Notice that the media had not played up the religion of 15-year-old Boy Scout Mohammed Jaisham Ibrahim. He saved the president of Maldives by grabbing the attackers knife.
Why is it when a Muslim commits a crime that Islam is blamed, yet a heroic act isn't? You know how hard it was to find this kid's picture? Of course it would be stupid at this stage to expect any form of professionalism from media elites.
I'm working on a post about honor killings, which the usual suspects claim is an Islamic custom. I will demonstrate that not only is "honor killing" a global problem, but one which is very common amongst non-Muslims, particularly westerners. In fact, I will go as far as to say the "honor killings" are as American as apple pie. That should be provocative enough. Its time to set the record straight, and reclaim the discourse by the horns, and other areas if necessary.
In the meantime I would urge fellow bloggers to distribute this young man's picture on their blogs.
