All too often we see this. The media (and even many counter-jihad organizations and groups that should know better) is so avid to highlight “moderate Muslims” that they get taken in again and again by Muslims who are anything but. But the Right is so cowed by the Left and its identity politics that it will keep playing along, anyway.
And yes, the sexual assault is an indication of a lack of moderation, and a hardline commitment to Islam.
More on this story. “Accused Twin Falls Muslim Was Used by Media as Example Two Months Ago,” by Lee Stranahan, Breitbart, August 10, 2016:
A Muslim Twin Falls man arrested over the weekend and charged with sexually assaulting a mentally retarded woman was quoted by local media in June as representative of Muslims opposing “bad things” and bemoaning the fact that the “picture of Muslims is getting worse.”
As reported by Breitbart News yesterday, Mohammed Hussein Ibraheim Eldai was arrested Saturday and charged Monday in an incident involving a mentally retarded woman.
Police then made contact with Eldai who, according to court documents, admitted to touching and exposing himself to the victim with the intention of having intercourse with her.
Officers placed him under arrest and transported him to the Twin Falls County Jail where he is being held on $10,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is set for August 19th.
On June 14, in the wake of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting — the deadliest Islamist terrorist incident on US soil since 9/11 — the very same TV station KMVT did a piece aiming to put a good face on the local Muslim community.
The TV segment and corresponding written piece titled “We do not agree with those people doing bad things” was an attempt to put a positive spin on the local Muslim community.
The segment showed an on-air interview with now jailed Mohammed Hussein Ibraheim Eldai and quoted him as saying:
“These bad people they do this stuff in the name of Islam, and Islam doesn’t say it like that,” said Mohammed Hussein Ibraheim Eldai. “Now the picture of Islam is getting worse because, I don’t know. I… hope these people are going to give up.”
The positive June piece about Muslims that quoted the now arrested Eldai was hosted by reporter Amy Reid.
