A recent story from FOX News nearly fits the criteria of being a hit for a liberal blog.Muslim victim? Check. Killed for expression of a religious idea? Check.
It’s almost the perfect “Islamophobia” story – except there are just a few other details…A popular shopkeeper who wished Christians a happy Easter on Facebook was stabbed to death in what police in Scotland say was a “religiously prejudiced” attack carried out by a fellow Muslim, it was reported Saturday.
A vigil was held Friday night in Glasgow’s Shawlands neighborhood in memory of Asad Shah who was killed the day before– a few hours after he apparently posted messages on Facebook that said “Good Friday and very happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation.”
Police said a 32-year-old man has been arrested in connection with Shah’s death. Police said the suspect is Muslim. He was not been identified.The religion of peace strikes again.
And don’t think the killer doesn’t have support. The most senior Imam in Scotland described the killer as “a ‘brother’ and a ‘true Muslim’ appearing to support the murder of perceived apostates.” He later claimed he was taken out of context.
Something tells me this is a hate crime surrounding a Muslim that the liberal media will conveniently ignore.
