Apologize

As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?

 

I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack – or to even think about doing it. But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened?

 

Nickelback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?

I totally agree. Terrorist f***s give Muslims a bad name. I am surrounded by wonderful people and colleagues who are almost all Muslims and I’ve developed lasting friendships.

I am Catholic. Should you blame me for the Inquisition?

  1. I agree, a lot of Muslims do not condone these acts. They have a clear understanding between Jihadism and terrorism. And yeah, a lot of them are amazing! Liking or supporting terrorism is not dependent on one’s religion. It’s more of his socio-political belief, or just being plainly nasty!
