Is there any info that any member at the particular Mosque is suggesting radical actions by the members or others of the faith.

Sometimes the truth hurts. I wonder how many of WarmIndy's claims would be denied by the third party involved?

Also wondering whether you are completely ignorant about Iran, or you just buy into all the naive globalist pap floating around.

You do realize, don't you, that the poster you were holding hands with and singing Kimbayah, is a Muslim from Iran?


And yet you don't realize how bigoted your first sentence is?

And I will say this before I leave ..... your racist prejudiced presence. I have forgotten more about Iran than you will EVER know.


Alrightie then everytime someone posts a not so nice comment about christians, and jews.

I get to call them bigot, and racists.

Political Correctness is un-American in my personal opinion.

Thought experiment:
Halloween costumes. Someone goes as Jesus, someone goes as Abraham, someone goes as Sheevah (that would be intense), someone goes as buddah, and someone goes as Muhammad. This group walks around trick or treating to various religious communities represented by each of their costumes. Where do you think they would be the least safe?

By the way, there have been comic books, Hollywood movies, and tons of action figures all done in a ridiculously cheesy way depicting a God I worship, yet you don't see me calling for Thor's fury to be hammered upon Marvel comic books or Hollywood do you?

I have to agree this over sensitivity towards a religion that currently is the number one world problem, is out of control.

Ladyinwaiting... calm down, i like your character, i think your sweet and yes Warminindy was rather bold and confrontational about the way she put fourth her argument, but she does have some valid points.

I Can't stand PC.

My basic definition of it is: A person can't say nothing that might hurt someone else's feelings because someone might be dumb enough to believe it.

Free speech is free speech. The last freedom anyone has anymore is the thoughts in their heads.

People should be free to say what they honestly believe.

Without honest communication there is absolutely no way this 'civilization' will ever move forward.

Don't hold your breath on this getting answered, I have asked it three times in all the threads and no one has been able to answer it.

As bikers gather outside a mosque to protest Islam, interfaith advocates will be on Twitter sending the global community a message of inclusion


I can't wait to see their support of abortion, womens rights, and gay rights!

INCLUSION!!!!

Intimidating children, families attending prayer with guns and hateful chants

^^^from the link...agreed

When free speech provokes, threatens, incites, it's no longer productive or safe.

and agreed

I understand freedom of speech. I would also understand if an artist had a deep desire to draw the Prophet Mohammed. But this is just the second in events that win the 'dumbazz award'. This one wins first place as it was outside of a mosque during evening prayers. It is offensive, needlessly provocative and possibly dangerous. Why do people feel the need to do this? It's not a respected newspaper either, it's just a bunch of idiots, again. It's irresponsible at the least.



While I wouldn't personally partake in this event. . . .

It is necessary. It is necessary until it can be done WITHOUT being provocative and most of all dangerous. I refuse to cater to Muslims because their feelings might get hurt when I see things that piss me off every single day in the name of 'free speech', but like a grown up and like a homo sapien in the 21st freaking century, I don't see a need to kill someone because of it.

When people can be as openly hostile and deliberately provocative towards Islam as Liberals are to Christianity, it will not be an issue. Muslims killed more Christians in 3 years during the Armenian Genocide than Christians did in all of the crusades, yet all we learn about in school is how evil the crusades were. I don't even remember hearing about the Armenian Genocide in school.

When Islam can be slandered the same amount and in the same ways as Christianity and Judaism are today, I will be the first to jump in their defense. They have yet to prove that.

No. Quite the opposite actually. The leader of that Mosque has told all Muslims in the valley, especially those at that particular Mosque, not to engage the protesters. Don't talk to them, don't look at them, don't make eye contact..........nothing.

Go to the KTAR radio website and they'll have some good info. for you.

It helps to know also that the contest itself is not being held on the grounds of the Mosque. That's being held about a mile north. Don't know exactly where. But when they're done with that they will be going to the Mosque for the actual protest.

They have the right to do this the same as the Westboro Baptist people.

However, while the Muslims who attend this mosque may be offended by the images they in all probability aren't going to take violent action about it the same way the overwhelming majority of American Muslims aren't going to take violent action about it.

They should find a more appropriate place to protest.

Well, this was interesting:


PHOENIX -- In order to educate the public on their beliefs, a Muslim group is holding a public seminar Saturday in Tempe about their faith.

The event at the Tempe History Museum is called Stop The CrISIS. Supporters say it is designed as an initiative to fight terrorism.

Mahir Osman, Assistant Director of Humanitarian Services for the Ahmadyyah Muslim Youth Association, said these programs are held in order to show others the difference between ISIS and Islam.
---------------
He added Muslims should be protecting other Christians, not harming them.

"They shouldn't be harming our Christian brothers and sisters that are being slaughtered over there in Syria and Iraq right now," Osman said. "They should be protecting those Christians, but they're not doing that."

Yes, I have seen it.

I was suggesting these people may not agree with the radical angle and might also be against the violence in the world. But they are the ones the protest is really targeting.

The fact that you're saying it's "irresponsible"....only supports the fact that it needs to be done.

What it shows is that for drawing CARTOONS, there is possible threat/danger to one's life. That cannot stand, so we must draw MORE cartoons. This is about NOT dying or being threatened for cartoons, of a guy, that died more than 1300 years ago.

More and more of these events should go on, because if there is ONE person that dies from supposed "offense" then we all are in danger.

Draw more, draw often, mock them. Muslims from all over this country MUST submit to the fact that this WILL happen, and people will NOT die for it, or else it WILL continue.

Period
