Continuing the Cycle

Anger is not our friend. Striking out in hatred, with a thirst for blood, is folly. From Boing Boing:

Welcome to the Kristallnacht II rehearsals. Moslems, brown people and Arabs need not apply:

  • 300 demonstrators marched on a Mosque in Bridgeview, IL (“I’m proud to be American and I hate Arabs and I always have,” said 19-year-old Colin Zaremba who marched with the group from Oak Lawn.”)

  • Molotov cocktail tossed into a Moslem community center in Chicago

  • Armed robber in Gary Indiana threatens a Yemeni-American gas-station attendant with a high-powered assault rifle

  • A drunk driver in Huntington, NY tried to run down a Pakistani woman in a parking lot, then followed her into a store and threatened to kill her for “destroying my country.”

  • In Australia, a schoolbus carrying Moslem children was stoned

  • In Australia, a Lebanese church is burned

  • Jish, a local blogger, is chased out of the coffee shop by rednecks who want to know if he’s Afghani.

  • Muslim students at the University of Texas are subject to search

Anyone who engages in insanity like this against innocent people has let the terrorists win. This is what they wanted, and it’s being given to them. This type of lashing out is the exact same mentality held by the people who did the attack in the first place. Let us not be perpetrators of stupid violence done in the name of righteousness.

Calm, people, please be calm.

Thanks, Boing Boing, for gathering up information on what I was afraid was going to happen.
