I checked the Muslim Girl blog to see if someone had made asinine comments on Abdul Razaq Ali Artan.
Somali-American. Your family fled the civil war, much like mine. Your story read like so many others before you, and that made it so much harder to read. You were not a bad person, Abdul Razak.
Abdul Artan (after hitting people with a car and stabbing innocents): not a bad person.
What happened after the Artan family came to the U.S.? Reports say he was born in a refugee camp, and came to the United States two years ago. And so I am asking, who has asked him about the trauma he encountered? You do not escape civil war without psychological trauma. Who welcomed the family? Who took them to counseling? Who made them feel welcome? We rally for refugees but what do we do for the refugees that are less “trendy?” We saw an outpour of support for refugees in this last year. But did we treat refugees from all countries equally? I think we all know the answer to that.
I think she's speaking to the failings of the Muslims in America in this case. Let's take it seriously. The very fact that Artan didn't seek, or wasn't granted, refuge in an Islamic country proves the naivety of her argument. She expects Muslims in America to be welcoming and nice to a black African!
Arabs think of blacks as slaves. They don't mingle with them. Period. One of the funniest videos about the true reality of Muslims went like this: a black dude goes to perform the haj in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. He's all emotional from the experience as he speaks to the camera. He prays near the Kaaba and then goes outside to stay in one of the tents set up by the government.
Suddenly, a guard stops him. This tent is for Arabs! Your slave-nigger tent is over there. This black guy couldn't believe it. He just prayed with all sorts of people from around the world in one mosque but outside, a kilometer away, there's racial segregation! I'm sure he felt really welcomed.
This is why we have distinct nations. Putting black muzzies next to racist, intolerant non-black muzzies just leads to the detonation of said unpleasant black muzzies. It would be better for Americans to simply not import the die-verse, bloody idiots.
I don't think Muslim Girl expected that logical conclusion to her argument.
