i live in a muslim country, the reason why this muslim man attacked the protester is because of how close muslims are to their religion.
In muslim countries entire lives are followed and lived through islam, the daily routine, the way of life.
this man has had his faith in islam all his life, his parents taught it to him from a young age, he grew up knowing it and believing it.
By this protestor insulting Prophet Mohammed, it is hypothetically like spitting in his father and mothers face, let alone this muslim mans entire
What would you do if someone spat on your mothers face?
just do nothing.
Christianity is not as strict as islam is, i know as a christian living in a muslim country.
oh i could get on to atheism but what a waste of my time, read my motto or signature whatever - research '___' release upon death and you do the
nteresting and insulting at the same time.
First how DO YOU KNOW that christianity is not as strict (in teaching and love of it by members) as followers is Islam? That alone is the hight of
There are many christians, jews, druids, and satanists (to name a few) who take their particular faiths VERY SERIOUSLY. The main difference is as a
whole most are not on hair trigger/overly sensitive to people who do not agree with their faiths.
To take it further I have YET to see the general population of christians, jews, druids, ect going after with murderous intent on people who insult
their faith. Be it by unflattering cartoon, burning religious books, or outright acts that they feel are sac religious in any form (be extreme or
Two. Your faith of Islam is no more important, to be reviered, protected, or given protection from insults any more or less than any other faith (or
no faith at all) PERIOD. You really need to get over yourself.
:You need to realize that in the overall picture no one has ANY OBLIGATIONS to respect your religion over any other (or none at all for that matter).
Is it better if out of common civility that you do, HECK YES. But that street goes BOTH WAYS and (unfortunately) not required.
Three. You are in AMERICA AMERICA AMERICA. Not saudi arabia, Iran, Iraq, ect. You are bound by the laws and customs of this country. In this country
your faith again is no more protected from ridicule than mine (catholic) is. Last I checked the insults to my faith are daily and much more (in scope
and number) than yours are. So get over yourself.
Four. While you may feel "it is hypothetically like spitting in his father and mothers face" the cold hard truth is IT IS NOT PERIOD. The law
(except for this judge OPINON) DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO ASSAULT SOMEONE ON YOUR FEELING, ONLY DIRECT THREAT.
This costume of Zombie Mohamid is not even close to me (for example) having a hunting knife on my hip and me telling you how I am going to cut you. Or
me with fists clinched, screaming profanities at you, and saying I am going to attack you.
Nor in the reverse way do I have a right to attack you physically for being (if you were for sake of discussion) the artist who did the display of the
christ on the cross in urine.
The cold hard truth is Islam is no more or less important or should be protected from comment (even unflattering or insulting) than ANY OTHER
NOR ITS MEMBERS ANY LESS LIABLE UNDER LAW FOR ACTIONS TAKEN UNDER ITS INSTRUCTION OR DUE TO PERCIEVED INSULT.
This judge BLATENTLY showed his bias and disregard for the law by elevating someones PERCIEVED insult to Islam as being "fighting words" over the
constant and continued attacks on other religions (especially christians).
If someone can run around in a priest/nun costume on halloween without fear of attack than so should this zombie mohamad.
Someone again (with a strait face) tell me that Islam as a whole is a peacefull religion?
Or better yet when was the last time the pope called for the death of an author who showed Jesus Christ in an unflattering light.
