My feelings about this fracas are summed up in this post I made on Quarter to Three:
I was so fucking ready to participate. I was in the Facebook group and I had my picture ready.
The FB group threads were filled with Western idiots screaming "ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS" and Arab fuckheads screaming "WE WIL KIL U DIKS HU DRAW R PROPHET (PBUH)."
It was sickening. I was defending free speech, saying the point was that we weren't going to let radical Islamofacists prevent us from exercising freedom of expression through threats of violence. Responses amounted to: Western idiots screaming "ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS" and Arab fuckheads screaming "WE WIL KIL U DIKS HU DRAW R PROPHET (PBUH)."
Then I met a peaceful Muslim named Ali. He simply said, "Please, these people threatening you are not true Muslims. I beg peace. True Muslims respect all others and do not cause harm. Please do not insult our prophet."
Ali and I got in a conversation between all the FUCK ISLAM and FUK U WE KIL YUO posts. We grew to respect each other. He respected my lack of faith, and I came to respect his view of Islam, and his begging for a lack of violence.
I deleted my Muhammad picture. I can't insult a billion Muslims for the radicalism of a small percentage. I discovered I love peace as much as I love the First Amendment.
Take from that what you will.
One other thing: Ali Shehzad, if you read this, contact me.
