Reader comment on item: Mocking Muhammad Is Not Hate Speech
in response to reader comment: Another lost tablighee

Submitted by seyfoe (Netherlands), Oct 22, 2012 at 19:53

I thank you for correcting my english and the translation of my arabic. I noticed you are an authority in these matters. I am merely a layman(?) in this area. Your passion on this makes me smiles. It shows me again that radicalism exists on all fronts and it is almost impossible to wipe out.

To defend myself a little, I work and also contribute to the health care and the social benefits you mentioned. That was the only remark that I found a little bit insulting. It is almost as of if your mind connects muslim, arab with unemployed and welfare user. Maybe its that mindset what is also a cause of the social econamical problems muslims have in europe. Nevermind, we are free to hate speech, so we also can judge one another. A question, seriously, what does the Bible say about mockery and judging? I am curious on your opinion about it. And for the nick seyfoe, it comes from the chinese word for master( in martial arts). Wrote it down fonetically(ph?) and of course it sounded also as sword. That was funny about it. Now you are mentioning the word sword, the Bible mentions it over 200 times. The Quran not once. So I am closer to the Bible with my nick, lol.

What I really wanted to state here, is that I am anti radicalism in all directions. i try to do it on a polite matter and if my arabic or my english is wrong, I am happy if you correct me. But correct me on my opinion. What is wrong with agreeing as believers to not mock eachother on religious grounds. It is a show of love, respect, brotherhood, all of them virtues that the Bible and Quran share.
