Idiotic Muslims

February 2, 2006

I wasn’t going to comment on this but the sheer idiocy of my Muslim Brethren is causing me to speak out.

What on earth are we thinking? Will we never learn?

Back in September 2005 the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published cartoons which depicted the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist. But the reaction of the muslim world back then was one of ‘Ignore it and it will go away’. But somewhere, someone has gotten hold of this and decided that this is a major issue.

There have been so many depictions of the prophet through the ages that to bring this up now is simply ridiculous. Alhamedi goes through these depictions with his tongue firmly in his cheek.

But yet again, our reaction belies how far we have moved away from the roots of Islam where tolerance was given to all. Once again the name of ordinary muslims are being dragged through the mud because of a small bunch of zealots who cannot see the beyond their own noses. Screaming and shouting about ‘art’ which is offensive only pushes it into the public arena and gives it unwarranted publicity.

We need to think about our reaction to things and work with the system we are in. A mosquito cannot kill a human. But if the malaria virus infiltrates the human system, it can bring it down. Become part of the system if you want it to change.

Think about it you idiots!

    Well said! I believe that while lots of people do think that cartoons were in bad taste and apology from newspaper should be demanded, the reaction (boycotts, threats, burning, etc.) makes victims look like perpetrators. By taking things to extreme they are helping people justify original cartoons.

  2. thank for speaking my mind out.
    my frend always says “extremists are always it muslims, or otherwise”. and this is what we just witnessed… tit for tat never brings us closer, especially in times like this when we really need understanding, cooperation and mutual respect.
    i understand the politicians are taking advantage. but i wonder y are the scholars so late in urging restraint.
    sad! sad!! sad!!!

  3. When you comment on ‘tolerance in Islam’ you forget one thing, that people across ethnicity and country has subscribed to Islam. Whatever Islam teaches them, they’ll be like ‘them’, they’ll inherit most of their behaviours from around their environment. This is the reason, you cannot expect same behaviour from Indonesian,Arabic and American Muslims, because they’ve got different views of the world while growing up. I would like to point out the problem as country specific rather than a Islamic one.

    Ahmad and Abu Jahl would be upon a par
