Disabled Iraq Veteran Just Showed Us How to Shut Down Anti-Muslim Bigotry

“Getting frustrated by some people expecting racism from me, because I got blown up. Here it is:
Yes. A Muslim man blew me up, and I lost my leg.
A Muslim man also lost his arm that day wearing a British Uniform.
A Muslim medic was in the helicopter that took me from the field
A Muslim surgeon performed the surgery that saved my life
A Muslim Nurse was part of the team that helped me when I returned to the UK
A Muslim Healthcare Assistant was part of the team that sorted out my day to day needs in rehabilitation when I was learning to walk A Muslim taxi driver gave me a free ride the first time I went for a beer with my Dad after I came home.
A Muslim doctor offered my Dad comfort and advice in a pub, when he didnt know how to deal with my medicines and side effects. Contrary to that,
A white brit spat in my girlfriends face for ‘#ing a cripple when you could have me [him]’
A White brit pushed my wheelchair away from a lift so he could use it first.
A White brit screamed at my Dad for parking in a disabled bay when I was in the services coming home
(Although, alot of people helped in my recovery! I dont hate white brits either! hahaha)
Point is, # off. I know who I dislike, and I know who I dont. I know who I appreciate, and I know who I dont. If you want to hate an entire race of men and women for the actions of a few dickheads feel free, but don’t push your views on me, thinking I am an easy target because one douchebag decided it was my day to die.
Blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church.
Get a grip of your lives, hug your family and get back to work.”

In case there are those who don't understand. He is saying that hate exist amongst every groups, races or religions.

The anti Muslims talk about how evil..etc they are and meanwhile they are spewing their own hateful and vile opinions and calling for the death and destruction of those people.

And somehow they apparently think they are better than the radicals.

So much hate in this world, do we really need to fight fire with fire? Sure there are radical Muslims who have done horrible things but there also those of different religions/races who have done the same. Do we attack all those people of that race/religion with the same passion as Muslims?

Why do they get a pass ? I think it is because you can make the distinction between radicals and moderates of those specific groups, so why is it so hard for you to do the same when it comes followers of Islam?

Also if you never read or studied the Quran in great depth, do not talk like you know what that faith is all about. Going on a biased website about how evil Muslims are and reading cherry picked or misinterpreted quotes from that book does not mean you know what you are talking about.

As for me, I can only talk about my own experiences. I worked with these people and most were awesome, there were also those who kept to themselves. I also go to school with some and they seem very nice, no classes with them as of yet but from the small interaction we have, they seem respectful. I live by a park and see them with their children...guess what, they laugh, show affection and play with them basically.

What I am basically saying is that they are normal every day people.
