Excerpt from New Straits Times letter.
A friend pointed out that in a recent book by Charles Kurzman, it was mentioned that only 40 people had perished because of terrorism in the United States since the 9/11 attacks, compared with 140,000 murders in the US in that time.
He added: “Kurzman also offers a provocative argument that is sure to set the jihad-hunters’ hair on fire — that there are actually very few Islamic terrorists in the world today.”
Another friend, who is an expert in international political relations, in making connections to Islamophobic attitudes, Norwegian killings and recent riots in the United Kingdom, offered an unapologetic comment on Western hypocrisy towards Islam: “When accused of terrorism, we are Muslims, but when killed by looters, we become Asians…”
Can such blatant hypocrisy be forgiven?
MUHAMMAD HUSNI MOHD AMIN, Bangi, Selangor
Who is the hypocrite here?
Very few Islamic terrorists in the world today?
He has never visited thereligionofpeace.com. Just an example, from 23-25 Aug 2011, twenty people were killed by terrorists who claim to kill in the name of Islam. The victims included women and children and monks. This happens every day with the overwhelming majority of victims being Muslims.
When accused of terrorism named as Muslims, but when killed by looters called Asians?
Muhammad Husni basically blames everything else under the sky for ‘Islamophobia’, but conveniently glosses over the real reason and sweeps it under a rug that he then throws into the basement.
I’ve said it before over and over… Who Really Gives a Bad Name to Islam?
