While Muslims are terrorizing innocent people world wide, here in the United States, Muslim/Islamic Extremists are using our own system to further their own political/religious agenda of dominating the world and turning Christians and Jews into Dhimmis.
We’re one step closer to being dominated by Islam right here in the United States of America and the so called defenders of the Constitution, the ACLU is silent on this one! Apparently, violating Muslim Religious law is considered a Hate Crime in the USA.
Officials at Pace University are caving into the demands of Muslim students and had a man arrested for throwing a Koran in the toilet.
NEW YORK (AP) _ 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.
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 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.
By God if burning my flag is considered Free Speech then so is taking a squirt on this handbook of Islamic Terror. The ACLU considers a crucifix immersed in urine to be freedom of speech and fought tooth and nail for it. A portrait of the Catholic icon, the Virgin Mary in which feces was used as the artists medium was considered a work of art and free speech by the liberal left. Where are the cries of Religious freedom and Free Speech where this one is concerned?
Crucifx submerged in urine= Art
Koran submerged in clean toilet water = Hate Crime
Sadly enough, Jews have played a big role in promoting this idiotic concept.
Like other such bad ideas (e.g. gun control) it just comes back to hurt the people who fought for it.
A crime is not more or less serious because of what other people suspect the perpetrator was thinking.
In the case of injuring a toilet with a koran, I can see charging the perpetrator with damaging property if in fact there was any damage, but that’s the worst case.
Some people think every city should hold a privately organized Koran flushing festival every year on September 11. During this festival we can take a few hours to mourn the human losses at the hands of such a corrupt, violent faith and enumerate historical atrocities inspired by this sad excuse for a holy book.
I personally stand against Hate Crime Legislation. What’s in a persons mind when they kill or maim another human being does not make the crime more or less disgusting and we should not offer specific special interest groups special protection based on race, religion or sexual preferences.
It seems our once great country is devolving into a banana republic. Can anything be done? Short answer is no. Too many special interests are vested in the type of miscarriage of justice discussed in this thread. Law enforcement has created a vast array of drug laws that deprive us of property and freedom, the hate merchant/race lobby has passed these idiotic “hate” crime laws that has effectively destroyed the concept of “double jeopardy”, & the various Prosecuters use any of the above 2 loopholes to destroy anyone they want. Without the citizens of the United States stepping foward and saying “Enough is enough!” we are doomed to be dominated by Islam and the thought police of the Liberal Left.
Christopher Hitchens wants to know why the whole world is afraid of offending Muslims:
Before me is a recent report that a student at Pace University in New York City has been arrested for a hate crime in consequence of an alleged dumping of the Quran. Nothing repels me more than the burning or desecration of books, and if, for example, this was a volume from a public or university library, I would hope that its mistreatment would constitute a misdemeanor at the very least. But if I choose to spit on a copy of the writings of Ayn Rand or Karl Marx or James Joyce, that is entirely my business. When I check into a hotel room and send my free and unsolicited copy of the Gideon Bible or the Book of Mormon spinning out of the window, I infringe no law, except perhaps the one concerning litter. Why do we not make this distinction in the case of the Quran? We do so simply out of fear, and because the fanatical believers in that particular holy book have proved time and again that they mean business when it comes to intimidation. Surely that should be to their discredit rather than their credit. Should not the “moderate” imams of On Faith have been asked in direct terms whether they are, or are not, negotiating with a gun on the table?
The Pace University incident becomes even more ludicrous and sinister when it is recalled that Islamists are the current leaders in the global book-burning competition. After the rumor of a Quran down the toilet in Guantanamo was irresponsibly spread, a mob in Afghanistan burned down an ancient library that (as President Hamid Karzai pointed out dryly) contained several ancient copies of the same book. Not content with igniting copies of The Satanic Verses, Islamist lynch parties demanded the burning of its author as well. Many distinguished authors, Muslim and non-Muslim, are dead or in hiding because of the words they have put on pages concerning the unbelievable claims of Islam. And it is to appease such a spirit of persecution and intolerance that a student in New York City has been arrested for an expression, however vulgar, of an opinion.
This has to stop, and it has to stop right now. There can be no concession to sharia in the United States. When will we see someone detained, or even cautioned, for advocating the burning of books in the name of God? If the police are honestly interested in this sort of “hate crime,” I can help them identify those who spent much of last year uttering physical threats against the republication in this country of some Danish cartoons. In default of impartial prosecution, we have to insist that Muslims take their chance of being upset, just as we who do not subscribe to their arrogant certainties are revolted every day by the hideous behavior of the parties of God.
It is often said that resistance to jihadism only increases the recruitment to it. For all I know, this commonplace observation could be true. But, if so, it must cut both ways. How about reminding the Islamists that, by their mad policy in Kashmir and elsewhere, they have made deadly enemies of a billion Indian Hindus? Is there no danger that the massacre of Iraqi and Lebanese Christians, or the threatened murder of all Jews, will cause an equal and opposite response? Most important of all, what will be said and done by those of us who take no side in filthy religious wars? The enemies of intolerance cannot be tolerant, or neutral, without inviting their own suicide. And the advocates and apologists of bigotry and censorship and suicide-assassination cannot be permitted to take shelter any longer under the umbrella of a pluralism that they openly seek to destroy.
This story has really touched a nerve among Americans who value free speech and refuse to be bullied by CAIR and the MSA and their Islamic Masters who want to dominate the west.
I for one am not afraid of CAIR and my message to them is that they can kiss my fat hair ass!
