My call for Jihad.
Asra Nomani, a muslim american femenist, is facing death threats-from one of the crazy fuckwits that use Islam as an excuse to kill people- because she has been lobbying for the right of Muslim women to pray side by side with men. It was two days after she appeared on "Nightline" talking about her fight to change her mosque that the death threats began. The first call came on her cell phone. The caller left a message, in Urdu: "If you want to stay alive, keep your mouth shut." Otherwise, he said, he would "slaughter" her, halal style, saying a prayer as he slid a knife across her throat. If she didn't shut up, he'd slaughter her mother and her father, too. Think before you speak, he said. I know where you live. I know where your parents live. Then he called her parents' home 10 minutes later. Just to reinforce the message. I am sure Rim Azmi would cheer for the caller and call him a great muslim and a real defender of the Islamic faith, while seriously advocating the painful "halal-style" death of Nomani, cause , you know, she had it coming. Grrrrrr.. You know, as i said here before, we let those bastards dictate the image of Islam around the world while we stay silent, and then we wonder why everyone has the mental picture of the crazy fanatical terrorist everytime the word Muslim gets mentioned. I refuse to believe that Islam is such an intolerant religion that it silences its critics by killing them instead of debating them, the same way i refuse to believe that the majority of Muslims who log on to this site would agree to the shit that gets carried in their names. It's time we spoke up and acted against those psychos who tarnish our image, or we deserve whatever stigma the rest of world gives us. I say we- mdoerate muslims/arabs- declare a JIHAD on them, like me, Hellme and Nadz once joked, except that this time i am serious. I declare myself a mullah, and i am issuing a fatwa declaring a jihad against anyone who takes it upon himself and threatens to kill/ kills anyone in the Name of Islam, because I've had it! It's either us or them people, and i vote for us. Those people have got to go!
