In Europe, it is the rule, not the exception, that media outlets regularly omit the religion in crime stories about suspects who come from Europe’s biggest crime community – Muslims.
Islam vs Europe This story in the French publication LeMonde relates to an incident at a French school last week in which a 13-year-old non-Muslim boy was murdered by a 16-year-old Chechen (Russia) Muslim who attended the same school, apparently because he refused to lower his eyes when they came face-to-face with one another.
The Muslim’s name was Suleiman. When reporting the story, though, Le Monde bizarrely changed the murderer’s name to Vladimir, conveniently covering up the fact that he is a Muslim. It also mis-reported the Muslim’s demand for submissive lowering of the eyes by saying simply that the incident blew up “when their eyes met.”
