Muslims Upset At The Wrong People

According to some recent articles like the one at MSNBC HERE, some Muslims are offended by TV shows like '24' which portray them in a bad light (i.e., as 'terrorists'). They are even complaining to FOX suggesting that Muslims should be shown in "more positive portrayals".

EXCUUUSE ME! HELLOOOOHH!! The vast majority of terrorist violence today is perpetrated by MUSLIMS. If you do a Google search of "terror" on a daily basis, you will soon begin to realize that the words 'terror' and 'Muslim' seem inextricably linked. Sure, there are other terrorists in the world... Basque separatists, the LTTE 'Tamil Tigers', and even the KKK is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department. And then there's the IRA and Sinn Fein in Ireland, etc. Terrorists come in all flavors: Marxist-Leninist, Christian, Jewish, Sikh, Irish, French, Japanese, Cuban, American, Central American, South American and African. There are animal rights terrorists and environmental terrorists.

But the vast majority of recent terrorist acts (and the most deadly) seem to have been committed mainly by Muslims. In America, 9/11 was perpetrated by Muslims. In London, 7/7 was perpetrated by Muslims. In Madrid, 3/11 was perpetrated by Muslims. The Bali bombings were perpetrated by Muslims. The terrorist acts in Iraq (which occur almost daily) are perpetrated by Muslims. Palestinian Muslims perpetrate terrorist attacks on Israel from Gaza, the West Bank, and Lebanon. Muslim Iran threatens the destruction of Israel, and supports Muslim Hezbollah terrorists, Muslim Palestinian terrorists, and Muslim Shiite terrorists in Iraq.

Muslims were behind the terrorist attacks at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich Germany. Muslims seized the U.S. embassy in Iran and took 52 Americans hostage for 444 days in 1979-80. Muslim Iran used Muslim Hezbollah to bomb the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983. Muslims were behind the hi-jacking of the Achille Lauro in 1985. Muslims were responsible for the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988. Muslims were behind the first World Trade Center attack in 1993. Muslim Iran was behind the Khobar Towers terrorist attack in 1996. Muslims were responsible for the attack on the USS Cole in 2000.

The terrorists in the Philipines are Muslim. The terrorists in Indonesia are Muslims. The violence in France is being caused by Muslims. The Chechen rebels are primarily Muslims. The separatists in northwest China are Muslim. The Danish cartoon riots were caused by Muslims. The July 11, 2006 bombings in Mumbai, India are believed to have been the work of Pakistani Muslims. The New Year's Eve bombings of December 31, 2006 in Bangkok Thailand were most likely caused by the Islamic separatist movement in that country.

Osama bin Laden is Muslim. Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was Muslim. Al-Qaeda is Muslim. The Taliban are Muslim. The Abu Nidal Organization is Muslim. The Abu Sayyaf Group is Muslim. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade is Muslim. Ansar al-Islam is Muslim. Hamas is Muslim. Hezbollah is Muslim. Islamic Jihad is Muslim. Jemaah Islamiya is Muslim. The Mujahedin-e Khalq is Muslim. The Palestine Liberation Front is Muslim.

For a full list of all the Islamic terror attacks in the last three months, click HERE. Then, scroll down to find links to other listings of Islamic terrorist attacks since September 11, 2001. If the numbers are accurate, Muslims have been responsible for 7,220 terrorist attacks since September 11, 2001. That is an average of 3.7 Muslim terrorist attacks every day since 9/11. If the numbers are correct (and they may be low), then Muslim terrorist attacks have killed at least 38,105 people and injured at least 57,628 since September 11, 2001.

By far, the greatest percentage of current threats to the United States comes from terrorist groups that are Muslim. Fully 27% (the largest single category) on the U.S. State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations are Islamist groups in the Middle East.

So, why do Muslims get a bad rap at FOX and Hollywood, representing Muslims as terrorists? D'UH! Gee, I don't know... beats me! Muslims shouldn't be upset with FOX. Muslims should be upset with Muslims.

I thought they were going to change the terrorists in that show from Muslims to Neo-Nazis or somesuch...

According to the article at my first link, last season they were Russian separatists.

This year they're Muslims. It certainly makes sense.

What about that new Canadian show, "Little Mosque on the Prairie"? I bet that one portrays Muslims in a kinder light...

Personally I'm getting tired of Muslim's whining about "profiling". It's not Eskimo grandmas or midget aborigines who are blowing up night clubs and slamming jetliners into buildings.

As long as mainstream Muslims remain relatively silent about the atrocities being committed explicitly in the name of Islam, Allah, and the Koran, that silence is deafening to me. Every opinion section in every newspaper in America ought to be full of "moderate" Muslim roundly condemning the disgusting atrocities committed by fundamentalist Muslims each and every day for the last five years - and years previous.

I originally came from Central America (Hard to get more "Central" than Kansas); does that make me a terrorist?

Thanks for not making my type that jibberish!

What Muslims need is a few stand up comics, or maybe a loveable character actor/sidekick in a few funny movies?

I suggest one named MuSLIM Pickens!

Just so he doesn't recreate a role Slim played riding a bomb horseback style!

He would be alright in a Mel Brooks remake called "Blazing Burkas" though.

Maybe they could run "Omar" for Sheriff.

But ... don't we have to understand them? Don't we? Aren't they just "people like us"?

No? Then screw 'em! Let 'em complain - that seems to be what they are best at, these days, other than slaughtering innocent people.
