Folks, because we have tolerated so many others to fray the fabric of religiosity in our country, we no longer recognize the difference between right and wrong or good and evil; now we react to incidences like the one below with “oh, they’re only expressing themselves,” or “they’re protected by the first amendment”.
Well, we’re here to tell you that it IS EVIL and it IS WRONG for what these Muslims are about to do tomorrow:
“Muslim” members of the University of California, Irvine’s graduating class will wear green sashes with the word “shahada” in Arabic along with their commencement robes in tomorrow’s ceremony – a reference some say is an incitement to violence that should not be allowed. “Shahada” can be translated several ways, including as a declaration of faith in Islam, but it often is used in reference to “martyrdom” – especially martyrdom attained by suicide bombers.
If this display of pan-Arabic barbarism will be condoned because some liberal court judge will water down the ferocity of the sash as a freedom of speech issue, then at least, allow fellow American and Jewish students to have equal time by wearing sashes that say “Ma Fish falastin”.
