Right on! ISLAMIC ACTIVISM = "Victims R Us"!

Reader comment on item: [Brandon Mayfield Case:] "If You Are Muslim, You Are Suspect"

Submitted by John Brock (Germany), Jun 4, 2004 at 13:14

After he was releaqsed, Mayfield said, "I have been singled out and discriminated against, I feel, as a Muslim."

This is very consistent with islamic sunnah. Muhammad was always preaching a theology of victimizaion, and Mayfield has bought into that psyche. It's like giving a double take to a woman wearing a hijab or a man wearing a muslim longshirt -- they have stood out by not assimmilating, yet they feel they are victims. If they didn't act differently they would feel that their road to Paradise was jeopardized. Therefore all muslims MUST declare their victimhood.
