Internet Can’t Believe This Amputee Soldier Would Respond Like This To Muslim Man ‘Blowing Him Up’

*** begin quote ***

Chris Herbert lost his leg in 2007, after a roadside bomb exploded next to his British Army vehicle in Basra, Iraq. Aged just 19 at the time, he also had to deal with the loss of his best friend, who died in the attack.

*** and ***

Blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Dashe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the KKK or the Westboro Baptist Church.

Get a grip on your lives, hug your family, and get back to work.

*** end quote ***

A very mature attitude from a fellow who has “seen the elephant”.

While I might quibble that most, if not all, Christians condemn both the KKK and Westboro, but I don’t hear Muslims condemning radicals. 

I don’t group people; I let them self-identify.  If you’re a little L libertarian like me, I MYOB.

I hope many are swayed by this eloquent fellow with some honest, yet colorful, language.

Dona Nobis Pacem
