2.5 Million Muslims Threaten to Leave FacebookTopics: Understanding Islam
The Muslims have their panties all in a bunch over the removal of four Facebook pages, and even have a list of demands:
My own reaction to this nonsense is who should effing care what these zealots are demanding. Being upset over Facebook pages being removed is one thing, while making what amounts to religious demands for special treatment is yet quite another.
- Reactivating the four pages that have been disabled
- Adding a Facebook Term that illegalizes disrespecting all Islamic religious symbols, including Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the Qur'an, as well as Prophet Moses (PBUH), Prophet Jesus (PBUH), and the original Bible
- Disabling any Facebook Page, Group, or Event that shows direct or indirect disrespect towards Islamic religious symbols
Islamists deserves no special treatment, regardless of how hard they push to make the rest of the world kow-tow to their ideological obsessions. It's high time for the world to stand up and say to Islamists everywhere -- enough is enough -- stay stuck in the Middle Ages as long as you wish, but leave the rest of us alone to move forward, free from Islamists' calls to restrict freedom of speech and for Islam to be treated differently from every other religion.
