Umm Sulaim's Thoughts

Thoughts Lead To Appreciation



Just before dawn of Wednesday 12th of September, 2012, I accidentally bumped into the news of events in Egypt and Libya, the details of which are now well known.

Interestingly, among the negative comments on that article from readers was that as usual Muslims in the US will not condemn the protesters and their actions.

I was quick to point out that Muslims in the US do not hesitate to fall over themselves to condemn such acts.  I suppose I should have added that the same applies to very many Muslims elsewhere.

Although I was saddened to later learn that a life was lost in the incident, the best position to avoid tit-for-tat scenarios is to restrict the cause and ’causers’ of the crisis in the first instance.

Freedom of expression, of which I am a supporter must not be stuck to the face of another individual, or should I say the Niqab (face veil) – another symbol of Islam commenters in that article ridiculed – of another individual. And if it did, the latter’s freedom of expression begins.

And just as one group did not authorize and delineate the actions of the opponent, the latter is not in a position to direct the conduct of the former.

Comments became more pathetic than hurtful after I responded to them. And that is one point Muslims miss:

Condemn your hands and legs if you wish. Until you are able to tackle Islamophobia intellectually, you will continue to condemn.

It is the absence of this intellectual force that leaves the masses to speak for themselves, only to be condemned.

    Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening. I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this information together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!

    I do accept as true with all of the ideas you’ve offered on your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. May you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

    Edited: The name was edited in line with the comment guidelines.
