Many Muslims engage in furious criticism of people with whom they disagree or whom they see as the foes of Islam – progressive Muslims, Jews, the far right, the media – and if you stop to think about it maybe our contempt is wrong.
What about apostates!? Two years of slamming Islam and this is the recognition that I get. Towelie damn it!
I once heard an imam from the pulpit call Jews “the filthiest people on earth.” Is such loathing productive? Or does it cut us off from solutions and activism?
That's a tough one. Here's a clue: if anyone in a position of authority in the West called Muslims "the filthiest people on earth", then what would the glorious umma say to that?
A. Most productive, mashallah.
B. Unproductive; Islamophobic; racist; infidel; Jooo; JIHAD.
Take your time.
