When politians and Muslims defend Islam or says that Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam and the Quran, they never back their claims with proofs. That is because there are no proofs… What you will hear instead is politicians giving emotional statements such as ‘Islam is a religion of peace’ or Obama’s sentimental (and quite telling) outbursts such as “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer” and “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”. And how do Muslims defend their religion? By trying to intimidate the critics, hack their homepages or simply kill them. Not very advanced, but unfortunately quite effective, as many people – also in the free world – do not dare to speak the obvious, life-saving, civilization-preserving truth.
Translated from Tagesanzeiger:
Protests followed the article about the Quran by satirist Andreas Thiel: First, the editorial offices of the weekly newspaper had to be guarded by security guards. Then hackers apparently attacked their website.
… “World Week” printed an article where the Qoran was severely criticized. In a five-page piece, satirist Andreas Thiel criticized the holy book of the Muslims. For him, the Qoran is the”core of the problem,” Thiel writes.
After the article appeared, Thiel has received threats …
In an interview with the newspaper Switzerland on Sunday Andreas Thiel defended his article. The satirist explained why he is competent enough to write about the Quran. “When I write about the Quran, then I read the Quran before,” says Thiel. After reading it he was so upset that he decided to publish his findings. Thiel adds: “We live in a free country where everyone can express their opinion freely.'”
