Insulting Muslims for fun

Amren recently linked to a story about a Canadian journalist who was punched by a Muslim woman for (allegedly) taking her photo in public.  I quote:

A Canadian journalist was ‘punched in the face’ by a Muslim woman after accidentally taking her picture in a public square.

Writing in his column, David Menzies said he was with his nine year old son in Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square testing out a new digital camera when a woman in a hijab approached him shouting that he could not take a picture of her.

The popular car columnist then says he was punched in the head by the woman and surrounded by a group of people shouting Arabic at him. A police officer then refused to press charges.

Relaying the incident in the Toronto Sun, Mr Menzies said: ‘Suddenly, a woman wearing a hijab ran toward me.

‘She was part of a group that included two women wearing full face-covering burkas. She was screaming: ‘We are Muslim! You do not take pictures of us!’ (Odd. I can’t find the “no photos” rule in the Qur’an.)

‘I informed the lady I was in a public square in a democracy. I can actually take pictures of whomever I please.

‘And then: Ka-pow! Her fist collided with my face. Worse, she almost knocked my new camera from my hands.

‘My son and I were then surrounded by a mob of about 20 people, many of whom were speaking Arabic.

The officer at the scene refused to file charges against the woman.  It occurred to me that people who are easily offended are only asking to be offended more.  We should photograph Muslims, as they go about their business in public, and then post those photos online.  By doing so, not only would we have the satisfaction of knowing that we are causing anguish to the Muslims who would assault us for exercising our freedoms, but by doing so, we would be protecting those very freedoms.

To the Muslim woman’s statement, “You do not take pictures of us!”, I reply that I ordinarily would not be inclined to photograph Muslims – but, since you put it that way, I certainly shall take your picture!  Not all Muslims feel this way about photography; while in Brunei and Egypt, nobody hassled me about taking their photos.  In fact, many people even appreciated it and smiled for the camera.  But we can always hope that the lunatics, of the sort that attacked Mr. Menzies, will see the online photos and be enraged.  Then it would be worth the effort.

    This is new to me I have never heard of the no photographing muslims before. I know that among certain people who believe in voodoo they believe that a photograph will steal their soul so they don’t want to be photographed. I wonder if muslims believe the same thing.

    Nah, SOJ. Just another example of us slowly losing our rights to “others”.

    If a Muslim woman is wearing a damned burka, what does is matter if you take her picture? No one can see her ugly face anyway. That reporter should have kicked her in the cunt. And I bet that is allowed in the Koran.

  4. Look honey tits, I don’t wanna take pictures of you cause I can already guess what you look like under that mountain of cloth. No, give me a nice Irish gal and you can go right along your way. Ah salaam a lama.

      I can only comment on the articles, not the book, since I have not read it. But it seems to be a screed written in the heat of the historical moment. This sort of interethnic hatred feeds upon itself.

    he should’ve punched her back — or at least given her a good shove. i would’ve! self-defense, after all. and he should go after that policeman for not filing charges. wth*ck?!

    • Shoulda woulda coulda. The only shoulda is moving towards woulda as what we coulda we didn’t do and that is to exile them from our society. Conversion = YOU LEAVE NOW because you’ve demonstrated yourself incapable of rational thought.

    Sorry to sidetrack this thread but I just wanted to aware you about the madness that is now occuring over at the Wall Street Journal. They are now talking about the inability of Black women to get a man instead of real substantive economic issues. Check out the link below.

    • That is a real substantive economic argument. Men are the ones that provide, and when women are forced to provide for themselves we end up with welfare states and daddy government stripping men of their ability to provide. It has already started to move from the black community to the white.

    I agree. Photograph Muslims as much as possible — preferably while you’re eating a ham sandwich (practicing Jews exempt) and walking a dog. It’s an Islamophobic trifecta.

  8. destructure says:

    The woman was with a large group who was getting worked up. A group like that could have easily killed both the victim and the officer. So neither had much control over the situation. The officer should have just taken everyone’s identification and charged her after the fact. It’s not that big of a deal. It’s just that getting away with assault and battery because an officer was intimidated by a large group sets a bad precedent.
