The "You Hate Muslims" accusations are always flying. Show us the proof of this supposed hatred? The fact is, it doesn't exist. We're all smarter than that.
I see you only have 71 posts, so I'm going to chalk it up as you are new here, but search these forums for other terrorist threads and you will see the hatred towards all Muslims in those threads. The hate doesn't have to be physical to be hate. Plenty of people on these forums have blamed the entire Muslim religion on these terroristic acts.

Case in point, that bettyfonz poster who interestingly seems to have vanished off the face of the earth here. Gee, too bad.

It's not ALL Muslims, but it's ALWAYS a Muslim.

There are countless good muslims. But the good muslims need to clean house of the radicals. Reform needs to come from within and until that happens the problem of Islamic fundamentalism will continue. There are encouraging signs that moderates are mobilizing to confront the problem. It will not be easy but al least steps are being taken.

This is a postive story that we need to see more of. It shows that not all muslims are terrorists just like not all black people are looters. The bad guys are a small percentage. I believe that the majority of people just want to fit in, get a long in life and leave soemthing positive for their kids.

Good post and a Great quote:
Bathily appeared on BFMTV Saturday night to talk about the harrowing experience. When asked about his heroic acts, he replied, "We are brothers. It's not a question of Jews, of Christians or of Muslims. We're all in the same boat, we have to help each other to get out of this crisis."
Nobody is saying that all Muslims are terrorists. In fact, the vast majority are not. However, the vast majority of Muslims do have a certain degree of sympathy for these Islamic fundamentalists.

You know, I'm kind of tired of the fawning knee-jerk coverage of this guy. It's insulting to Muslims and everybody else, chiefly because it says, "Hey! We found a Muslim who doesn't want to see Jews gunned down in a supermarket!" This guy did the right thing, something I suspect the large majority of us would have done in the same circumstances. So what the adulation does is actually hoist this guy up as the exception to the caricature of Muslim terrorism rather than the rule.

I bet there are plenty of other Jews who wouldn't hire a Muslim. Let's take what we can get, and celebrate whatever we can find that's positive.

I haven't noticed the fawning over this person. However, I can see why he would stand out & why people would want him to stand out, to let people know that no, not all muslims are evil. The people on this forum are exactly the type of people who need this drilled into their heads.
