Muslims in Europe are often exposed to bias, discrimination and violence that strengthen their social isolation, European Commissioner for Human Rights Nils Muiznieks said on Tuesday.–Europe biased against Muslims – ombudsman  (I’m afraid we will never be able to make the Muslims like us….)

SOFIA – A deadly attack that killed five Israeli tourists in Bulgaria is leaving Bulgarian Muslims feeling victimized over a plethora of media reports linking the sizable minority and their faith to violence.

“Days of the terrorist attack in Burgas, the Bulgarian media irresponsibly keep publishing opinions about a potential link of the Bulgarian Muslims and their cooperation in the conducting of the terrorist attack and a threat of new similar actions,” the office of Bulgaria’s Chief Mufti Mustafa Hadzhi said in a statement cited by Sofia News Agency.

“We are deeply worried by the fact that these unfounded media insinuations are occurring during the Holy Month of Ramadan.”

Religion and Violence (Special Folder)

At least six people, including five Israeli tourists were killed when a self-bomber blew himself up in a bus at Burgas airport, Burgas airport, a popular gateway for tourists visiting Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast.

Among those killed in the attack was the bus driver, Mustafa Kisyov, who is a Muslim from southeastern Bulgaria.

Israel has accused Iran and Hizbullah group of masterminding the attack.

Since the attack, the Bulgarian media has linked Bulgarian Muslims to the attack.

The Bulgarian Muslims have become a “moral victim of the society and the media through incompetent and biased manipulative insinuations,” Hadzhi, the Chief Mufti, said.

“It is perplexing why the government, politicians, public figures, and academia have not expressed a position regarding this deep injustice.”

Bulgaria is the only EU state where Muslims are not recent immigrants but a centuries-old local community.

Mostly ethnic Turkish descendants of the Ottoman Empire’s reach into Europe, Muslims make up 12 percent of Bulgaria’s 7.6 million population.

Muslims have lived with Christians of the Orthodox Church in relative harmony for centuries in a culture known as “komshuluk”, or neighborly relations.

Un-Islamic

The Chief Mufti has rejected any link between the attack and Muslims, stressing that Islam bans violence against innocents.

“Terror is definitely not accepted by Islam regardless of its goal and cause,” he said.

“There is an emblematic saying by Islamic thinkers that terror has no religion, and that there is no terror in religion.”

Muslim scholars have repeatedly condemned terrorism as running counter against the teachings of Islam.

In 2008, thousands of Muslim scholars from across India denounced terrorism as a violation of Islamic teachings, calling it the “biggest crime as per Qur’an.”

Another Britain-based Muslim scholar, Sheikh Tahir ul-Qadri, issued a 600-page fatwa in May 2011, condemning suicide bombings, kidnappings and the killing of innocent people as “absolutely against the teachings of Islam”.

“The Muslim religion and the Muslim community cannot be accused of a crime committed by one person or a group of marginal types,” Mufti Hadzhi said.

“Terrorism is an enemy to both Muslims and the entire humankind.”

  1. These are the leftover Turks from the officials and troops who massacred Bulgarians over the past 800 years.

  2. No backlash? None whatever. But there comes a time when there will a real big backlash, the sum of the all backlashes that didn’t happen. Muslims beware.

  3. The turks should have all been wiped out at the end of WW1 however thanks to the decision of the Britain to abandon support to the Greek army who was well on the way of “fixing the turkish problem for the world” this never happend

    Exactly chief poofty violence against innocents, the Jews are seen as enemies of islam and the muslims

  5. Jay the British remained neutral after 4 years of senseless death and bleeding themselves white. Neutral – as was the Greeks in 1915. Unfortunately I believe it was Constatine who kept Greece out of the war. With Russia in the caucasus, Anzacs French and Brits in Gallipoli and the Greeks in Thrace the Greeks of Pontus and the Armenians would have been saved. Turkey could have been reduced to central Anatolia. Greece would have had Bithynia and Pontus.

  6. “Terrorism is an enemy to both Muslims and the entire humankind.”

    Islam is an enemy to both muslims and Humankind.
