The Left Shows its True Self-Again

A religious extremist targets and kills a man because he disapproves of the victim’s vocation. There is an immediate outcry from the Left, who distain people of faith. Apparently not.

The victim is Pvt. William Long, a military recruiter, and the murderer is Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad a convert to Islam. Cassy Fiano writes:

A 23-year-old convert to Islam with “political and religious motives” killed a soldier just out of basic training and wounded another in a targeted attack on a military recruiting center in Arkansas, police said.
The suspect, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, reportedly had been under investigation by an FBI joint terrorism task force after he traveled to Yemen and was arrested there for using a Somali passport. The probe was in its early stages and based on Muhammad’s trip to Yemen, according to ABC News.

While there, Muhammad — a U.S. citizen from Memphis who is a convert to Islam and was previously known as Carlos Bledsoe — studied jihad with an Islamic scholar, Jihadwatch.org reported.

Muhammad told authorities that he approached the recruiting center in Little Rock by car on Monday and started shooting at two soldiers in uniform, according to a police report.

The obvious conclusion is that the Left is quite comfortable picking and choosing which faiths are subject to condemnation and which are not. Christians and Jews = bad; Muslims = good. All those people who rushed to their blogs to spew hate towards Christians after George Tiller was murdered on Sunday are suddenly sitting on their hands. Of course there is another factor in play-Pvt. Long’s vocation. The Left has long held that the men and women who serve our country in the military are "fair game".

Finally, where is the Commander in Chief’s condemnation of Pvt. Long’s murder? It certainly calls into question Obama’s character that he would speak out against the murder of a man who performed late term abortions but offer no words comfort for the family of a murdered soldier.

Once again, the hypocrisy of the left is on full display. I would suggest that they take a look in the mirror but I doubt they are capable of seeing their own reflection.
