I AM ANTI-ISLAM!
By Marwa Rakha
Yes! You read the headline correctly! I – Marwa Rakha – am against Islam! I am against a religion that is used to allow the abuse of the human being in the name of God!
Marrying off girls at the age of 9 or 12 or 14 or 16 is abuse! This is pedophilia in its clearest form!
Marrying off young virgins to rich old men is abuse! Selling a human being is the textbook definition of slavery!
Cutting off parts of the sacred intact human body is abuse! Circumcision is mutilation! Circumcision is assault!
The representatives of Islam on earth promote the following insults as orders from God; Objectifying women! Defacing women! Insulting women! Beating up women! Sexually harassing women!
Islam is translated into a religion that prohibits freedom of speech, freedom of belief, and freedom of expression! People are standing before the court of law and are being tried for blasphemy! Is that the 21st century or the dark middle ages?
The God of Islam is portrayed as a God that needs mediators, translators, and a ruthless army of defenders!
The spokesmen of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Salafis, and hypnotized masses of blind followers are the true anti-Islam movie that is being aired live to the whole world to watch and judge! With their frowning faces and aggressive pitches, those preachers blatantly make enemies of women, children, other religions, and minorities.
Am I making this up?! No!
What do you call punishing people who chose not to fast in Ramadan?
What do you call limiting the construction of different worship places – other than mosques?
What do you call trying Kareem Amer in 2006 and trying Albert Saber in 2012 for denouncing Islam? What did Bishoy Kamel do to deserve being sentenced to 6 years in jail? What do you call evacuating people out of their homes by force? What do you call burning their houses and robbing them off their properties?
What do you call burning the Bible in front of the American Embassy and enticing against Christians on television?
What do you call attacking foreign embassies and their employees?
What do you call blaming sexual harassment on the victim? It is always about what a woman is or is not wearing!
What do you call hate speech against Jews and Christians?
What do you call actual mockery of Hindus and their beliefs?
What do you call hostility against Bahaais?
What do you call endless futile debates regarding female genital mutilation?
What do you call relentless efforts to convince women that that they are sinful; that they are properties of their fathers and husbands?
What do you call clear instructions of beating up children and wives?
Who would be proud of belonging to such a group of perverts?!
How would a true Muslim react to the offensive movie?
He would simply continue living his day to day life representing his religion! This is the best defense!
YOU are Islam! YOUR ACTIONS are Islam! YOUR WORDS are Islam!
If you lack manners, then people will portray Muslims as a savage crowd!
If you lack common sense, Islam will be portrayed as the religion of an emotional neurotic bunch!
If you defend the abuse of women and children, Islam will be portrayed as a violent abusive perverted religion!
If you call Jews and Christians monkeys and pigs, do not expect respect in return!
If you appoint yourself as the sole self-righteous guardian of religions, expect opposition and rebellion in return!
Before accusing anyone of being anti Islam think again! Who is truly anti Islam?
Forcing your beliefs on anyone will not do God any favors!
Dear angry Muslims, please take a moment to examine your own actions and see how you have contributed to the script of "The Innocence of Muslims" movie.
