Everyone knows by now of the Harvey Weinstein sexual and rape allegations, #MeToo trending all over social media, where millions of women who have been sexually abused by men are coming out and showing us that sexual harassment and rape is pervasive and prevalent in our culture. The Hollywood mogul pulled all sorts of excuses for his alleged sexual assaults and crimes, from the consensual, to the give me a break, I have changed and am going to treatment to be a better person.
Mr. Weinstein grew up in a Jewish family and as a Jew lived a secular life, the media however never pulling the religious card on him, only when he accepted Oscars or was on talk shows promoting his work; his religion though may come in handy for him at some stage. The overwhelming allegations of the long time Hollywood producer didn’t lead to condemnation of a whole religion, race or culture.
This is not the case when another similar sexual assault allegation took place with Arab/Muslims The New York Times however found it easy to pull the religious card when European Arab scholar Tariq Ramadan was accused of sexual harassment and rape from a former Salafist who turned liberal as the media characterized her, as if you can’t be liberal and Salafist, it is impossible in the mind of lots of people in the West, especially those who read the Times. I’m not going into the accuser motive or mind to come out now, for her #MeToo camping gave her the courage to come out. Mr. Ramadan denied all allegations and has an accusation against her of his own. The Times calls her the Muslim Rose McGowan. Here is the Times’ own reporting of Tariq Ramadan’s sexual allegation:
Mental illness, converted to Islam, troubled man, psychopath, gambler, divorced twice, lives in retired community, quite man, a family man, and most of all a “Lone Wolf”; these are the different ways the media and officials tried to avoid labelling the man who committed the “biggest mass shooting in American history.” a Terrorist.
First of all, this wasn’t the biggest mass shooting in American history (later they added ‘modern‘), the massacre at Wounded Knee was by far the biggest mass shooting in American history, where in 1890, the U.S. Army’s 7th Cavalry surrounded a band of Ghost Dancers under Big Foot, a Lakota Sioux chief, near Wounded Knee Creek, at the end 150 (some give a much higher number) Native Americans were slaughtered, mostly women and children.
