A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Beyond Words

Well, not exactly…but I’m stunned by this.  A reprehensible act?  Probably.  A crime?  Absolutely not…no more than the “Piss Christ” that was lauded as “art” nearly 20 years ago.

 Hate-crime arrests in Quran desecrations at Pace University

A 23-year-old man was arrested Friday on hate-crime charges after he threw a Quran in a toilet at Pace University on two separate occasions, police said.

Stanislav Shmulevich of Brooklyn was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and aggravated harassment, both hate crimes, police said. It was unclear if he was a student at the school. A message left at the Shmulevich home was not immediately returned.  

Bear in mind that these charges, as hate crimes, are FELONIES. 

The Islamic holy book was found in a toilet at Pace’s lower Manhattan campus by a teacher on Oct. 13. A student discovered another book in a toilet on Nov. 21, police said. Muslim activists had called on Pace University to crack down on hate crimes after the incidents. As a result, the university said it would offer sensitivity training to its students.

The whole idea of a hate crime is ludicrous.  All crimes come from malicious intent…why make try to make an act more illegal based on what the perpetrator was supposedly thinking when the crime was committed? 

What are the chances that Muslims will be subjected to “sensitivity training” regarding the icons and beliefs of other religions?

The school was accused by Muslim students of not taking the incident seriously enough at first. Pace classified the first desecration of the holy book as an act of vandalism, but university officials later reversed themselves and referred the incident to the New York Police Department’s hate crimes unit. The incidents came amid a spate of vandalism cases with religious or racial overtones at the school. In an earlier incident on Sept. 21, the school reported another copy of the Quran was found in a library toilet, and in October someone scrawled racial slurs on a student’s car at the Westchester County satellite campus and on a bathroom wall at the campus in lower Manhattan. Police did not connect Shmulevich to those incidents.

No mention of what these “racial slurs” were…or that they were accompanied by a swastika.

Treatment of the Quran is a sensitive issue for Muslims, who view the book as a sacred object and mistreating it as an offense against God. The religion teaches that the Quran is the direct word of God.  

“Sensitive issue”?  Since when does anyone in the U.S. deserve the right not to be offended?

[…]

Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the national CAIR office in Washington, D.C., has said the organization receives frequent reports of Quran desecrations in the United States, especially postings on Internet sites, but seldom makes them public.

How does one desecrate the Quran on the internet?  By asserting that it’s false?  Guilty here!!

 He said CAIR decided to speak out about the Pace incidents because Muslim students are impacted by the creation of what could be viewed as a hostile campus environment. 

And, in what HAS to be one of the most irresponsible acts EVER by a the media, his name and photograph were published in several newspapers in New York, and he and his mother were ambushed outside the court by reporters.

 

Great job guys…he’ll probably be decapitated within the week.
