Human Events--On Friday, a young Muslim man in New Jersey named Kashif Pervaiz was charged with the murder of his wife, Nazish Noorani, who was shot dead Tuesday night while pushing her 3-year-old son in a stroller on a street in Boonton, N.J.
Although the case apparently has nothing whatsoever to do with jihad terrorism, Islamic honor killing, or any such matter, it has been illuminating of the Islamic supremacist strategy to suppress free speech about Islam and jihad in the U.S. today.
Pervaiz, you see, was walking with Noorani when the shooting took place. He had allegedly set up the whole thing with his accomplice mistress, a Boston woman with whom he apparently shares an apartment. And according to the New York Post, Pervaiz initially told police that “three men, one black, one white and one of an uncertain race, called the couple terrorists before opening fire.” That was enough for police to investigate the possibility that the shooting was an anti-Muslim hate crime—that is, until Pervaiz began changing his story, and began to emerge as a suspect.
Islamic supremacists never miss a chance to position Muslims as victims so as to deflect attention away from jihad terror and try to place Islam and the Muslim community beyond reasonable scrutiny. And so even as Pervaiz was starting to equivocate and spin ever-taller tales, the blame game began. I received a tweet from a certain Jawad Rasul, containing a link to one of the initial stories about the murder: “If you have any humanity, you might ponder over this!” Meanwhile, a well-placed source told me that Ibrahim Hooper of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was “salivating and waiting to jump all over” the Noorani murder story. “They are waiting to blame you for everything.” (Read more.)

Robert Spencer: N.J. Murder the Latest Outrage in the Islamic Blame Game
Muslims take advantage of the Islamophobia myth in various ways. Groups like CAIR attempt to insulate Islam from criticism by screaming "Bigotry!" at anyone who dares challenge Muhammad's commands to murder, rape, and subjugate non-Muslims. The media are all too happy to give Muslims the platform after every terrorist attack (in order to reduce Islamophobia, you see), so ABC, NBC, and CNN end up becoming tools for Islamic dawah following incidents of Jihad. Now, it seems, Islamophobia is being used to throw off police when Muslims commit crimes. Just point a finger at Islamophobes, and you might get away with murder.
