A 56-year-old Londoner faced five hours of surgery to repair the knife attack by Muhyadin Mire, 29, in London's subway system. As police took the attacker away, someone in the crowd shouted, "You ain't no Muslim, bruv."Liberals on both sides of the Atlantic seized upon this as proof positive that every Muslim in the world condemns terrorism.
From the New York Times:
LONDON — Two days after a knife attack in a London subway station left one man seriously injured and prompted a terrorism investigation, Prime Minister David Cameron praised the reaction of one bystander, who told the attacker, “You ain’t no Muslim, bruv.”See? Proof positive that a billion Muslims are peaceful.
Except the person who shouted "You ain't no Muslim, bruv" is no Muslim. In fact, he cannot use his full name -- even though the prime minister heralded his words -- for fear of an attack by actual Muslims.
From the Telegraph:
Now the man behind the comments has said he fears retribution from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) - also known as Isis - after their popularity.
But the 39-year-old security guard from north London -- named only as John as he asked for his surname to be withheld -- said he has the support of his family.
"I've got a kid, he's 20," he told the Sunday Times. "He just said, 'Dad, you've done the right thing'. I said what I had to say, and for someone to agree that is close to me made me feel good."
John is not Muslim himself, but said he is angry that terrorist groups such as Isil claim to represent Islam.
"Isis should be wiped out, because they're not Muslims, because Muslims don't do that," he said. "It's as simple as that.
"For people to be like that, they've obviously got stone hearts, they don't care about society. They don't care about anyone. They're evil, pure evil."The incident reveals the wishful thinking of the socialists who project onto the Muslim man their own values. The enemy of mine enemy and all that. It is peculiar.
Once again, a liberal narrative has crumbled. Muslims in London are not rising to speak out against terrorism, likely out of fear, but also out of sympathy. Pretending John speaks for Muslims is a dangerous luxury we no longer can afford.
