SOURCE: Recently a nice Muslim fellow from Chicago by the name of Mohammad Alkaramla was convicted of sending bomb threats to a Jewish High School. Like most serial killers, his neighbors described him as peaceful and friendly. Just the sort of chap you want to invite to a barbecue or a bombing. His defense was that he wasn’t threatening to kill Jewish students because he was the follower of a bigoted religion, but because he was upset over his ex-wife leaving to return home to Jordan.
Mohammad Alkaramla joins a long list of Muslim terrorists who did what they did only because of “personal problems”. There was that great guy with the Facebook profile who only tried to set off a car bomb in Times Square because of a home foreclosure. And a devoted army psychiatrist in Fort Hood who tried to kill a bunch of soldiers because he had contracted PTSD from the drinking water in Texas. But the media was quick to assure us in every case, that these weren’t Muslim terrorists. Just distraught homeowners and workplace shooters who happened to be “Murdering While Muslim”.
But Mohammad didn’t threaten violence against his ex-wife’s lawyer or Royal Jordanian Airlines. Instead he threatened to blow up a Jewish High School which in all likelihood had nothing to do with his ex-wife leaving him. Instead his message read, “Will Give You until 01.15.2009 to back OFF from Gaza in Palestine or will set our explosive in your areas”. This was not the message of an angry ex-husband, but of an angry Muslim.
In one of the more ridiculous defenses, his father claimed that Mo A. was worried about his wife and son living near Gaza. “He went crazy like with stress. … He thinks Gaza is by Jordan. All he knows is what he sees on the TV.” There’s just one problem with this defense. Mohammad Alkaramla is actually from Jordan. So for this to be true, Mohammad would have to be clueless about the nearby geography of his own country. And since most Jordanians are actually Palestinian Arabs, and Jordan at one point annexed the West Bank, but not Gaza, this is one of the least plausible defenses ever.
But apparently we’re expected to believe that Mohammad could take the time to research Jewish targets for his hate– but not the area where his wife and son were going to be living.
Meanwhile Oregon saw another Mohammed, this one named Mohamed O. Mohamud, plot to blow up a Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Naturally the media suggested that he suffered from bullying and anger over his parent’s divorce. And no matter how many times Mohamed O. Mohamud was quoted as saying that he wanted to kill Americans in the name of Islam, the media refused to accept it. Forget Islam, the boy was clearly upset over some completely unrelated things. Just like Mohammad Alkaramla and all the other Mohammad’s and Mohammed’s and Mohamud’s out there. And by the time his trial rolls out, his lawyers may convince him that should be his defense. Even if he doesn’t agree, they may present it anyway.
The best ally of such defense strategies is that “Murdering While Muslim” is also the official position of the authorities, who still pretend that being a Muslim is a somehow incidental factor to engaging in Muslim terrorism. Accordingly we don’t profile Muslims at airports, because absolutely anyone could be a Muslim terrorist. Except an actual Muslim. And so we strip search Christian 6 year olds just to be on the safe side. The safe side being the side that doesn’t offend Muslims, who are not by any means the people trying to blow up the planes.
