to another...

Now let us look at terrorists (if it was Muslim)

How many Americans have been killed by Islamic terrorists since 1960?
Muslim terrorists killed in China raid

And the terrorists (if it was non-Muslim)

US university shooting kills 33

6 shot dead, including gunman, at Northern Illinois University

The Muslim suicide bombers

Islamic suicide bombers attacks Jerusalem bus
Muslim bomber found guilty of worst attack on India's day of terror

Suicide bomber (if it was non-Muslim)

Suicide bomber kills President of Sri Lanka
Suicide bomber kills official and 13 others at Sri Lanka race
Bomber kills police officers in Sri Lanka

Let us look at some statistics of Suicide Terrorism in Lebanon

and Religious Suicide Attackers versus Secular Suicide Attackers (between what was "known" and what was "estimated")



And who are the "Terrorists" again ?

And a bit more statistics....

And lastly, closer to home reporting....

They have to resort to these very biased, dirty tactics when describing Muslim or Islam?  What does it take to continuously smear Muslim / Islam names in the eyes of the world?

What can you tell then about the "inner strength or faith" of a muslim when they have to resort to such seemingly desperate smearing tactics?
