Jihad or Criminal

Reader comment on item: Jihad or Criminality?

As when the perp is black, noting that he is a muslim is considered "things that must not be said".

Though there's no way to tell if any of the examples have anything to do with "jihad" or that these people are, indeed, muslims, it could be argued that any time a muslim kills or commits an act of violence against another it is in the pursuit of jihad. You can come to this conclusion simply going by the description of jihad by the apologists themselves!

I wonder if there is a way to determine how many with middle eastern sounding names have been murdered by guys named "Smith" (who were not black), for instance?

Muslims always seem to be worried about discrimination based on their ideology or backlash when muslims are involved in terrorism. I know there is some discrimination, that's a given, though it is far, far less than that perpetrated upon Jews.

But, like white on black crime (where race is the reason for the crime), I'll bet there is very little white on muslim crime for the same reason. In fact, I'd be willing to put money on the muslim on white ratio being higher than population numbers would suggest.
