Berkley East Seems To Get It. Now.

On the day that Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar is going to have his first day in court for 9 counts of attempted murder, students at UNC Chapel Hill will be active

Protests are planned for Monday in the same area of campus at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where, authorities said, a former student plowed a sport utility vehicle into nine people Friday afternoon.

The College Republicans, Americans for an Informed Democracy and the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies are sponsoring the event, scheduled for 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Monday in “The Pit,” a central area of the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. The event is open to the public and free of charge.

 

Police said Mohammad Taheri-azar, a 2005 UNC-Chapel Hill graduate, admits he acted to “avenge the death of Muslims around the world.” UNC police and local authorities, however, say they have not taken a stance on that interpretation, but are simply repeating what the suspect has told them.

 

UNC-Chapel Hill student leaders said that Monday’s protest is aimed at the reluctance of the university to label Friday’s incident as an act of terrorism.

Terrorist act or not, what we have here is another Muslim showing us that his religion pushes the tenents to commit violent acts in the name of Allah and Mohammed. And what do the UNC-CH Muslims have to say:

 Amid the allegations that the incident was politically motivated, the Muslim Student Association put out a press release late Friday.

“Regardless of what his intentions prove to be, we wholeheartedly deplore this action, and trust that our fellow classmates will be able to dissociate the actions of this one disturbed individual from the beliefs of the Muslim community as a whole.”

“Our relationship with him was limited to the few appearances he made in a prayer room,” the statement also read.

Your relationship to him is immaterial. He was acting, on his own words, for revenge for the Mohammad cartoons. One quick sentence saying you “deplore the actions” followed by some ass covering doesn’t say a whole lot to the majority of us who hear about Muslims generally when they have committed violent acts or spoken out against something (the USA, Christians, Bush, freedom, etc.) Until the Muslim community speaks up en mass, there is no reason for the violent, extreme ones to stop what they are doing.
