Must not remind people of Muslim terrorism

Illinois man Dennis Murdy created quite the controversy in his neighborhood when he recently erected two silhouette cutouts on his lawn that depicted a turban-wearing jihadi terrorist surrendering to an armed hunter.

According to WKTV, when Muslims in Murdy’s community found out about his lawn display, they threw quite a fit.

“Free speech should not be mixed with hate speech,” argued Imam Kamil Mufti from the Islamic Foundation of Peoria. “It’s extremely important and we have to draw that line.”

Mufti added that most Muslims do not wear a Turban. It is in fact Sikhs who typically wear this piece of garment. (Which kind of makes you wonder what he’s upset about, then.)

In explaining why he put up the display in the first place, Murdy pointed to his concerns about Islam.

“The Muslims and Islam is one of the most violent cults there is,” he opined. “It is not a religion. It’s a cult. Their Quran says nothing but violence.”

Murdy did acknowledge the existence of peaceful Muslims, though he pinned some of the blame for radical Islamic terrorism on them, arguing that they should do more to stop it.

“That was intended to show my feelings on what’s happening to our country and other parts of the country,” he concluded.

Would it have worked better if the Muslim was holding a scimitar above his head, or wielding a knife over a kneeling Christian? I think it would have been more accurate and harder to complain against; though they certainly would try. ("How dare you try to shoot a fine upstanding Muslim as he obeys Mohammad's command to behead a kafir!")

If Muslims are offended then something has been achieved. If they wish not to be offended then perhaps they should clean up their religion or find another one. Offensive speech is not necessarily hate speech. Either way both are free speech and protected.
