Most Muslims Are No Different Than Their Jewish and Christian Kin, In That, They Never Actually Read Their Holy Book
Why is Islam so different, so quick to rush to death threats, when Mohammed or Islam itself is insulted? The answer is in the Qur’an
One of the most horrendous attacks on free speech and human life itself occurred in Paris on January 7, 2015, when two gunmen yelled “Allahu Akbar!” (God is greatest!) stormed the offices of the satirical French weekly Charlie Hebdo and slaughtered twelve people.
Their reason? The magazine routinely publishes articles and cartoons lampooning Mohammed. Never mind that they poke fun at every other sacred cow as well. Mere drawings were enough for two people who take the Qur’an way too seriously to end the lives of twelve others who didn’t.
Not deterred in the least, the surviving staff carried on and published their next issue right on schedule. On January 11, 2015, over a million people, including more than forty presidents and prime ministers from around the world, poured into the streets and marched through Paris in a show of solidarity.
