According to the perpetual Muslim sympathizers at the Huffington Post, Khawlah Noman, 11, (who created a media and political firestorm by falsely reporting that a strange man had cut her hijab with scissors on her way to school), is not only deserving of sympathy but an apology for the blowback that came her way after she was outed by police as making it up.
Police told CBC News that Noman won’t be charged. (And neither will her family who were accomplices in this well-rehearsed scheme to get media attention and possibly even a financial windfall, knowing that, Justin Trudeau has been awarding huge sums of money – $$millions – to Muslim terrorists who claim to have been treated badly while incarcerated)
CBC Her fake story captured national and international attention, and drew public condemnation from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Toronto Mayor John Tory.
Amira Elghawaby, a Muslim rights advocate based in Ottawa, said she was saddened to learn that the girl’s story was not true, adding it will likely only serve to embolden “those who do hold discriminatory views of Muslims.” She also stressed that, as an 11-year-old, “she probably doesn’t really understand the full implications of what she’s done” and deserves compassion from adults.
But the Huffington Post took this undeserved compassion to a higher level – saying that “We owe HER an apology for not remembering that, even though she is well-spoken, she is still a child.” (Hey, scorpions have children, too)
When did we assign this level of attention to a child’s stories? When race and religion (ONLY when the race is non-white and the religion is Islam) are involved, we seem to lose all perspective. Because the story appeared to be one where anti-Muslim hatred was a motivating factor, where a child was allegedly attacked for wearing a religious head covering, we felt a kind of national outrage.
Did the child know that she was hitting Canada’s sensitive button? We don’t know.
(What the media should be asking is: Did the parents know she was hitting Justin Trudeau’s ‘payoffs for terrorists’ button? Or the ‘Islamophobia is the biggest problem in Canada’ button? You can bet they did, which is why they not only encouraged this farce without any evidence, they provided the child with a prepared script from which she was obviously reading at the press conference)
