WND Upset The Muslims It Victimized Are Feeling Victimized
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Jack Minor writes in an April 18 WorldNetDaily article:

While the hunt continues for those responsible for the brutal terrorist attack on Patriot’s Day in Boston, Muslim groups and their supporters already have part of the answer: They are the victims.

In an email this week, the Council on American-Islamic Relations – an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist-finance case in U.S. history – linked to a story in Religion News Service titled, “U.S. Muslims mobilize to prevent Boston backlash.”

Minor doesn't mention that one of the chief instigators of blaming Muslims for the Boston bombings is WND.

WND was quick to forward unproven, anonymous claims that Islamists were behind the bombings, even as it frowned upon speculation that right-wingers were behind them. WND's Aaron Klein libelously suggested a Saudi national who was questioned by police after the bombing (and cleared of any wrongdoing) is a terrorist. And WND promoted the discredited claim that the Saudi national was being deported.

Minor uncritically repeats those last two claims in his article, thus further victimizing the very same Muslims he's criticizing for fighting against victimization.

It must be nice to live like Minor does in a world of complete self-unawareness. But then, WND is not paying Minor to look at this objectively.
