LS Jaun, thanks for the semantics piece. Bigotry is nasty, no matter who's doing it. By your logic, I should blame Jeffrey Dahmer's family for the things he did. While we're blaming a group comprised of millions of people, doesn't it **** you off when black people hold all whites accountable for the acts of the KKK?

The real story is, 'Muslim Family Defended by Non-Muslim Stranger.'

One rude women is put in her place by a stranger standing up for a Muslim family on a train in Australia. Despite the Islamic terrorism in that country, including the recent arrests of four Muslims planning to attack a national memorial service, the woman didn't tolerate singling out the Muslim family.

It's really a fascinating look at how desperate some folks are to find Muslim victims of random bigotry.

That's 100 percent different. The situations you discuss are, in fact, bigotry. In this situation, it's not like blaming all white people for the KKK, it's like blaming a member of the KKK for the kkk. In Australia, no one forces you to be muslim and you can choose the groups you wish to associate with. She chooses a group that crashes planes, makes Christians walk the plank, hangs gays, explodes little boys watching a race, massacres school girls... Well, you get the point.

So they should let the actions of others that they have no control over, as well as the judgment and bigotry from other groups decide how they should lives their lives and express their faith?

Makes sense.

The point of this, is that no one should endure verbal abuse based on their religion. Whatever might have happened or is happening - doesn't have much to do with this individual family.

In regards to pressing charges, I understand this would be based on this stranger touching his wife's head, in any case, she hasn't been identified, and probably won't be so there is most likely nothing further to come out of this story, other than those stupid enough to air their bigotry in public will probably be filmed doing it, and shamed.

Sorry if I don't feel any sympathy when they do this in western countries:

But hey saying a few words to these Muslims is much worse than all the terrorism, rape, murder, violence, unrest and crime Muslims have committed in western counties over the years I guess. >_>




I feel sad that you've been brainwashed to the extent that you would actually feel sympathy for Muslims after all the crap they've done to innocent people around the world in the name of their F**KED UP religion ESPECIALLY since you're a woman.
Yes, because all Muslims are one person. I do think Islam is a ****ed up religion, same as Christianity, and Judaism. However not every individual of these faiths is a bad person. Stop with your obvious bigotry.

Prove that the Muslim family was racist. There is no evidence of racism from them in that video. But keep calling others racist, as you yourself use racial profiling That shows you to be very smart and advanced.

Now if you had said that some of the people that follow the religion are "F***ed up" I would have agreed with you. So please take your racist and extremely limited views of the world somewhere else. No one is impressed by your "immense skills" of being able to post YouTube videos.

I'm glad the woman stood up againest racism and that the couple showed great restraint in dealing with this belligerent lady. Hopefully she is found and dealt with accordingly.
I won't say that Islam is a good religion. It's not racism to say this. Heck, I'm supposed to be killed in Islam. Did you read the wrong book or are you that dense?

With that being said, standing against verbal abuse to innocent humans is NOT justified. These two people sitting in the train were moderates and had nothing to do with anything.
