Scotland: Muslim Shopkeeper Killed

An alternate title for this post, given my preceding post, would be “Differences Between Islam & Christianity – Pt. 731,285”.

I’m constantly hearing about how ‘hate crimes’ against Muslims living in the West is on the rise, but I can’t ever to find an instance of such a Muslim being killed.

We finally have one! Though, I suspect it will be forgotten in a day or two.

LONDON –  Scottish police say the killing of a Muslim shopkeeper who wished Christians a happy Easter is being investigated as “religiously prejudiced.”

Vigils were held Friday night in memory of 40-year-old Asad Shah, who was killed Thursday night in Glasgow.

He had apparently posted messages on Facebook calling for religious harmony: “Good Friday and very happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation x!”

Ah, he must have been killed by one of those warped and dangerous Christians we know are all about us, fomenting hate and intolerance.

Police say a 32-year-old man has been arrested in connection with Shah’s death. The suspect, who police say is Muslim, has not been identified or charged.

Oh, well, there’s that.

And it goes without saying that, were Asad Shah killed by a Christian or white Scottish hooligan, we would all be hearing about it for a week straight on CNN.
