Media Reporting on the slaughter of a NJ Coptic family colored by pro-Islam bias Story dated 31 January 2005
Consider the facts. The father was a Coptic Christian who engaged in energetic debates with Muslims online. His daughter was just as outspoken. They both have tried to convince Muslims to become Christian. The father received death threats for this from Islamists. "Islamic law, the Sharia, has traditionally made it a capital offense both for a Muslim to leave Islam, and for a non-Muslim to attempt to convert a Muslim." And there has been at least one report that "an imam in Jersey City declared this Christian family's blood "halal," (i.e., licit to shed), because of their proselytizing activities among Muslims." There are reports that nothing of value was taken -- all the jewelry was still in the house.
The media and the investigators refuse to suggest, even in the face of all this evidence, that the murder may have been an act of Islamic jihad. Preposterous, you say? Okay, substitute 'Coptic' for 'Black' or 'Jewish' in each news story, and likewise substitute 'Muslim' and 'Islam' for 'white supremist' and 'white supremacy'. What do you suppose the media and the investigators would be speculating about then?
It might not be so much a pro-Muslim bias as a politically correct need not to be seen as anti-Muslim. Of course, since Muslims are not white Christians, the media, if they speculated that the murder was an act of Islamic jihad, would be branded as anti-Muslim even if the evidence that it was an act of jihad were irrefutable.
"Investigators in Jersey City have yet to announce the motive for the murder of the Armanious family. But if it turns out that the murder or murders were religiously-motivated Muslims, with whom will the media sympathize: those grieving for the victims or those who attend the same hate-filled mosques as the murderers? Is there any doubt?"
