RexTalionis: Benevolent Misanthrope: You obviously missed the thread a few days ago when a sword fight broke out in a temple...

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

Rent Party: JesseL: Rent Party: You know, back in the day, Catholics were pretty safe in Iraq, a well represented and respected minority, in fact.  I wonder what happened to drive them out of their native country?

Oil money being funneled into the Wahhabi movement.

I don't think that was it.  I mean, the Iraqi Foreign Minister was a Catholic a while back.  What ever happened to that guy?


Tariq Aziz surrendered to US forces after the invasion, and stood trial for various atrocities committed during the Hussein regime, was found guilty and was sentenced to death by the post-Hussein government, but the new Iraqi President refused to sign the death warrant, leaving him on death row indefinitely.  According to his lawyer, he's in poor/failing health and basically wants to be executed to be put out his misery.

Red Shirt Blues: foxyshadis: Red Shirt Blues: Something is not quite right here. Dude shows up demanding money and gold and tears up citizenship papers.  I hate to be that guy.......but this is all very fishy. Too set....too many props.

Stranger stories have been concocted and carried out in the name of insurance fraud. Let's see how it plays out.

Yep. But I recall this thread when fark turned into the instant "murica, rape culture, men are all  misogynists,
derp" club.
[www.ontopmag.com image 300x200]
Called that one too.


The more ritualistic an attack is, like carving/branding someone, the less likely it is to be true. In this case, just beating the hell out of someone and robbing them isn't too implausible, but I don't recall any recent "trigger" events that would lead to this... so my guess is a very personal attack by someone who hates the wife or husband or both, and the virulent hate for their ethnicity isn't the root cause. Not sure what the husband does for money, but the attacker may have felt screwed over somehow and gone farking nuts over it. Or maybe he just randomly fixated on them as the source of all his problems. Psychotics gonna psychotic.

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.

You know who hated the Sikhs?

Gandhi.

Gecko Gingrich: 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.


Back during the Iranian revolution there were several Persian students that I had classes with, and a few that I worked with. They could never go back home, and their families were massacred. Some idiot or idiots shot a couple of their car windows with bb guns. Stupidity is sad, but abject stupidity should be criminal.

Man, that's the second time I've been schooled today.  Historic temp. averages during summer are no worse than where I live.  But then, the averages don't mean jack any more.  Last week, we had 2 105°  days in a row.

I like how some Farkers immediately think insurance fraud when this family was attacked and robbed.

I wonder if they'd immediately think insurance fraud if it was an Irish family and a non-white criminal beat them up, robbed them and destroyed their family heirlooms.

I live in northern New Mexico and don't own an air conditioner.  And usually don't need one.  Last June was pretty brutal though; we had a fire about 20 miles upwind and couldn't keep the windows open because of the smoke.  I wanted AC then.

RexTalionis: Magorn: ignorant Bigots who attack Sikhs are usually a self-correcting problem as one of the basic tenets of their religion, at least for men, is be armed at all times

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.


You obviously missed the thread yesterday (or today) that proved knives can beat guns hands down every time.

Meanwhile, S. I. Hayakawa, (R-California) was advocating that we gather up all the Iranian students in the US, go out into the desert, dig holes big enough to fit 50 Iranians each, and for every day that Iran didn't release the hostages, cover up another hole. This moron was the President of S.F. State, an actual university with real students and everything.

I was visiting my son this past weekend and my wife and I attended the sunday service at St James Catholic church in downtown Seattle... 10am service had not only a priest, but also a rabbi and a gentleman that they identified in the program as a sufi muslim interfaith leader.  Each said a prayer for peace as part of the ceremony (it was supposed to coincide with Pope Francis meeting with Peres and Abbas)... and it was the most inspirational thing I have witnessed in a church in my entire life.  If all religious services could be more like that I would probably be a more 'religious' person.

I'm not condoning the violence against foreign immigrants, but did they really HAVE to come to America, specifically? I mean there are more, probably more tolerant countries that are accepting of Catholics. Unless they were here before 9-11, but if I were someone of their race or even similar to their race, I would strongly reconsider coming to America after 9-11, and in the wake of the damn near decade long war in the Middle East to boot. Yeah not the best time period to be of Iraqi descent and living in America.

When you're creating refugees by waging war in a foreign country, you are sort of obligated to take in at least some of those refugees. Most of the Iraqi refugees ran to their neighbors, like Jordan and Syria, but Europe has hundred of thousands,, and you take your part of the responsibility like a grown up nation too.

I remember a few years back during the "Ground Zero Mosque" cryfest, there was a group of Egyptian Coptic Christians protesting it in NYC.  The two Copts were physically assaulted by a bunch of white trash from Pennslyvania because they thought they were Muslims.
