I am not Charlie Hebdo, nor am I a terrorist. On one

I am not Charlie Hebdo, nor am I a terrorist.

On one hand, I have never insulted anyones religion, prophet, or holy book nor do I approve of others doing so. I do not believe free speech should be used as a cover to insult the most beloved human being to me that’s ever lived or any prophet or holy figure. I do not approve of the vile racist cartoons drawn by Charlie Hedbo or any magazine (See: http://avantblargh.tumblr.com/post/107422672105). And if that means I’m not a “moderate Muslim” according to the bigot Bill Maher, then so be it.

On the other hand, I believe in principle and value life. I do not sanction vigilantes murdering people indiscriminately. I believe in responding to these evil insults against my Prophet (peace be upon him) with education and mercy. I have seen Arnoud Van Doorn change his life and say “I am sorry oh Prophet of God” and that is far more beloved to me than if someone would’ve murdered him 2 years ago.

I am not Charlie, nor am I a terrorist. I am a follower of the man who was sent as a mercy to the worlds.
