Pace University Slouches Toward Shar’ia

Hate-crime arrests in Quran desecrations at Pace University

A 23-year-old man was arrested Friday on hate-crime charges after he threw a Quran in a toilet at Pace University on two separate occasions, police said.

Stanislav Shmulevich of Brooklyn was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and aggravated harassment, both hate crimes, police said. It was unclear if he was a student at the school. A message left at the Shmulevich home was not immediately returned.

The Islamic holy book was found in a toilet at Pace’s lower Manhattan campus by a teacher on Oct. 13. A student discovered another book in a toilet on Nov. 21, police said.

Muslim activists had called on Pace University to crack down on hate crimes after the incidents. As a result, the university said it would offer sensitivity training to its students.

The school was accused by Muslim students of not taking the incident seriously enough at first. Pace classified the first desecration of the holy book as an act of vandalism, but university officials later reversed themselves and referred the incident to the New York Police Department’s hate crimes unit.

The incidents came amid a spate of vandalism cases with religious or racial overtones at the school. In an earlier incident on Sept. 21, the school reported another copy of the Quran was found in a library toilet, and in October someone scrawled racial slurs on a student’s car at the Westchester County satellite campus and on a bathroom wall at the campus in lower Manhattan. Police did not connect Shmulevich to those incidents.

Treatment of the Quran is a sensitive issue for Muslims, who view the book as a sacred object and mistreating it as an offense against God.

Right, and my Mom slapped the shit out of me once when I ripped a page out of our family ‘s Bible in a fit of pique, but something like this gets qualified as a “hate crime”?

What I want to know is whether the dickbags running Pace will bring “hate crime” charges against the next patchouli sucking peacenik asshat who lights an American flag on fire during a “Stop the War” protest.

“No way; that’s an expression of Free Speech, and is protected by the First Amendment.”

SO IS SHOVING THAT FUCKING BOOK IN A LOO!

And how the bloody FUCK does Islam get preferential treatment at a campus roughly four hundred yards from Ground Zero? A place that probably lauded the “pissChrist” guy and considered the dung-covered Virgin Mary “artist” some kind of profound commenter on our societal situation….

Wait, sorry. I keep forgetting that only the rabid followers of the sole Abrahamic religion who prove their fidelity by cutting off infidel’s heads, or affirm their fealty by killing random people in a pizza parlor by blowing everyone (and themselves) to smithereens deserve respect… silly Heebs and Christianists are fair game for this kind of abuse, since those people won’t slit your fucking throat if you diss their religious beliefs… yet.
