Violent bigots aren't renowned for their ability to distinguish the finer points of race, culture, and religion.

Yep

Shortly after 9/11 there were several attacks on Sikhs who live in Lane County, Oregon. The attackers made the assumption that because they wear turbans they must be Muslims.

The final straw that ended a pretty good friendship between me and someone else was when he declared on Facebook that "all them Muslims should be shipped back to where they came from".

I've got a friend who was born in Pakistan. Her family left when she was about three because they are Christian and were "encouraged" by the locals to seek a new locale. She was "one of them Muslims".

My friend from high school whose family came from Persia about 4 generations back was "one of them Muslims".

My Lebanese friend and fellow choirboy (no, literally, we sang in The St. Paul's Choir of Men and Boys together) who died when I was 12 in a horrific car accident would have been "one of them Muslims".

The truly ironic thing about the whole situation is that said Facebook poster is a Catholic Irish-American.

The Kirpan is a ceremonial weapon and, frankly, considering that the ignorant bigots often are going about in numbers and armed with firearms, I highly doubt a kirpan would be all that helpful.

That was in India, and that was also at a temple. I don't think Sikhs in America carry swords with them.

Yeah there was a Sikh gas station owner in Mesa Arizona who was murdered on 9/15/01 because some piece of crap wanted to "go out and shoot some towel-heads".

I was under the impression that they were decorative to the extent that many are pinned into their sheaths, rendering them inoperable as a weapon.

The family said they're not sure yet how difficult it will be to replace their citizenship documents

Unless they're forgeries, why would it be hard?

My understanding is that it can range anywhere from a real functional weapon to a piece of small jewelry, depending on the individual and the laws of where they are currently located.

It can take as long as a year (or more) to process and get your replacement document. And sometimes, your application for a replacement certificate may be denied, in which case you're going to spend quite a bit of time appealing it.

The US is a major emigration point for ethnic Assyrians, many of whom who practice one of the various Syriac Christian faiths.  There are also a large number of Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians from the Near and Middle East who have emigrated.

In short, you can't just look at ethnicity and guess their religion.  Unless there is some major cue or they tell you, you just don't know.

The day after 9/11 a Sikh man was shiat and killed in Mesa, AZ at the convenience store he owned because the good ol' boy who shiat him thought the same thing.

It's the store down the street from where my FIL lived, he went there a couple of times a week and said the owner was one of the nicest guys he'd met...

Well maybe if we hadn't gone and Freed The shiat out of them, where we don't belong, we wouldn't have idiot politicians giving them citizenship here, where they don't belong. Derpheads do understand that being the world bully has consequences, yes? No? Maybe?

When did we start invading the world, then inviting the world, over and over?
