Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Jihadis: Evidence doesn’t count if racism was involved

Borrowing a page from the O.J. Simpson trial, the Muslim USF students who were found with explosives materials in their car are arguing that the material can’t be used against them because the arresting officers are racist.  Ignoring the fact that Islam is a religion and not a race, and ignoring the fact that evidence doesn’t incinerate upon succesfully proven claims of racism, we see this from Jihad Watch:

Naive Kids Update: it seems that the arresting officer in South Carolina, who found pipe bomb materials in the trunk of the car being driven by Ahmed Mohamed and Youseff Megahed, said, “Damn terrorist. I think they’re part of the **** Taliban….Maybe they’re gonna practice the suicide bombing here.”

He also evidently noted their race as “Islamic,” which should endear him to the politically correct crowd that continues to insist that opposition to the global jihad constitutes racism, but in this case it has gotten him in hot water, because — as the newscaster says, in probably the first time this has been acknowledged in the mainstream media — “of course we all know that’s not a race, that’s a religion.”

Question: If this cop is a vile Bull Connor-type racist, does that make the pipe bomb evidence vanish?

Meanwhile, Ahmed Bedier of the Council on American Islamic Relations is speaking out here. He is affiliated with an organization that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas funding case, has had several of its officials convicted on terror-related charges, and was founded by members of an organization that was named by a Muslim Brotherhood operative as part of its “grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house.”

Here, he is saying that the pipe bomb evidence should be thrown out because apparently the police officers found a Qur’an in the car and thought that suspicious, while they would not have thought a Bible in the car to be suspicious. Of course, Bedier would not want you to recall that Muslims all over the world are committing violence and justifying it by reference to the Qur’an, that suicide bombers pose with rifles and the Qur’an before they go to kill and be killed for Allah (cf. Qur’an 9:111), and that the Qur’an, unlike the Bible, contains open-ended commands for believers to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers (cf. Qur’an 9:29). Just forget all that, and chant “racism…racism…racism,” and pretty soon you’ll have come around to the illustrious Mr. Bedier’s point of view. 

Were the case in Los Angeles and one of the arresting officers Mark Fuhrman, they may have had a chance.  But with a lawyer who works for a terrorism front group, their chances at beating the rap are slimmer than Ted Kennedy’s chances at sobriety.

  1. If you say “racism” three times in a row, will Al Sharpton appear?

  2. If the explosive vest does not fit…

  3. Without having evaluated all of the facts and assuming that the evidence was obtained via a warrantless search, I have the sense that something other than a Quran inside the car prompted the officers to believe that a search of the entire vehicle was necessary in a manner that complied with the warrantless exceptions for vehicle searches.

    Trying to use racism to damage the case for probable cause? Sounds pretty third-rate to me.
