Interesting slant on the story considering that it was the pro-Muslim Texas loonies that showed up with assault rifles to attack the anti-Muslim Texas loonies. Before they could shoot anything other than the building they were both killed by an off-duty policeman, hired for security, who was armed with his service pistol.
What we need is fewer loonies of ANY kind: pro- or anti-Muslim, pro- or anti-choice, pro- or anti-Obama (thankfully, pro-Obama loonies are rare), etc.
Argue your opinion with FACTS and REASON the best you can, and if fewer people agree with you than disagree, accept it peacefully until the next debate or election. And if it has to do with religion, follow your own and leave everyone else’s alone.
Peace be upon EVERYONE, not just the Prophet.
The fact is that the very same Jewish NY woman who bitched that she had 1st Amendment Rights to put anti-Muslim posters on NY buses and subways is the same Jewish NY woman who instigated this BS in TX. Do this to her breed and she’d be screaming “Anti-Semitism” so loud the Wailing Wall in Israel would collapse.
Danziger, it looks like you are siding with the people who would gladly kill you.
Robert Eckert…Come off it Buster…You know damn well that the woman who started this mess in Texas is a princess Noo Yawkah who used her so-called First Amendment Rights to put anti-Muslim posters on NY buses and subways. What the hell do you call that if not instigating trouble?
Can I put blasphemic posters out there of the 2 Rabbis in NJ who got thrown in prison in that 2008 raid in North Jersey? No? Why not? Because they are Rabbis? Can I slander Rabbi Menachem Schneerson because he caused traffic jams all over the NJ Turnpike when his 10,000 orthdoxy decided to converge on the roads? You bet not.
There are good decent practicing Muslims who are 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation American citizens. How dare you or anyone, pretend you don’t know that the Jewish woman behind the TX instigation has a back room agenda?
All of us are fed up with the Jew vs. Arab BS. It’s 5,000 years old. Who the hell told that stupid wife of Abraham to allow her slave to be hubby’s concumbine so he could have a son? Then, Sarah gets a bitch on the minute she finds a late pre-menopause pregnancy and ships Hagar and Ishmael off the the desert so the bitchy Sarah could elevate HER Jewish son to Numero Uno?
Enough of this already.
“Can I put blasphemic posters out there of the 2 Rabbis in NJ who got thrown in prison in that 2008 raid in North Jersey?” OF COURSE YOU CAN! And if anybody tries to shoot you for it, they deserve to die.
“Can I slander Rabbi Menachem Schneerson” OF COURSE YOU CAN! And certainly, you could tell the truth about him. And if anybody tries to shoot you for it, they deserve to die.
“There are good decent practicing Muslims who are 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation American citizens. ” Yes, I know such people. I teach in the Detroit metro area, the largest concentration of Muslims outside of Muslim-majority countries. The Muslims that I know understand and accept that non-Muslims do not have a reverential attitude toward Muhammad and should not be forced to pretend to.
“How dare you or anyone, pretend you don’t know that the Jewish woman behind the TX instigation has a back room agenda?” I don’t give a damn what her agenda was. She is not a pleasant person, but she was certainly correct that there are Muslims who will murder over expression that they don’t like. Between a cartoonist and a murderer I am on the cartoonist’s side, and I am appalled that a cartoonist would take the other side.
There are also Jewish Rabbis who attempt murder. Try the NY Post’s report in April 2015 of the NY Rabbi who contrived to get a wife murdered because her husband refused to allow her a “get”…divorce. The only reason the murder didn’t occur was that the guy who was hired to carry it off backed out.
“There are also Jewish Rabbis who attempt murder.” And they should be punished for their crimes. And you have every right to say so without getting shot at. What is your point? Do you have one?
Yes…Here is MY point…Instigators are like roaches. They breed and breed and breed, feast on whatever is available until nothing remains and is unsafe for human consumption.
The point is that men and women who are instigators, like roaches go after the last crumb with gusto and fill their guts. That woman Zeller who instigated this trouble should be hung in a public square. She knew full well that holding an event that bashed a major religious figure to someone else’s religion would be considered blashphemy and anti-semitism if a Muslim bashed her religion.
You can hide behind your BS all you like. Many Muslims today believe they have to protect their religion from the “other” religion so hot to prove that Isaac was Abraham’s first born and therefore only rightful sole King of the Hebrews. Sorry..that BS biblical crappola is too too stupid to allow any Jew or Muslim to do battle on American soil.
The Christian Crusaders killed off thousands of Muslims over a period of hundreds of years to protect Christianity.
You can be as biased as you like but if your or your religion instigates war in MY country, perhaps, it’s time you faced facts…I am not going to protect a Jewish woman who knowingly instigated trouble. Was there a reason she just HAD to bash Mohammed? Or is this a Jewish thing?
People who respond to speech with murder need to be wiped out. “if a Muslim bashed her religion” she would doubtless respond with angry words, but would not shoot. You are on the side of the murderers, and belong in the pit with them.
“if your or your religion instigates war in MY country” My religion is Buddhism, and this is MY country too.
No matter how you try to slice it, when you bash someone’s religion Mr. Know it All, you get the retaliation you asked for. Everyone, Muslim, Jew, Christian, Protestant, Buddhist or aetheist has the right to defend their beliefs.
Christian Crusaders did this and murder tens of thousands of Moslems…now Israelis are doing the very same thing in Gaza…one Jew dies and another 500 Palestinians are killed. When the tally on Palestinian deaths exceeds the entire population of Israel, will you call the Israelis murderers?
I am not on the side of any murderers. But neither do I ignore that one Jewish woman instigated the murders …that’s usually known as aiding and abetting.
I truly believe in free speech, but when that so-called “free speech” makes fun of a particular group; i.e., the Muslims, then it shouldn’t be allowed! If someone in the Middle East made fun of our God….what would we do and how would we feel? As the bible says….”do unto others as you would have done to you….” or something along that line.
