Why didn't you quote the whole paragraph? That way you didn't have to make it sound like you have an agenda.

You want people to forgive your ignorance, but you are not helping yourself. Or maybe you don't.
I have no clue what you are talking about. You're not making sense.

Sikh men wear turbans. If this was an attack on a Sikh man wearing a turban, headlines would read Sikh man and Sikh is a religion (followers of Sikhism). Why not mention religion when the attack was result of the 11 year old's religious garments?
Point taken. I did not think about that. And the assailant is Asian? That is surprising.

maybe he was racist against arabs? if so, its a crime to be racist and he should be caught by the police, arrested, and locked up for 25 years

Don't be ignorant. Christian Arabs' persecution by Muslims in Muslim countries is largely ignored by the west. But that's a separate topic, altogether.

If not, why does the article explicitly state that she is Muslim? Is that necessary? Also, this happened in Scarborough. If it happened in Etobicoke (i.e. Ford county) I would have understood. But Scarborough?
Also, why does the article explicitly state that the suspect is Asian?!?!
I propose that any time a crime is committed that no mention of race or description of victim and suspect is mentioned to prevent the race card from being mentioned...

Muslims prosecute Muslims in Muslim countries. Largest casualties of ISIS have been primarily peaceful Muslims. Extremists hate any that don't align with their views.

I believe he was being sarcastic. There are many prominent Christian Arabs out there who are well known. Few people remember but Yasser Arafat wife was actually Christian.

However the average racist thinks Arab=brown=Muslim=big beard.

Toronto girl Khawlah Noman says she's "scared" following an attack in which a man tried to cut off her hijab with scissors. At a press conference, Noman said the man created a large gash in her hijab.

Damn. There's one thing to hear it was an 11 year old but damn, to actually see the victim.

Coward. Absolute coward

Maybe, just maybe this never really happened. Or if it did, might the perp have a health issue that we could help him with? Everyone jumps to hang him but no one offers to help.

The title should read "Hijab-wearing girl allegedly attacked in Scarborough". Just like how Omar Khadr allegedly threw a grenade at a medic.

That being said, if this story is true, then this guy is nothing but a coward.

Any proof this happened? Its amazing how this makes national headlines, with the Prime Minister commenting on it, but things like murder at times barely make local news.

As much as I am quick to defend minorities and such...i have a gut feeling that this story isn't all what is being told to us.

Something is telling me this is a hoax of some sort to start a gofundme page or whatever. I hope I am wrong that's for sure!
