Beards are seen as a sign of manhood in many Middle Eastern countries, and the Wahhabi see trimming it or maintaining it in any way a sin. It's not the same everywhere though, and from what I've read some don't put any importance on beards.

I find it quite difficult to recognise what is happening to our liberal society. We are being set upon by a religious intolerance that has not been in Europe for a very long time. Very worrying.
Liberals are what is happening to our liberal society - liberal and progressive intolerance
Since liberals, socialists and progressives have started the crusade against "politically incorrect" speech and started forcing people out of jobs, etc for saying certain words or expressing certain thoughts
intolerance has been growing and growing
The more you say
"you can't say ........." or else
the more other people join in on the intolerance
Our current liberal/progressive insistence on not saying anything to offend anyone at any time or doing anything to offend anyone at anytime has led to the deepest and ugliest sort of intolerance since the dark ages.
For heavens sake we are now trying to put bakers in jail for not wanting to bake certain types of cake, all in the name of tolerance
How intolerant is that, especially when there are other options
like going to another baker
or even protesting
rather than taking them to court
The new liberalism/progressiveism espoused by the Democratic party in particular
is starting to look like a new form of inquisition
Believe as we do .... or else.... suffer the consequences...which become more dire by the day
That sort of rhetoric around the media and around the world
has led to everyone hunkering down and being more intolerant than ever.
All because the liberals and progressives insist that being offended be turned into a crime,
and be viewed as not acceptable and punishable.
The new liberal society has taught it's members to be easily offended
and to take action when offended,
and people who are offended are doing just that
in more and more ludicrous ways
which are NOT derided by the MSM or the liberal politicians
certain groups when offended are given a pass by liberal politicians to act out in the most egregious ways

I'm getting real tired of seeing all this Muslim violence. Yes, I know that people of all races and religions commit violent acts. All I'm saying is I'm fed up with these so called "moderate" muslims and their apologist liberal defenders.
Is there any actual evidence to show that this attack was done by Muslims...moderate or radical ?...other than sensational news outlets who can redact their crap when proven otherwise ?
Why would he refuse to identify his assailants, claiming it would only add fuel to the fire? What fire to you suppose he was referring to? I suspect it to be the raging fire of anti-Islamic sentiment which is growing daily. If these sensationalist news outlets are trying to fuel these flames, they're definitely succeeding. I for one happen to share those sentiments. Feel free to call me a racist, islamophobe, or whatever else you'd like. Your opinion of me is quite irrelevant I assure you.
