In fairness ....

I heard a horrific interview on BBC this morning with a British paramedic named Hassan Zubier, visiting Finland as a tourist, who was stabbed four times as he attempted to save the life of one of the Finnish victims. The linked-to article is scarce on details: the actual radio interview shows an amazing man who kept his fingers in the poor woman's throat, holding her arteries together, while the attacker kept returning to stab him, again and again.

The woman died, unfortunately, and Mr. Zubier has been hospitalized with numerous stab wounds including" a severe spinal injury". The attacker has been identified as one of the Syrian refugees Finland permitted entry in 2015; there is no mention of Zubier's religion, but from his name, it seems probable that he is of Middle Eastern heritage and might very well be a Muslim himself. 

I'll make an effort to remember his courage and compassion when the next terrorist attack hits.
