South Koreans vs. Muslims, part 3

I wrote two postings contrasting the visceral shame and embarrassment that South Koreans experienced after the VA Tech massacre compared to the infantile abdication of responsibility that Muslims exhibited after 9/11.

A wonderful example of exactly this kind of puerile Muslim reaction can be seen in this article in the PakTribune by Ahmer Muzammil, where the author attempts to contrast US reaction to a South Korean nutcase with his fantasy of how Americans would have reacted if the shooter had been a Muslim:
Would it have changed the fact that this was a deeply disturbed not to mention chronically ill man? Would the media, neo-cons and Zionists react in the same manner? Would there be plans to attack another Muslim country even though it had nothing what so ever to do with the heinous crime? Is South Korea where CHO hailed from a clear and present danger now and hence should be the beneficiary of Daisy Cutters and other “Marvels of Science” that we have invented for the well-being of human race? If you are able to answer these questions honestly than it should become obvious, that we live in a very sad, hypocritical, prejudice and bigoted world.

In addition to the international dynamic, domestically speaking all things being as they are now, only If CHO had been Muslim, even a non practicing one at that, you can rest assure that there would have been mass arrests, migrations and intimidation of Muslims thru out the country. There would have been threatening phone calls to the masajids, our sisters who wear Hijab would have been harassed. The MSA’s(Muslim Students Association) would have received threats; Muslim women on campus would have been scared because most of them are identifiable thru their head-covering.
Strawman arguments are but one aspect of an immature person; but the fact that even after 9/11 very little of his imagined harassment happened shows how utterly deranged many Muslims are. Here we have a textbook case of showing how Muslims as a whole cannot distinguish fact from fiction.

After some irrelevant blather, he comes to a punch line:
I realize that there are militants out there that are driven by there interpretation of Islam, however my question is that is Islam the driving force behind it or is it some form of injustice somewhere that is the catalyst? For way too long we have avoided these uncomfortable questions maybe because the Zionist lobby in Washington realizes that if this conversation starts then there jig would be up.
Can one even find a better example of infantilism than this "argument"? Instead of taking responsibility for his fellow Muslims, as the South Koreans did with the shooter, he circles around to blaming the victims instead - for their perceived "injustice" that is as imaginary as his litany of how the US would expel thousands of Muslims had the shooter been Muslim.

Thanks, Mr. Muzammil, for illustrating my point about the immaturity of most Muslims so perfectly.
